Last night was a fabulous treat or treat fest! Trick or treating in our little town is always special. like the ole days. Liam dressed up as Judge Van Cleef-a poker playing judge from the 1800's.
here's part of our motley crew:
Birdsong's house is always the best-how's this for spookiness:
i dressed as a crazed zombie knitter. while getting ready i realized i don't own a stitch of make- up. how could i make my face zombie-esque? i can tell you what doesn't work- face cream and a dusting of flour-definitely does not work. burnt wood chips from the burn pile didn't work either. what a dilemma i was in-no stores for face paint or make up. i had to make do- oil pastels from the art box! at least i could put on some stitches-
red modeling paint on my knitting needles worked great!
can you see the blood tipped needles? should have done a close up. oh well. Liam brought in a haul- jeez we only eat this stuff once a year. some houses gave out full size candy bars! and one even gave fancy italian truffles-wow!
check out the baby ruth bar-i totally snagged it. i can't remember the last time i had a baby ruth bar. all this candy brings back memories. liam got a huge score of kit kats. did you know the Japanese are REALLY into kit kats and they have tons of different and unique flavors.
i leave you with a fabulous image......the book in the buggy is "rosemary's baby"
