Well this Halloween has come and gone. Boy did it have its share of excitement! We got the kids dressed around six last night and met up with my my wife’s side of the family including my two nieces and nephew. In our area of the world we have to drive to subdivisions down the road in order to let the kids get the full effect of Trick or Treats. So we head to one neighborhood and I stay in the car with my flasher’s on while my wife walks with the kids door to door. Just FYI…it’s cold out and the Tennessee South Carolina game is on the radio. Tennessee won by the way! Anyway back to the night. We ease through this neighborhood with no big drama and head for the next site. There must be a hundred cars parked and hundreds of people walking around Trick or Treating. Perfect place no doubt! So we find a place down the street to park and yes I leave the comfort of the heater and the entertainment behind and walk with the family into the darkness.
We start walking and the kids start running and it turns into Halloween comedy hour! We have an angel, Harry Potter, A witch, a butterfly, and a little pumpkin walking with us. The first house we come to the witch steps right into a mud puddle that sucks the shoe right off of her foot. All of the other kids are running to the door and when we get her shoe back on she starts running too only to have her skirt fall down around her ankles. We get her dressed again and she finally gets to this door and gets her prize. We hit a few more houses and start to approach a house that is all decked out for the night complete with several adults dressed like monsters. Now it may be fun to scare the older kids a little and maybe the moms. But people when the little kids come up lay off! Lay off or get dealt with by my family! LOL! So all of the kids are going to the door braving the scene and monsters for the reward. My wife goes with them and they quickly ease up behind her to scare her. Now the kids have made it to the door and got the candy just in time to see mommie jump out of her skin and scream! I don’t know if it was the scream of mommie or the monsters moving but all Hell broke loose at that point! Mama slaps at the monster, Harry Potter HITS the monster with his magic wand, the pumpkin runs into the butterfly knocking her into a running Angel who keeps her balance and gets the hell outta there, The witch starts running and you guessed it runs her skirt down to her ankles again and I just stand there and laugh because at this point ALL OF THE OTHER KIDS IN THE AREA have seen this and are now screaming and running at this point. All in all it was a pretty uneventful Halloween night.
