Punkin Carving and Trick Or Treaters

Yesterday Ian and I carved our pumpkin. I'm surprised that it made it til Halloween as the squirrels have been nibbling on it here and there.

We decided to do Jack from the Nightmare Before Christmas. This pumpkin was really pulpy inside. Ian gave up on cleaning it after awhile and I had to finish.

Living in a neighborhood with 1400+ homes the night starts early. Our neighborhood is very generous with candy and many, many kids from the city come to our neighborhood to trick or treat.

Ian decided at the last minute this year he wanted to dress up, so we threw together a hobo costume for him. He manned handing out the candy at the start of the evening.

Our neighbor David across the street, had set up a spider web, along with a spider that he could "drop" on the unsuspecting trick or treaters as they made their way across the lawns.

This is our neighbor, Chris, who was dressed as a lawyer. Apparently I was being served a complaint on being a stingy neighbor...Settlement to resolve the complaint was 4 pieces of candy! LOL!

See the judge in his regal get up? That's Chris' dad, Steve. He was on hand to render any verdict that needed to be made. In real life Steve is a lawyer! LOL!

We had some of the cutest little trick or treaters. This little guy was so cute. He came up on the porch and told me "trick or tweet"! LOL!

We usually give out candy til about 7 then head off to a party at a friends house. Good Italian food, way to much wine and always a good time.

And as usual Daniella's party was spectacular!
