Halloween has never been as fun for me as it was when I was a kid in the suburbs. We would be wandering the streets all night for miles. Meanwhile hordes of kids would be coming to the house for candy. Since I moved here it's another story. Out here in farmland the houses are so far apart you don't get trick-or-treaters. My first year was such a disappointment. We finally learned to go to the developements. John would fill a truck w/straw and we would get as many kids as we could and off we'd go for a night of trick-or-treat.
Every year we would put up this little display for Halloween and the kids would pose for a picture. Until someone (probably like THIS person) stole my scarecrow and my joy.
Here are some costumes from Halloweens past...
Here's my first little trick-or-treater.
Michael rocked the pirate 2 years in a row.
Little Red Riding Hood made a comeback.
Last year Johnny was Wayne from "Waynes World". Excellent.
