Halloween was pretty boring for us...we stayed home and handed out candy to the hoardes of kids that came tromping through the neighborhood. They started around 5pm and went until past 10pm.

One of the cutest kids came to our door fairly early...around 7:30 or so. He was dressed as Humpty Dumpty. We handed him a piece of candy and he wanted to come inside our house. His mom gently told him to come with her. He abruptly turned around and stepped towards her. This looked so funny in his amazing egg costume that we laughed. He abruptly turned around back towards us and happily stared at us. This happened about three more times.

I kept saying how cute he was. And he was. His mom then said, You can come see him anytime...we live right across the street. That's when we realized that we were face-to-face with Little Sister and the Nub! HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Little Sister was dressed as either Alice in Wonderland or Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Ellie Mae was also present and was dressed as a princess or something unoriginal(all the girls this year were princesses or fairies...BOOOORRRRRRRRRIIIIINNNNGGGG!!!!)and was quiet as a mouse. Beavis was nowhere to be seen. Thank goodness!

As far as we know, this was the first year that Ellie Mae has been taken trick-0r-treating in our neighborhood. The poor little thing looked scared, but I don't know whether it's because she was freaked out by Halloween in general or by coming up to our house in particular.

We'll see where all this goes...
