Midnight Monday-Our Halloween

Something very exciting happened this year! WE GOT A TRICK-OR-TREATER!!!!!

This is very exciting because we have never had a trick-or-treater here. The first year, the OTW made me a costume (a Viking!), took pictures of me in it, and tried it on Whisper too (no luck there). She decorated the house, put on a costume, and had a bowl of candy all ready to go, and not one trick-or-treater came to the door.

The second year she kinda faked costumes for me and Persephone (Persephone's frootbat wings were really on a wire, and my costume of Dr Doom only worked because she put a world beside me); she decorated a little, skipped wearing a costume and wore black, and had a box of candy in the cupboard just in case, and not one trick-or-treater came to the door.

The third year, she photo-shopped most of our costumes (Persephone really was wearing Karl-ish sunglasses, and I had on a real mask, but the rest... though the Hendrix/Bendrix bandanas were COOOOOL!), stuck a couple of Halloween black cat decorations where she could see them, wore whatever she wanted, and didn't bother buying candy, and not one trick-or-treater came to the door.

This year...we did not have to get dressed up at all. Or even have our pictures changed. She did not decorate the house. She wore grey. The Big One did bring home candy because it was already on sale, and it's the only kind of Halloween chocolate bars she can have because they don't put peanuts in any of them, and ONE trick-or-treater came to the door! (Though she had to rip open the box and dump the candy in a bowl to give him some!)

I think the trick-or-treater came because she didn't make us dress up!

We ignored the whole thing and went to Mickey and Mrs. Peach's wedding and when we got home we decided we wanted to dress up and go trick-or-treating ourselves 'cause it was still early out west when it was night at the wedding. But then we found out we had both dressed up as Basement Cat and were so mortified at wearing the same costume we had to take a long nap!


We had a Treat-bag ready and everything!

We did see something really scary near dawn though...


Vishus Ghost Deers!!!

Our mom says that's just about right! When you don't dress up and prepare, that's when you have trick or treaters! LOL! Same thing happened to us! We had 5 this year and none of us dressed up!

WOWZERS! Those vishus ghost deer look super scary!!!!!!!

We don't get trick or treaters here, but mum said that is the sort of thing that happens to her, like when unexpected visitors never turn up when she has just vacuumed, but always when the place is a tip.

The mom and dad here have never had the trick or treaters either We live in the country and I don't think maybe the kids celebrate Halloween. That would explain why they don't come huh?
Love your little black pumpkin that you had to hold all of your candy.
I am wondering if those bad deers were someone dressed up to look like them for Halloween. Anyway you have to be careful in case they are the real ones.

Yeah that's probably it. They were all scared because you had scary costumes! We had three trick or treaters here...

Well, Jack, if you ever want to see some trick-or-treaters, come to our house...we must get about 100 of those noisy creatures!! Hey, maybe it's because we don't wear costumes! Next year, we're gonna dress up...then we won't get any!

But the scariest thing of all are those vishus ghost deer! Quick! Hide!!!

First two years here we didn't get any, either, so we don't bother now. But I could hear dogs barking all over the place, which I thought was quite unnerving!

ha ha ha you both dressed as Basement Cat. ha ha ha Next year be sure to consult.

We had no trick or treaters for 2 years. Mommy cried cause she did the outside decorations and always buys tons of candy and gets dressed up. She wound up eating a bunch of mini candy bars and watching Garfield's Halloween on DVD.

Luckily, as more houses went up, we got kids. This year we had a ton! We went thru 7 bags of candy (each kid gets 3 pieces cause mommy wants to be the most popular house...) but have no Reeces left! sad.

How exciting! We had more trick-or-treaters here than last year, but still not that many.

But go figure, huh? Just when you weren't ready... ;)
