no tricks, lots of treats

happy nablopomo!

halloween was a bust for us again this year. the only trick-or-treaters we had were the neighbor’s kids, so that really doesn’t count. now, we have a *huge* bowl of candy leftover, which is not so good for the whole losing weight thing. next time we move it will be to a frickin subdivision where we will get lots of frickin trick-or-treaters!

on a brighter note, the costume contest i judged last night was fun. it was a lot of fun being a “celebrity judge” (i and a reporter from the newspaper were the judges).

me judging costume contest

there were some great costumes. my favorite, though, was a girl dressed as a jockey with a horse around her waist to look like she was sitting on it. that costume was awesome. and yes, she was one of the winners. 🙂

i rushed home for gossip girl only to remember it wasn’t on last night. stupid cw and their stupid reruns.

    We live on a dirt road with only a few houses and no street lights – by six p.m. it’s usually pitch black.
    Surprisingly we don’t get any trick or treaters either.

    And Happy NaBloPoMo to you too.

    P.S. That’s a great photo of you!

    Being a celebrity judge–that much have been cool! The jockey costume is a great idea and I’m glad that girl was one of the winners. I like it when kids put in an effort because you don’t always see that these days.
