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.

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 and Batman on Halloween.
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.
