Trick or Treat?

A grand time was had by one and all!

We had our normal "Mad Max" brigade--a slew of golf carts decorated to the nines. The leader of the pack is always a big old tractor pulling a hay ride full of gleeful, screaming tots until the tractor stops and unloads on our street. The hub coined it Mad Max several years back on a cold Halloween night when it was foggy and all you could see were some faint lights and lots of smoke with the sound of children in the background. We always enjoy sitting on the porch watching the brigade pass by and unload. The hub was in NY this year, so I sat and watched on the porch by myself until the kid got back.

In one fell swoop, this entire basket of goodies was demolished and I had to resort to filling it back up with some of mom's rice crispy treats. I don't think the older ones quite appreciated that. So, I had to tell them to come early next year! (I had even found some wax lips and fangs which went in the first or second round of kids.)

The kid was Grandma Gilbert from the old country. teehe. (We don't have a Gilbert, mind you.) Thanks to Nana for donating her robe!

He enjoyed video chatting to the cuz before going out and hitting the streets. It just about scared her to death when that face popped up on the screen! Sorry Jacq! Trick!

The kid's best friend flew in from Los Angeles and he spent the night. They (and me too!) watched the live version of Ghost Hunters. It's always so boring! I like the other shows much better. Too much of nothing to watch. My friend Linda in VA and I always email each other to make sure we're watching. We crack each other up, "Are you watching?" "Did you heart that voice?" Love her. I miss having friends close. Sniffle.

Yesterday, I did my six-hour cakes class at Viking! I'll write about that a little later. Fun! I can tell you right here and now, my red velvet cake DID NOT look like this!

That mad Max brigade must be impressive! I love the Kid's disguise! Wow, I'd love to learn how to make cakes during six hours...

Cheers and have a great week,

Sounds like the Mad Max brigade was aptly named! lol We get a few cars around here that drop off some kids but most of the trick or treaters are from this neighbourhood. I remember at one time having over 200 kids every year but I guess the neighbourhood kids are getting older now and we're lucky to have 100 come by. Love the kid's costume, too funny!! hehe xoxo

I am very interested to hear about your cakes class!

You had more tricksters than we did. The kid looked cool! Oh,,and you do have a friend close by but we never seem to be able to hook up, hopefully when Jane comes we will see each other.

Can't wait to hear about your cooking class! Halloween looks wonderful at your house! I'm so glad you had a good time -- wish I'd had more goblins -- too much candy leftover!
