So The Red Man has to admit we saw a duke’s mixture of trick or treaters at Casa de Canterbury last night. They started the procession at dusk around 5:30 and kept on coming for three hours. The old woman Slow and moi were Busy Bees handing out candy that Pretty brought home from the Mast General Store candy barrels. Pretty was in charge of Restraining Dog Exuberance while Slow was in charge of Happy Halloween greetings. Ugh. Sometimes her cheerfulness makes me so tired.
I don’t know why my mommy said she could take my picture
What’s that little dog’s name?
Ok these little girls win Best Smiles
Most Popular with the old woman Slow
And so Slow asked this little girl, Where did you get this football uniform costume?
And so the little girl said, It’s my uniform from my team.
And so Slow was astonished and said, You play on a football team? Which one?
And so the little girl said, Pop Warner Hurricanes.
And so Slow asked, What position do you play?
And so the little girl said, Quarterback.
And then of course The Red Man had to be embarrassed because Slow hugged the little football quarterback and went into this long soliloquy about how she’d always wanted to play football herself but little girls weren’t allowed to play football when she was growing up blah blah blah. The little girl didn’t way a word to any of that bullshit and FINALLY was rescued by her mother who said, Tell the nice woman thank you for the candy and we have to go. Geez Louise.
By the time we turned the lights out we were almost out of candy so let’s just say Canterbury Road and Manning Avenue rocked with Halloween Lovers in 2013 and our casa went right along with them.
Get me outta here Percy…I need to prep for the football games this weekend…Happy Friday Sports Fans – have a great weekend and hope all your favorite teams win except you-know-who-you-are…
Great photos! She loved the first two little cuties best. Ma said our Halloween was a bust. Only 2 kids came to the door. We finally closed shop at 8 pm. There’s loads of candy left. None of it what Ma likes. She did that on purpose so she wouldn’t eat it early. HA! But now we’re harboring 28 treat bags stuffed with sweeties and no one to eat them!!! Glad you had a better time of it even if you had to wear “decorations!” 😀
Good news and bad news for your house and trick or treaters. Bad News – not many came by. Good News – lots of candy left. Bad News – candy not delicious chocolates. Bummer all the way round for our friends in Pennsylvania. Moral of Story: ALWAYS buy candy you love to eat…:)
Well, didn’t you get the prettiest tricksters! Hope you brushed your teeth after all that candy 😉
We did indeed have the prettiest tricksters!! As for the teeth brushing, we must rely on the Tooth Fairies for keeping our teeth sparkling!! 🙂
You win the Cutest Trick or Treaters Award, Red Man. They are all adorable. I’m a little worried, though, that now Mommy will want to find a candy corn hat for me next year. 😉
Weren’t these children precious??!! Honestly, they were all adorable and too funny…the little girls who wondered about Red were too cute…yes, we fear that you will have a candy corn hat in your future Halloween costuming…:)
