Halloween snuck up on Chrissy and I this year as my favorite girl was sick for nearly the whole month of October. With just a few hours left before the 31st we attempted to get in the spooky mood by carving jack o lanterns.
Chrissy's pumpkin turned out pretty good while my bat cut-outs didn't match my expectations. To offset the poor production quality I made it into a multi material art piece.
Now feeling the 'spirit' of the season we took ourselves out for beers and a scary theater show - the excellent Dead Centre of Town. The activities seemed to do the trick as we went from being blase to Halloween to excited for the next day.
Arriving home from work on the 31st Chrissy and I set-up our candy treats in preparation for the kids and donned our costumes.

In our excitement of getting ready we kind of blanked on the time and soon realized that we were actually way ahead of schedule. Chrissy boded her time through quality assurance testing while I had my own treat.
Just a note if you are looking into buying a cheap doctors outfit - the crotch really likes to 'bunch up'. I wouldn't consider this optimal for giving out candy to kids. Larry David feels my pain.
During the night we ended up getting 95 kids come to our door. There were plenty of Power Rangers, Spider Men, and Princesses. Chrissy waited near the door giddy to greet the children always on the lookout for a special visitor.
And then we saw an SUV pull into our driveway and our nieces Gabby and Michaella get out. They were getting pretty tired but did their best to match Auntie's excitement.
Eventually the activity at our door began to slow and Chrissy and I took a moment to capture our first Halloween together as a married couple.
