Like many Halloweens, the weather for this one was MUCH colder than the week before trick-or-treat night. BUT-- at least it didn't rain on us this year. This picture is from when the girls first got their costumes in the mail. They were SO excited. And at that time they didn't have to layer other clothes underneath their costumes to tolerate the outdoors. It's never fun to talk them into "ruining" their costume in the name of keeping warm. So yes, there were a few tears from the big one about adding tights... but once she knew there was make-up coming to finish her look last night she was a-ok.
Another not-so-fun fact for Halloween '11 is Grandpa Worth (Larry Sr) is at Riverside Methodist Hospital. As we prayed for his speedy recovery, Grandma Betty came over with Aunt Pam to pass out candy.
Also new this year-- The Rodocks joined in the Trick-Or-Treak fun. Izz (aka Dora 2.5y/o) caught on from Clawdeen Wolf and Wonder Woman QUICKLY on how the process works to get good grub. Baby Mac--who's character goes quack-quack--didn't mind his Mommy wearing the crazy Dora wig while she toted him around our neighborhood.
Speaking of crazy... we're always wondering what crazy costume Grand will wear each year. Here she is... "The Count" From Sesame Street. As always she entertained the ENTIRE neighborhood. Our girls didn't mind The Count coming along to each house, but didn't even realize it was one of our relatives until it was time to go in and count candy bars. Dora, however, was not excited to have The Count anywhere near her candy--hopefully by next year she'll catch on to how the holiday works around here.
Now it's November... YIKES! And who's going to come over and help us eat all the loot? At least we moved all the Almond Joys to someone else's house. Ha! More pics in album titled: Halloween 2011.
