(D-man's pumpkin. Honestly.....I got teary a few times on Halloween this year, because I realized that this was probably D-man's last time to come with us. Especially, early in the night when Rainman and D-man were - as they say in the south - being ugly with each other. Oh, I boo-hooed to Rainman that I didn't want the night to be remembered with them fighting, especially over stupid stuff like a dirty shower. D-man will be in college next year and I am fairly certain that coming home to trick or treat with us will be far down on his list of things to do on Halloween, for his new college life. )
We had different Halloween this year than we have had since we moved to Georgia. If you remember, way back when we first moved here, our mortgage guy and his family, took pity on us and invited us to go Trick or Treating with their family.
We became great friends and the tradition continued for the past 5 years....then.....they moved.
Boo for us, but yay for them. He had a horrible...horrible, commute to his job.
But, it meant that we were on our own for Halloween this year.
We had fun, but as we were climbing into bed that night, S-girl said to me, "That was fun tonight, but it just wasn't the same not going with "The Smiths". It was way more fun with them."
I agree. It was weird to be here in the south, asking people for candy without them by our side. LOL
We did look cute though.
D-man and J-girl were Jim and Pam from The Office...he is 3 hole punch Jim and she is Pam, dressed up as a cat.
It actually ended up being a good night of networking for her, because she met people from her neighborhood that she didn't know. She got a few babysitting jobs and even a tutoring job out of the night - in addition to candy! I would call that a win!
A-girl was a completely adorable scarecrow.
L-girl was a deer (insert numerous deer in the headlights jokes from Rainman here....ask L-girl if they got old. )
