Trick or Turkey

Well, it's the day before Thanksgiving, and here I am just now posting about Halloween.  We end up driving to a neighborhood every year to trick or treat, as there is nothing in our rural area.  The neighborhood we go to is always overflowing with people like us, who drive in from the countryside.  The residents love Halloween and go all out with decorations.  They humor all us outsiders and are welcoming.  It's always one big party.  There's one house that even creates a haunted house in their garage each year.  It's a favorite of the boys.  They also love this 'working' electric chair:

 
 
This year Reid was an Oompa Loompa, Cort was Willy Wonka, and Pierce was an airline pilot.  I was so happy I didn't have to work this year, and got to take them trick or treating.
 
Now, I'm finally done with Halloween - is it time to move on to turkey?  Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving!

It would be good to enjoy the Halloween Day. Good to see many people dressed in different costume. some are frightened...

We didn't really have Halloween this year other than Debbie dressing up to go to school as a red headed witch and the kids didn't know what she was. I told her to tell them she was the Wendy's girl (would be fitting for Wendy Gap) and they would know who that was.
We are getting a turkey from Buddy's Barbecue this year, we really like their high quality barbecue so hopefully the turkey will be equal to it.

Crystal Collier said...

LOL! Yeah, that's exactly how I feel. One holiday to the next, wondering how it happened so quickly and trying to catch my breath between. Those are some awesome costumes. Were they home made?

Sounds like so much fun. I love handing out candy. The boys look awesome! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

The picture is adorable!! I bet they had a blast in the haunted house! Did any of them get really scared? Does Pierce want to be a pilot? Wishing you all a wonderful thanksgiving!

I like how their costumes aren't ones that are typical. My favorite is the Oompa Loompa.

This year we ventured out of our neighborhood a bit. We hit a few houses, but went elsewhere because for the most part we don't have sidewalks.

Looks like Halloween went well. You're good at the costume thing. My wife was , too, when we had little kids at home.
