How come the Moon is following us?

My adorable little Pooh. A neighbor kept telling
him over and over again that he had "poo" all
over him. I told him that he was only 3 and he
wasn't going to get it. Didn't keep him from
saying it 3 more times. Unbelievable. I am going
to miss putting my children in this costume. The only
thing that has topped Pooh is Piglet.
Miss Boo went as a Sea Lion Princess.
Project Runway here we come.
The costume was all her idea!
I went as myself but wore makeup to a Halloween Party.
Miss Boo's 2nd costume was knight and the Dude
kept asking why the Moon was following us.

Trick or Treat sounds so sweet from little children's lips.

The rules were given in anticipation of the nights events and the natives were in agreement. At one point Mr. Finn said it cost $2.00 to have him take them out for Halloween as a joke. Miss Boo said she wasn't giving him the money Grandma and Grandpa sent for the holiday. A short time later, The Dude walks over to his Daddy and says, "Here's your $2 dollars to take me Trick or Treating tonight. Now that's a kid that wants to get some candy.

In his case, he just wanted to see the "Creepy" stuff. For a 3 year old, he is extremely thrilled by all things Halloween and spooky. There is a house the street behind us that really decorates to win a contest. Not sure what one that is, but they out do themselves every year in their "quest". This year turned out to be the "unbelievably freaky, scary, terrifying, horror, spooky house with a real haunted house done in their 3 car garage.

Our children were terrified! In the past years, it has been a coffin with a vampire in the garage, this year it was full blown terror with jumping ghouls and screaming "whatevers". Had I known, I would never have taken my little children in there. I fear we will be paying for therapy in the years to come.

Miss Boo could hardly get control of herself. I remember when I was around 10 or so and went to a haunted house in Great Falls, Mt. It was in an old factory building and honestly was very CREEPY. I was so scared they had to take me out in the middle of it because I was screaming so much. She gets her terroritis from me. Not a bad quality I might add, but I feel so bad about exposing our children to that. Especially at such a young age.

It was fun this year. A little more exhausting than I remember the previous years, but it was still a blast.
