It was a windy day today for Halloween. But it was warm, so it made for a great afternoon of hot dogs with our friends in the Circle and trick or treating through the base afterwards. As usual, the kids scored big with the candy--which means Ted's office will score big because I've got to find a way to get it out of my house. All of it, that is, except any Snickers, Butterfingers, Twix, Almond Joys or, my all-time favorite, Take 5s.
We always try to do a family costume theme. Unfortunately, it didn't work this year--Cory would only do a theme if it was a Star Wars theme. So when the family theme broke down, it was easy for Mom and Dad to opt out--we dressed as a happy couple. Riley was a jellyfish, and Mary Beth was a mermaid:
Lucy was a sea turtle:
And Cory was Captain Rex, a Star Wars Clone:
Lucky for Cory, half the Circle liked his theme idea, so he was not alone.
