...halloween...

here's an attempt to briefly summarize friday afternoon and evening... the hambrick halloween festivities..

the girls got home from school, and were excited to change into their nurse/vet/doctor scrubs for halloween.  the afternoon started out with the neighborhood parade at 4:30pm (packed), and then we headed to publix for their attempt to entertain for halloween. it was a bit weak- they only had 3 small stations at the store with activities, but the girls had fun.  what about smothering a sugar cookie with icing and then eating it isn't fun?
below is a picture of sara throwing rubber chickens into buckets at publix. the reward for success? a mystery decoder ring (aka orange plastic pumpkin ring). oooooohhh...

we headed home, ate dinner, and prepared for the adventure awaiting us. let me just say that our neighborhood was total CHAOS. i've never seen so many people out trick or treating EVER. i walked around with the girls and 2 other good friends and their boys (shout to karla and keirstin- two bff''s that have embraced me as a new friend). their boys are THE boys my girls talk about marrying one day.. check 'em out..

they (logan and jack) are absolutely adorable- too bad you can't tell by these photos.. their ninja gear disguises their cuteness!
steve and john (keirstin's hubby) stayed outside and handed out candy while the women took the babies around.  steve attempted to bribe small children by offering them 3 pieces of candy in exchange for a reese's, but no one caved.

the final pic is of the loot my girls scored.. 129 pieces each, according to anna katherine's statistics.

now if i can just have the discipline to stay away from the sugar babies and milk duds...

Our penguin made it through unscathed, but it's good to know we knew a couple of vets who could've stepped in if something had gone awry.

Yeah we made your blog!!!! That night was crazy, I'm not sure I have recovered yet. Next year the ladies are staying home to pass out candy, and the guys can chase the kids.
