Halloween's always been one of my favourite days of the year. All the fun decorating the house, wearing costumes, putting together little treats for all the neighbourhood kiddies...

This year is our first year celebrating Halloween as husband and wife. This is our second Halloween together and around this time last year, Hubby was thinking of ways to propose :)

Last year, hubby only had two trick or treaters (our two nieces!), as houses are quite far from each other. It's not like in the city where houses are so close and kids can walk from house to house. Our township has a Halloween party for the kids at the community hall, but parents bring their kids to houses of friends and family as well.
This year, we had a record of EIGHT trick or treaters!! In Toronto, I always had around 300 kids to get Halloween treats for. I was so excited when I saw those eight little cuties this year! Of course, two were our nieces, but the other six kids were our friends' kids.

Hubby and I dressed up this year. I did our make-up. Yes, Hubby actually let me put make-up on him! He was a zombie and a scary one too! He had (fake) skin peeling from his face and crusty dried blood all over his mouth and chin. I was a creepy cat. Too bad we didn't take any pics of our scary faces! The kids were terrified and giggled after the initial shock.

Our house was lit by candle light and a sign on our front door said "Welcome, children! Enter at your own risk! There's a basket of candy on the chair. Help yourself." The kids entered our haunted house, to see lots of candles lit and and there was opera playing in the background. The music probably creeped them out! I don't think they've ever heard opera before! LOL! As the kids entered the house, I crept up behind them and said, "MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEOWWWW!!" and they all jumped! Then I guided them to the basket of candy, and as they reached in to pick their treats, Hubby jumped out from behind the arm chair. He scared them silly. The poor kids! It was a fun night and they all enjoyed their tour through the scary house. Now we're known as the crazy couple, since none of the other couples in our township got all dressed up and made a haunted house. Unfortunately, this means we're going to have to out-do ourselves next year!

I love the way you spell favourite. Happy Halloween, belated.

LOL! I actually spell it 'favorite', but for some reason felt like spelling it with a 'u' the other day! My teachers always bugged me about bouncing between 'favorite' and 'favourite' because I just alternated whenever I felt like it! I know...the rule is "choose one and stick to it" Did True have a good Halloween???
