Halloween 2010

This year was a different Halloween for us. Usually what happens is that we Trick-or-Treat at Matt's work (and get a ton of candy) and then go Trick-or-Treating at local businesses (again, tons more candy). Matt and I never dress up, mostly because we're too lazy.

But this year? Matt and I found easy costumes to wear, which we donned when we went to a Halloween potluck on Saturday and we also went door-to-door Trick-or-Treating tonight. I must say, I liked this year so much better. There wasn't so much candy that we had to invoke the candy fairy to get rid of it. Which is good, for the candy fairy, because the candy fairy hadn't gotten anything to replace the candy with this year.

Iris dressed as Junie B. Jones on Saturday. I have no idea what she was doing in this picture, but it is hilarious!
Eloise as batman on Saturday.

This is the only picture of me dressed up. I added a fanny pack and an obnoxious brimmed hat. Also? You can't see my Tevas with black socks. I was an obnoxious tourist. Sadly, this was the only picture of me in semi-costume.

Junie B. Jones Trick-or-Treating. We decided to go up to the girls' aunt and uncle's neighborhood, which is, if I may, a wealthy area of Seattle full of mansions-- many of which were super decked out for Halloween. It was so much to go check it out this year! Hundreds of kids in the streets. Last said last year they had about 1,000 trick-or-treaters!

The girls' aunt and uncle live in house with several other people. They, and I suspect many other friends, made their house in to "Zombies Inc" this year. They went ALL out! The premise was that they were selling zombies to do different jobs, like maids, groundskeepers, nannies. There were a bunch of zombies lurking around and then the salespeople selling them. And below is the girls' uncle, who was protesting these zombies, because they took jobs away from real humans.
Here is a shot of their house from the outside. When we went up to it the first time there were a few zombies around and some had arranged with families who were there to have the zombies run up and grab their kid and run off with him/her. We witnessed one of these, which was hilarious from my point of view, but it scared Eloise so much she started sobbing. We had to avoid the zombie house after that!
Another house on our trick-or-treating route.
Here we have the infamous "vagina pumpkin". The anatomy in question is the circle at the very bottom. The story behind it is that Eloise asked Matt to carve a butt and a "peachy" (her made-up word for vagina) in to it. Before Matt got to work, he decided to ask Eloise to draw a picture on the pumpkin of the "peachy" so that he could cut it out. She drew a small circle, and voila, it became the vagina pumpkin!
And here is Iris's pumpkin.

Happy Halloween everyone!
