Halloween Pics
We didn't specifically count this year, but we estimate we had roughly the same number (~250) of trick-or-treaters as last year.

What we DID measure was the candy.

The giant vat of candy weighed 56 pounds at the start of the evening:

By the end of the evening, we were down to 6 pounds:

What can I say; I like to give out handfuls, rather than a couple of pieces each!  (A few of the kids actually said "Jackpot!", while I handed out their candy...)

Angela made us a cool pumpkin pirate to greet people at the door:

Angela also carved a couple of scary pumpkins for the bench in front of our house:

I built a graveyard next to the walkway, in the bark dust where a tree and a couple of bushes used to live:

All told, it was a good Halloween!  Click here for the rest of the pictures...

Dude! You totally need to send me the pumpkin pirate (or give me the OK to download it) to put on the TLAPD Flickr gallery!!!

I got maybe 30 T-or-Ters, a few more than last year, but the weather was better.

The pumpkin pirate is yours -- take it, do what you like... :)

I should mention that I was totally against the idea of a pumpkin pirate at first -- but Angela's creative powers should never be underestimated... :)

Yeah, the bushes all died around the same time. Cold, or bugs, who knows.

The tree was doing Just Fine Thanks -- too damn well. We specifically ordered a midget tree, that would stop growing before it did any damage to the house or sidewalk. But the one that we GOT, was showing no signs of slowing down -- so when the last dead bush came out, we had the nice landscapers pull the tree as well (apparantly just barely in time).

New plant life should be in place this spring, so the giant Halloween graveyard was probably just a one-time-event...
