We had an amazing evening Halloween night.  Ol’ Blue Eyes LOVES Halloween. It’s his favorite holiday and he LOVES to dress up. He’s been known to scare his friends as Freddy Kreuger, be adorable as the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz, or loveable Gomez from the Addams Family.  As wicked as he looked this year, you will have to wait for the reveal so I can start at the beginning with our oldest punk. 

He wanted to be Sir William Wallace, and yes, we watched Braveheart. 

Yes, I made his costume.  It seems you can’t really find a kilt in the Texas panhandle.

Our youngest punk wanted to spend his evening popping out everywhere and doing more tricking than treating.  He went as Jason.

This is the only type of image I could get of him.  He just kept running at me (and knocking me over), and trying to scare me every time I tried to take his picture.  If it wasn’t that, then he was getting as close as possible to my camera for the full creepy effect.

And now for  the reveal of Ol’ Blue Eyes.

Warning:  The image you are about to see is only for those with strong constitutions.

You still have time to turn back and read no further.

Are you sure you want to do this? 

Do you know that images can be seared into one’s brain, forever?

You’re running out of time…..

Hello?  Are you still there?  Hello?

Did you hear that?  I think I just lost my readership to this blog. 

Scary fact #6  When you wear white makeup on your face, it pronounces the fact that your teeth aren’t white.  Ugh.

Scary fact #7  Ol’ Blue Eyes loved his tattoo sleeves (oh goodness).

Scary fact #8  Ol’ Blue Eyes can fold his tongue in half and demonstrated this to our friends… and yes, they are still our friends.

Last year, Ol’ Blue Eyes had the genius idea to rent a golf cart for the evening.  It was a big hit, so this year our neighbor rented the golf cart.  My sweet neighbor’s daughter went as a Whoopie Cushion.  Here she is with my youngest punk.

And don’t you know my neighbor was thrilled to have this front seat passenger with him?

Sorry Vernon.

Anyways, we all had a great time. 

Scary fact #9  My oldest punk spoke with a Scottish accent all night, and had a hard time speaking normal again.

People refused to give my youngest punk candy unless he removed his mask.  He was not happy about this, but complied because he wanted their candy.  It really worked out fine.  He made more friends that way.  See the guy with the yellow teeth (just like mine)?


Wondering what is coming up the walk?  Aliens… with no bag of candy in their hands…and they followed us too… maybe he was real!  Ahhhh!


We had a fun, late, sugar coma filled evening and got many treats (that we can’t quit eating).

Today, we are back to reality (grrrr).  Kids at school.  Ol’ Blue Eyes back to work.  Me back to editing pictures and blogging… oh yeah, and working from home.  Which brings me to this…

Scary fact #10  I miss Halloween.  Can we do that again?
