halloween was on a saturday this year. i love it when that happens. we arrived at the bertrand's house at 5:00 with a bryan, but without a madi. she wanted to hang out with her friends this halloween. so we dropped her off at anaii's and she hung out with her and zoe all night (anaii and zoe live on the same street) trick or treating around their neighborhood.
we had tri-tip chili. jan made it. along with guacamole pumpkin vomit. we brought cornbread muffins and jude brought sugar cookies for the kids to decorate and some mini pumpkin and cherry pies.
after eating, we went trick or treating through the bertrand's neighborhood. we probably did three streets worth and max got at least a fourth of his big plastic halloween bag filled. it was me, jan, dana, deetu, kenzie, bryan, darian and max. kenzie and bryan only lasted one street (because kenzie's still on crutches) darian was walking with max to the doors because he didn't want to go alone. eventually he started accepting candy from the houses and filled all of his pockets full by the time we finished. jayce, in his clown costume, with his fake chainsaw, had stayed back home because he was sitting outside waiting for kids to come by so he could scare them a bit and give out candy.
when we got back, we decorated sugar cookies and watched the end of game four in the world series. the mets lost. :( around 10:00 we headed home, dropped bryan off and picked madi up with her pillowcase full of candy.
this year's costumes: madi was an 80's fitness chick, max was hawkeye from the avengers and kenzie was the white rabbit to bryan's magician costume.
