All Hallows Eve

Sunday, November 01, 2009 Edit This 18 Comments »
We went to a ward Halloween party.  The church had been turned into a haunted house and the place was filled with the sound of kids screaming.  They had games and music and fun and food.  Enough food to feed a couple of third world countries.  I can't tell you how much I love that about our church...

Meet Agent M from Men In Black:



Meet Zombie C...



And Queen of the Undead, A...



No smiles.  Staying in character.

'Twas a great night trick or treating.  A bountiful haul.  I paid the kids for their candy (I do it every year, and because they love cash more than sugar, they take the money with obscene amounts of glee.)
Now, what to do with the candy?  Maybe I could give the lot to Cheryl who is sending her candy to the starving children in Africa.  Because every starving child needs candy.  Let's face it.

If I pay my kids they would just lose, or eat the money.

I've thought about paying my kids for the candy, but I know they would take the money and use it to by more candy.

Tricia said...

Oops...that's "buy" more candy.

Great costumes! Great idea on paying the kids for their candy and donating it somewhere else. :)

Our kids gave half theirs to the Great Pumpkin, which let's face it, means that it goes to the starving people who live in the master bedroom.

I have a teenager who wears that face all the time. Talk about staying in character; he's been doing the "zombie" role for three years!
