We live in a circular street, so we all met at one mailbox, all dressed in our finery and then started off. Each house that wanted to join in the Halloween fun had to put a balloon on their mailbox. This way the children knew that they were going to houses that were expecting them. There were at least 50 or more of us all walking around the street. There were witches, zombies, scary cheerleaders, famous characters, movie dress-ups and home-made creations. It was truly awesome!
We started our trick-or-treating just before 6pm, so as you can imagine the night started to fall and the fun only got better. We saw lit pumpkins, lanterns, glow sticks, glow masks and outfits and light up spinners. Sophia carried a flashing wand of light (it helped to keep an eye on her in the dark too!)
I of course decked out the front of my house with spider webs, ghosts, two lack-o-lanterns with flickering battery operated candles in them (this helped tremendously that they didn't blow out cause it was really windy and I wasn't home to keep an eye on them!) I also had two more big pillar candles in the window, a skeleton and black cat. I turned our porch light green and installed a witchy doorbell that (apart from being rediculously loud!) also popped out a spider when you pressed it!!!
Now for my card:
