I enjoyed seeing the kids at our little Halloween party for them at Church. My favorite costume was Hannah Montana! And she came up with it herself...which I thought was even better. Here she is with her pirate sister.

For some reason, I decided to dress up this year. I'm not sure why. I guess I just thought it would be fun. Someone asked me what I was. I said, umm...Scary?

I would not remember that I looked ummmm... scary, and was trying to take some photos of some of the kids. Some of the little kids were a little nervous of me. Look at some of these expressions.

This is Dennis the Menace.

It took a lot of coaxing for this puppy to get this close to me.

I also had watched the Martha Stewart Halloween special and put this little spider together with glow sticks. I put on a spider web on my trunk. It was a big hit!

I only had 16 trick or treaters at my house. I guess I should be glad I get any with the neighborhood I live in. Hope you all had fun!

did most of the kids really not recognize you? That's funny. Who is Dennis the Menace? Cute pictures.

The older kids did, but the younger ones didn't. Dennis the menace is Jakob Ruttenbur.

Very good costume Suzanne. I did not see you that night as I was stuck trying to run one of the side-shows at the end of the hall most of the night when I wasn't out trying to track down donuts at 7pm (a hint: they are non existent at that hour).

I have a little insight as to why Dennis the Menace and the little princess there are looking at you like that. Jordan trick-or-treated with that family last night and I discovered that they are not allowed to dress up in 1. make-up of any kind or 2. in a scary costume of any kind. Given those two parameters I am almost surprised they are allowed to trick or treat at all.

I also found this ironic as one year their oldest child distressed me with his Halloween costume to the point that I almost left the ward Halloween party altogether. He was wearing a live rat on his shoulder.

To each his own - but leave your RODENTS at home!

There is nothing scarier than a live rat as far as I am concerned! Gross!

Cynthia said...

A rodent? Yuck! Yuck! Yuck! Yuck!

Love you costume, Suzanne! Your "spider" came out really cute, too. (Although I'm generally about as excited about spiders as I am about rats. Shudder!)

I had 77 trick-or-treaters this year--up 13 from last year. My choir will be glad I overbought the treats again this year. ;-)
