Halloween 2018

Halloween Dragon

This Halloween we visited our friends, the McCanns. We’ve been pretty lucky the past few years to go over to trick or treat in their neighborhood. Walking around there is like trick or treating in the E.T. movie or any movie where kids are trick or treating for Halloween, that isn’t a horror. It is idyllic. People are out in their garages that have been decorated and they have fire-pits and there are decorations galore. We’ve started making it a tradition to take a photo in front of one house that has a giant inflatable dragon.

All the Kids

We do a photo of Andrew and Eva and then with all five kids together. It is one of my favorite yearly photos. The kids even know to go and get in front of the dragon now, too. Everyone gathers up so Mr. Bennett can take his photo.

Mario and Luigi

This year, thanks to Nintendo, Andrew was Luigi from Luigi’s Mansion and the Super Mario games. Nintendo sent us the costume along with the giant flashlight and the Luigi’s Mansion game. The McCann’s middle son was Mario. Somehow we lost the mustache for Luigi so Allison had to draw one on him. The boys had a great night and they weren’t the only two Super Mario Brothers that we saw on our journey.

Eva was a character of her own design. She had us get a long violet wig and she carried a sword. She and her friend Maryana have created the character and I think the name was Abigail. However, I need to read the story to know all the details.

In all it was a great night with pizza, friends and lots and lots of great candy.

Halloween Clearance Buys at Target

Halloween Clearance
Photo-A-Day #4589

Walking through Target today I noticed that so many of the Halloween costumes and more were marked down a whole lot. I saw these big giant heads and decided to check out how much they cost. I ran them under the scanner and found out that they were 90% off. So, these $30 costume heads were $3. What do I need these for? Nothing. They are for absolutely nothing. However, I will probably use them to make silly videos for YouTube. Who knows.

I also found a couple of the LEGO Construction worker masks. They were marked down to $0.70. I actually picked those up first to use them with Built from Bricks.
