song of the day: 'witchy woman' by the eagles
ah! it was such a fun halloween this year. we didn't go to any parties, but there was trick or treating and candy aplenty. last night before we hit the streets, we went over to the cemetery to take creepy costume pics. maybe i'm crazy, but i expected there to be a lot more people wandering the tombstones. but, we were basically alone out there and no one yelled at us that we were being disrespectful, so it was a good time. i was a witch, isaiah dressed as dracula, and matt donned his perennial scary faceless mask. he's so funny with that thing. he'll drive to and from work with it on (around halloween, not like all year long) and just stare at people. at first, they'll laugh, but when matt doesn't say anything and keeps staring, everyone gets real nervous and creeped out. it's his favorite.
after leaving the cemetery, we headed out to get some goodies. there's nothing like the smell of halloween candy. it's the mixture of chocolate, sugary gum, and fruity candy that creates the most wonderful aroma. i will literally put my face in the candy bag and breathe in to savor it. i don't know, it's just so good. i am a candy freak though. i like dessert and all, but candy is my true weakness. especially sour gummy candy. nom nom. so needless to say, we ate a lot last night and then sent a tired but wired little vampire to bed. another successful halloween night.
