For the past few years I've been loading up the kids and taking them to a friend's house for supper and trick-or treating. This year our area celebrated on Saturday and we did thing a little differently.
The boys dressed up for trick or treating...
and the girls dressed up and walked down the road with us. (They could have walked the boys down the road, but no, we had to tag along too.)
Even though the girls didn't trick or treat, only standing at the side of the road with us, some kid started yelling at them, "Hey, you girls! You're too old to trick or treat! It's against the law!" After that, they went back to the house and gave out candy.
Then, the girls came upon the "brillant" idea to visit the "Forest of Fear" and "The Voodoo Bayou." Since my daughter had nothing to wear, my friend's hubby loaned my daughter his camouflage clothing. She went from princess to redneck in less than one minute!
The transformation is complete...
Obviously, one must blend into the "Forest of Fear." I had always said my daughter could argue with a stop sign, but I had never realized she could argue with a machete wielding zombie. I guess I really don't have anything to worry about when she leaves for college!
