happy halloween!!

halloween started off excellent. we met up with some friends and watched the parade in crestline at 4:00pm. this was our first year to experience it, and we will definitely be back. they had a ton of floats that threw out halloween beads with bats and pumpkins on them, as well as candy, moon pies, and even t-shirts. the girls loved it, and i loved watching the mabster run to pick up all the goodies that were landing towards her. it was her first parade experience, and it was a lot of fun. here are some pics.after the parade was over, we walked to the nearby playground. we let the kids run around and burn off some energy as we made our drinks and ate some yummy zoes. you know it's going to be a good night when it starts off with a parade and a picnic in the park. here are some pics...so after we all finish eating dinner, we all walk back to our cars to replenish our "drinks" (ya know, the kind that keep you oh-so warm and fuzzy on such a cold night). we make sure we have all the essentials that are needed for proper halloween trick-or-treating, and i snap a quick group picture minus a few others. so on to the strip of houses that decorated like mad with tailgate tents, scary lighting and effects, live music, and haunted tunnels. it was awesome. now *this* is what trick-or-treating is suppose to be like...so we let the kids trick-or-treat until the sun went down and everyone was exhausted (us included). i loved the fact that a lot of the houses handed out glowsticks with candy. the mabster loved wearing her neon necklace, and toshy cuddled up with tita karmie. during our trick-or-treating festivities, lola called and told us that they were back from the auburn game already and that papaw wanted to see the kids in their costumes. we decided it was a good idea to end the trick-or-treating for the night since the girls had already racked up on more than enough halloween candy.the above picture is of the mabster showing me how much candy she received. she was so utterly cute to watch as she'd walk up to each house, say "trick or treat" and then "thank you." not to mention, that she was SO happy when she got a pack of skittles. all i heard all night was, "mommy, i got some skittles!" also, i couldn't help but notice how erect and upright her bumble bee antennas were at the start of the night, and as it progressed, they were nothing more than some droopy sticks. love it.

so as soon as we get into the car at around 8:00pm, both girls PASS.OUT. we lug them into lola and pawpaw's house where we all eat a warm cooked meal and talk about the day. it was the perfect ending to a slam-packed crazy busy FUN day. i am not kidding when i say that i am ready to do it all over again. hope everyone had an awesome halloween weekend!(disclaimer: before we left lola and pawpaw's house, tita karmie put on her halloween costume for brand and lisa's party that she was attending. she couldn't wait to show me, and for good reason...it was fan-freakin-tastic. she dressed up as "saint clare of assisi (the patron saint of television)." this is no joke. seriously. google it. there really is a patron saint of the TV. i swear my older sister is brilliant. only a mind like hers can come up with this shiznit. again, it's cool if you're catholic. we appreciate the humor of our own religion. god bless you DVR.)

I am Karlas co worker Debbie we were just browsing thru your pictures and she showed me her sister who is dressed up as a saint. Well the only thing is that I have never heard of that saint have you? I hope you don't miss heaven and go there dressed up like that you just might not get in ha ha Debbie

That last comment was from Super Nurse Debbie Doo. She's just messing with Karmie. She likes to stalk this blog . . . like many others.
Your costume was da bomb, Melons! You are creating mine next year. I'll be anything you want me to be. Brilliant.

I pray for the intersession of St. Jerome, Patron Saint of Translators, to help me in my quest to decipher Debbie's atrocious grammar. In your mercy may she stumble upon a dictionary... or at least proper punctuation.

Amen.

If she does find a dictionary, maybe she can locate the word I deliberately misspelled. See, my posts are sarcastic and educational.
