Halloween Chez Phelps

It was a mad scramble to get organized and out for trick or treat so somehow we did not get a proper photo of everyone.  After much mind-changing, Lyra finally decided she wanted to be a scary witch and she IS! Will did her make up for her.  Tehan and I were Queen Elizabeth and Queen Bee.  Eva was Katniss from the Hunger Games and actually was recognized out on the street by girls in her general age group.  Will was a Shrunken Head Seller/Witch Doctor.  He was indignant that a couple of people told him he was too old to be out trick-or-treating.  There were girls as old as or older than he out there and no one was complaining, but I think if you're a boy that it just plain scary for someone to see you at the door.  Poor Will!

We went to Lee Street as usual.  People ran out of candy very quickly.  One family I know had 25 pounds of candy and it was all gone by 8:15.  There was much discussion and planning on the neighborhood listservs and I think there were more people out earlier than in previous years.  Can't say I am complaining though....I hate when the kids come back with a ton of candy; Eva and Lyra can't have half of it anyway.  They all had a very manageable load and it will be gone soon. In fact, Lyra pretty much ate all of her last night.
