Halloween night was a blast! Annie, Betty and I dressed as Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck and Donald Duck respectively. My bro-in-law Danny came, and Annie shared her Minnie Mouse ears with him.
So with two Minnies in tow, we were ready for a night out on the town!
Too bad nobody decided to celebrate Halloween on our street.
But when has having nobody to party with ever stopped us before? We went to explore our dark and candyless neighborhood in order to see which house we were going to egg in the morning.
To light our path we gave Annie two glow sticks. Glow sticks have many uses, and I taught Anne all of them. She now knows how to rave, and... well, that's just about all their uses.
Anne's still too small to walk around, and I'm too lazy and/or weak to carry her, so we decided to push her in her princess car. The car was not only a great stroller for Annie, but it also helped to run over kids who were taking too long to go Trick or Treating.
Our neighbors were practically the only people giving out candy on our street, so we decided to go loot their candy bowl. But lo and behold, our neighbor dressed like a Loyola fan. Scary! We fled in fear!
Nobody else was really doing much on our street, so we went to the neighborhood across from us. It's like the Mecca of Halloween. Seriously, people flocked to this neighborhood to bring their kids there. There were cars parked all over the place, and the residents had set up tables outside with lots of candy and decorations. The parents were dressed up, and one guy had a haunted house going.
It made us feel like this:
One guy even had the LSU vs. Tulane game on a projector outside his house. The guy across the street from him had the best view of the game. We were jealous!
We had a great time in that neighborhood. Everyone thought Annie was cute, they loved her car, and they loved our costumes. We even ran into a few of our neighbors, and then we had to scratch them off the list of people's houses to egg. We couldn't hold it against them for attending such a great block party.
I can't wait until next year so we can go Trick or Treating in that great neighborhood again!
