Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2010 Leave a comment

Another year of trick-or-treating is in the books.

“Little” used his Luke Skywalker costume as an excuse to keep his crazy long hair. “Middle” couldn’t decide what he wanted to be, then opted at the last-minute to recycle his older brother’s Jack Sparrow costume from a few years ago. “Big” has officially reached I-don’t-dress-up age, but came along to help with the little guys.

It’s weird to watch these guys and try to remember how I felt, how I acted at their ages, when it came to Halloween. I can certainly recall being fired up about each year’s new costume.

I love being able to slow down, soak in these little pieces of childhood, and even relive a little bit of my own with them (like little Mr. Skywalker).

So, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to carry on a time-honored Halloween tradition.

That’s right. I’m going to eat half their candy while they’re asleep, before they get a chance to assess the loot tomorrow.

Halloween house hunting

My family and I have been searching for some Griswolds of the graveyard. You know, people who go all-out with their Halloween decorations.

If we spend enough time looking for other homes with over-the-top spooky setups, my wife and kids wouldn’t have time to go overboard on ours. Well, that was my plan, anyway. Instead, they’re inspired.

Check out these two houses:

Cool, huh?

How about this? They’re actually across the street from one another. Tough to one-up the dead décor in that neighborhood.

My wife wants to decorate our house for Halloween.

Great Pumpkin Mountain - 2010 Pumpkinfest at Pony Express Museum

I hope she doesn’t want to do something like this, because that’s a lot of pumpkins.
