The One With Beggar's Night '08

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before, but in Ohio we feel we have to go against the grain and not trick-or-treat on Halloween. It is generally the Thursday before Halloween, or if Halloween is on a Thursday, then we go on Halloween. So last Thursday the 30th we bundled up the kids and my MIL and I took them out...

I got the best deal on their costumes! I had Naomi be Nemo from Finding Nemo and Parker be Squirt from Finding Nemo. I paid $5 for his costume and $8 for hers...I was out less than $20 including shipping, and I got them in August :) I got them from the Disney Outlet online. What a deal! And everyone kept saying, "Hey look, Nemo!"

Naomi kept going around saying Nemo, Nemo, Nemo. My MIL bought her a clearance Pony costume yesterday and Naomi is calling IT Nemo too ;) She apparently thinks Nemo is what you call costumes :p

Naomi had a lot of fun even though she really didn't get it. She CAN say trick or treat, but she wouldn't. She CAN say thank you but she wouldn't. ;) At only one house did she start walking backwards and wouldn't go up, thanks to the fun they had set up in their garage.

Poor Parker had had immunizations that morning so he wasn't in that great of a mood, but he was a good sport anyway. I even got him to crack a few smiles.

We only went down our street that we live on, and that's all. It took us about 45 minutes and we were all sufficiently tuckered out. We spent the second hour handing out candy with my roomate Susan, who had about 75 spooks visit her house. All in all, a great evening. Hope you enjoy the photos!

Wait until next year, that was the year my DD was running from house to house to excited she was starting mix up what she was supposed to say... lol. She'd say "Happy Treat" or "Trick or Halloween"... lol, it was the cutest. Have fun scrapping the cute photos!

Adorable! We do it on Beggar's Night in Iowa too... When we moved from California I was amazed...My neighbors had to brief me on the local tradition of telling a joke for the treat too...not just "Trick or Treat" like in Cali. Then they told me about May Day...yikes regional lore is fun
