The kids and parents have been preparing for weeks I think. Pumpkins have been carved, candy purchased and costumes created.
Here you can see them getting ready. The guy in yellow on the right is dressing up as an aging hippie surfer. He's just putting on his long wig. I thought the little guy on the left was dressed up as a cotton ball. Wrong. He ended up with a wolf mask on and a tail at the back. He was a wolf in sheep's clothing.
This morning the kids headed off to school and the only signs left were the pumpkins on the stairs and the rubber bat flying from my front porch.
