I love Halloween. Unless I'm sick, I always dress up and take treats to some of my favorite clients. I've done this for years. Now though, I don't really have clients anymore so I go visit friends and family. I only made five stops this year, but boy, it took all day!

Then I hurried home to wait for the cutest little trick-or-treaters on the planet to stop by.

Baby Shrek came as Tigger this year. Isn't this the cutest thing you've ever seen? He has a little tail in the back.

Baby Burrito was a little pumpkin. He went with me on my visits today. We went to see Auntie Kenna and Bampah, Grandpa Jim, Aunt Suan, and Mommy. This is when we were lunching at the Quilted Bear.

Both Baby Shrek and Baby Burrito were at my house at the same time. I tried to get a good photo of the three of us together. After several attempts, we gave up. They had more important things to do than to sit in Grandma's lap.

I'm thinking of disowning my daughters. I just don't understand how these individuals who were birthed by me would not fully participate in the Halloween spirit.

Melanie's sole contribution to the Halloween season was a pair of candy corn earrings (gift from Aunt Suan). She did however (after much coercion from me) put Baby Burrito's pants on her head and strike a pose.

Megan went with an orange top and candy corn earrings. I gave her multiple opportunities to pose for the camera. This is the best shot. Go, Meg.

I have no photo of McKenna, who was also wearing candy corn earrings. (If it weren't for Aunt Suan, they'd have done NOTHING!)

This is me. I am a witch. I was a little concerned that Baby Burrito might be disconcerted by my costume, and I did have a plan b, but he didn't mind at all. I was just Grandma, albeit a little funnier looking that usual.

Jim had a really cool rubber biker mask that he wore to work but took it off before the babies came by. We were afraid it would scar them for life. I forgot to have him put it back on for photos. But doesn't he look cute in a hoody? We've been married for almost 12 years and this is the first time I've ever seen him in a hoody. I think he needs to wear them more often.

Notably missing is my one true child who DID dress up for Halloween. Christopher was Borat. Destiny was with her father for Halloween so they didn't get to come visit me but I'm hoping they'll send photos which I will post at a later day.

ya, so what's up with those girls of yours anyway?

Thanks for the photo of Brandi and I.

Are you ok? Didn't see you at church today.

I love the candy corn earings. So cute. Those grandkids are super cute too.

I remember when I was a kid you used to come to our house all decked out in your witch costume complete with long scary fingernails! Halloween is such a fun holiday. I missed seeing little ghosts and princesses on the run since they don't really celebrate it here in Holland. Thankfully that didn't stop us from doing a little something.

Those little munchkins of yours are so cute, btw!
