These fun visitors practiced reverse Trick or Treating and brought us goodie bags with yummy candy and treats including these fangs!!!!!! Yeeee-owllllll! (I didn't doctor my red eyes with our computer program red eye elimination feature, so I could appear more scary.)

It Was a Dark, Not Stormy Night...
But wait! There's more! Our next door neighbors invited us over for a chili cook-off in their garage with lots more neighbors and friends in attendance. It was such a fun night...and I am still saddened to hear there are those who loathe this light-hearted holiday featuring costumes and candy. It is what you make it out to be. I choose to look at it through the eyes of the child within me.
Also stopping by: the adorable FLASH GORDON and his mom -another former co-worker. Who says librarians aren't any fun?
Much to my surprise, I was greeted at the door by these grown-ups!! Yes, Gene Simmons came Trick or Treating at my house - talk about how we rose on the "cool" scale in our neighborhood to have a heavy metal rocker come to our door! With him, my lovely co-worker "Witty" and their feline, Pompey. We had our first costumed cat ever!
It actually was THE perfect night for all those Trick or Treaters! No jackets were needed to be worn, so the costumes could all be viewed with out cover-ups. As always, the kids were the high point of the day. However, one of my favorite costumes was a mom wearing her wedding dress from 14 years ago...she painted her skin green and wore a headband with little green ears and was Fiona, bride of Shrek!!
