For the end of October, the weather was very warm yesterday. It rained off and on but that didn't stop the neighborhood kids from trick or treating.
Pi was dressed as a 50's girl. I made her costume, using THIS tutorial and pink felt for the skirt and some iron on poodles from the fabric store. Finding ruffle socks in an adult size was the biggest challenge of the entire costume.
Before we went trick or treating, we headed down to the town's pool complex, where a haunted house was set up. We went before 6, because that's when its for weenies. They say its for the 10 and under crowd. After that, they ramp up the craziness for the older kids.
Check out the line!
Pi and her friend held hands, just in case it was too scary. So cute!
I probably shouldn't have used my flash, but I did. Oh well!
There was a graveyard...
The Addams family (I think) watching tv...
and Frankenstein in the lab. He randomly sat up which got some of the kids freaked out, haha.
Then we went trick or treating. In a matter of only 3 blocks, Pi filled up both her pumpkin and a shopping bag full of candy.
Some houses had a "take your own" sign.
After the trick or treating, we went to a local house that goes nuts with their decorations and opens their doors to the neighborhood for a few hours. It was the last year they were going to do it, so we decided to go. I'm so glad we did because it was great. I left my camera in my neighbors car, because it was pouring by the time we got there. So no pics, but definitely fun.
After I eat Pi's candy, its time to start thinking turkeys...and birthdays, heehee!
