Trick or Treat!

Another busy Halloween at my house. Despite the cold, damp weather the kids turned out in force. Easily 400 of them.

Of course a Jack O'lantern is mandatory. The older I get, the less worried I am about perfection and conversely, the more fun I have.

And the fun begins. Oh Boy! Candy!

2012 Oh boy! Candy!

Very quickly a line builds up on the walk in front of my house.

Soon the line extends to the end of the walkway and into the driveway. With reinforcements marching down the road. Will I have enough to fend off the marauding hordes!?

My house rule: You must pull my dragon doorknocker's tail to get candy. I am wearing my muppet costume. I can't remember whether it is Stadtler or Baldorf.

A triumphant dragon slayer conquers the door knocker and wins his candy.
