But then isn't that really the American Dream(tm)? Good day, and welcome to November. Here it is, the first day of Nambla...um, I mean NaBloPoMo(dammit that's a stupid acronym)and, as promised, here are some pics of last night's assault on the ancient candy mines of the mall. As others have noted, the tradition of going door to door, at least here in Florida, has all but vanished. We left a big bowl of candy on our doorstep lest any young ghosties or ghoulies be disappointed with our not-being-homeness, and nary a one was taken. (Sigh), I guess we'll have to eat all that candy ourselves. So here is a photo essay of our adventures.
Gotta love that timer on the camera. (and yes, I know using my armor is cheating. Gimme a break, I was tired) ;-)
Queen Amidala reborn.
As the night begins, the costume is complete.
The Queen and her retainer, Mom.
Ahhh! The colors!! MY EYES!!!
Maybe I'm getting sentimental, but this little bumblebee was just too cute.
As the evening wears on, the headpiece wears off.
One hour, a full candy bag, and two tired trick-or-treaters later, we head home.
So, did you do anything fun last night?
