Daddy's favorite holiday! Here's the house decked out in cheesy, yet cool decorations
And the spooky, glowing skeleton creeping out of the ground
And the happy spooky floating glowing ghosts
And the glowing spider web, ooooo
And here's our little vampire all set for a night on the town
Hey, this cape is itchy
Strike a pose!
Blah! I vant to drink your blood! Isn't he ADORABLE!!?!?!?

That's my boy! Tools!
They even had a magician come and perform. He was pretty good and very kid-friendly, but Jared lost interest after the first couple tricks, oh well

Woaoaoaaaooaooa, cool Daddy, I'm all wiggly!
And here's Daddy with his groovy grim reaper costume. The mask I've had since high school, amazingly, and this year I upgraded pretty much everything else including a heavy robe with bell hood and sleeves, bone gloves, real chains (which are oh so cool when they rattle) and the piece de resistance, an authentic 19th century scythe
Oh yeah, and a little amulet thingy too, which is facing the right direction in this picture at least. Anyway, this was a super fun Halloween. Scared kids (don't worry, I was nice, mostly), people that wanted pictures with The Reaper and just watching people try to figure out if you're real or a mannekin, until you move toward them. Fun fun fun!
And now, the Daddy behind the mask

Now a shot of our jack-o-lanterns, from Cousin Ron's pumpkin patch in Wisconsin no less. Just a couple this year, but I went with a new idea, the pumpkin in a pumpkin. This one is a prisoner behind bars, with the key to sweet freedom glowing brightly nearby - so close, yet so far away.
