Down Came the Rain...

...and washed the spider out! Okay, our spider was spared such tragedy and stayed in the comfort of home with Grandma and Papa while Rudy, Spiderman, Jungle Fury Red Ranger and I went trick-or-treating around the block. The rain stayed away for most of the outing; coming down pretty good at some points, but didn't interrupt our path of travel really.

Our first stop every year is the house up at the top of our court, The Schlosser's, whom we have ties with for many years (even before moving to this neighborhood). Thunk-Thunk. Into the kids' TOT bags went the biggest
Hershey's Symphony bars I have ever seen. The kids were off to a great start, dragging their bags already! Many homes were dark (many vacant) this year, and others carved less pumpkins and set out less decor than usual. Even my pumpkin-carving took a backseat this year! The boys ran from home to home gathering their loot. Donovan stayed back on some, as they were "too skeerie" for him.

Thanks to Gertie, Grandma and Papa for coming over to treat with us!

Hey what happened to three spider men? ~LOL~ the black spider man, the real spider man and the spider? I would have thought Dominic would want to be something different. and I thought DJ told me he was gonna be the red power ranger...

the boys are gorgeous as always. Glad Devin got to help hand out candy, we only gave out to one kid... Buzz was the lucky one

I'm sure the babies would have enjoyed going with them again this year.

I think we need a cool theme next year. I say we have a halooween costume for the adults, with Mojitos...

Alex, the boy across the street was Buzz Lightyear... and Sydney went up to him and was all "I love Buzz" ~lmao~ it was a crack up.
