I do it every year. I bought too much candy for the Trick or Treaters. And as usual, I wasn't smart enough to buy something that I didn't like such as Skittles or Laffy Taffy. So now I'm stuck with a large bag of Nestle Crunch Bars with Caramel. Stuck. Stuck.
The kids were all wonderful and the costumes were terrific. Mr. Eris Jr. won a prize at his school for the "most creative". He was a bottle of ketchup. Yup. Last night he told Eris that he no longer wanted to be Harry Potter because his friend Kelsey was going to be a hot dog. Okay... I don't know how long it took Eris but the resulting costume was great, especially when the hot dog joined him.
Little Ms. Eris was Luna Lovegood and Littlest Ms. Eris was a perfect Dobby. Eris was stunning as Ugly Betty, a costume that she claims cost her $4,000 (braces). Jubee was a football player.
Trick or Treating started out at Athena's office where they really know how to throw a party. No cheap mini-Tootsie Rolls at this place! One guy was handing out dollar bills, which really impressed the kids.
After we got back to the house the Princess, dressed as a ladybug joined us, along with the Duchess and Duke. It was a particularly stressful day in their kingdom due to the new cast that is on the Princess' left arm. But that is for another post.
