The Bee Hive

Sometimes it's honey; sometimes it's sting...

This is me, and Nissa, taken around 4:30pm, before the trick or treaters started coming. I had forgotten to put my bright red lipstick on yet, though. I was horrified when at 5:20 we started getting rain and high winds. It kept up for awhile, then calmed down, but began again periodically during the evening. I was so surprised that we did so well with trick-or-treaters in all of that. In fact, we did better than last year. We had 121! YAY! I was so busy that I couldn't keep up with everything but, I think princesses were about the most prolific costume. There were a few soldiers, 2 cowgirls, a cowboy, 2 fairies, one cheerleader, many general scarey-ghosty-zombie-like costumes, a cereal killer, a few witches, 2 devils, a bee, a ladybug, a bunch of brides (all from one family), a lot of various super-heros, and one really neat Dr. Octopus?/Doc Oc?, I think they said it was. The boy had a kind of suit on, and silver pleated ducts attached to his back, that came around the front and had mechanical-looking claws on the ends. Very striking. I love homemade put-together costumes.
The adults I remember were Amy in her Lucy outfit (looked GOOD!), a soldier, three scarey 'hag' type costumes, and a glittery mismatched type costume. I was surprised there were no Fridas.
I have a LOT more photos, but I guess I'll dole them out one night at a time. The trick-or-treaters started coming at 5:45 and the last ones were around 8:30. Then Reagan, Amy and the boys came by again afterwards. When they stopped by the first time on the hayride/float, everyone said that there were not as many houses to stop at as years before. Many people who always participate, weren't doing it this year.
