We had an amazing night- we spent it with Kyra's mother-in-law and she really does it up right. We are semi-rural and get few if any Trick-or-treator's so it was super-fun for us to be in an area that gets tons- and Holly got extra as some people told us they went back and brought others or called them to come see.
She had everything from a broom that chased you to remote controlled rats, a magic mirror, bubbling cauldron, little cemetery, skeletons, giant spiders and more.
She always does a lot, but this year we (girls and I) were part of a living scene- Dr. Devon was a mad scientist, Casey was Dolly and Dawn was the Headless Horseman, a couple of her less than successful experiments and I was a zombie offering to trade candy for brains.
It was hysterical as we scared the heck out of some of the older kids, and the talking mirror was snarky except with the littlest tykes and some were so confused it was very hard to keep a straight face.
Kyra alternated between a fortune-telling gypsy, a witch, the voice in the mirror and taking Ian trick-or-treating.
We had so much fun!
So my delightful, precious children dressed as: Dolly, The Headless Horseman, the Evil Dr. Devon and a Fortune-Telling Gypsy.
After wearing it day after day and wanting it constantly when the big day finally gets here Ian wanted nothing to do with his Thomas costume, but Kyra finally got him into it by bribing him. He was adorable and polite as can be, though, so that made up for it.
Holly did an amazing job decorating inside and out. Unfortunately my camera settings got knocked out of whack so only a few came out, but here they are for your enjoyment.
