You saw it here first.

It’s August 1st. And the CVS downtown has Halloween Candy out on the shelves…

August 1st. Please stop rushing my summer. Thank you.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽƒโค๏ธ

Goodnight moon.

After trick-or-treating was over, we took Oscar on a walk…

And there was a pretty big Halloween moon over Northside…

Spooky.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ”โค๏ธ

Trick-or-treat!

Tonight, we handed out candy to about 95-ish trick-or-treaters. It was down a little bit from last year’s Halloween when we had well over 100 little ghosts and ghouls visit our house. Luckily, we bought a bunch of candy to hand out…

And when we were done, we onlyย had a handful of candy leftover. But don’t worry, we had some extra candy stashed away for us to enjoy afterward. We hope everyone had a happy and safe Halloween with got lots of candy!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿฌโค๏ธ

ps. And Oscar didn’t have to wear either one of his Halloween costumes this year.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

We hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽƒโค๏ธ

Seen and noted.

I saw this guy at the grocery this afternoon…

He reminded me of a Halloween Milan. I was going to get him but he was shockingly $35 and that seemed a bit much to me for what it is. I’ll try to stop back after Halloween and see if he isn’t on holiday clearance.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿถโค๏ธ

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, part three! Last Halloween, we dressed Oscar up in his fun little Halloween shirt, and he was so mad all day. He really doesn’t like when we put outfits on him. So we didn’t dress Oscar up for Halloween this year even thought he looked so cute in his shirt and in his dinosaur costume he looksย even cuter

At work, we had a Halloween pumpkin painting contest…

Here’s the pumpkin I painted…

My painted pumpkinย came in second place, and I won this huge thing of jelly beans

This evening, we had over 100 trick-or-treaters during our first Halloween at our new house. We emptied our candy bowl twice, and at the end of the night this was all the candy we have left tonight…

It was a pretty fun Halloween.ย ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ‘ปย ๐Ÿ™‚

Halloween, part two.

Halloween, part two. Tonight, we went to a Halloween house party with Cleve and Alyssa out in the Cincinnati suburb of Fairfield…

The theme of the party was heroes and villians. Genifer went as Batgirl and I went as John McClane from Die Hard. Welcome to the party, pal

Cleve was Luke Cage and Alyssa was Poison Ivy. It started to get a bit chilly later in the evening and I had to put on another shirt…

It was a pretty fun party. We crashed at Cleve and Alyssa’s house in Liberty Township afterwards. In the morning, all of us watched the Bengals and Redskins tie their football game in London. Afterwards, everyone on Twitter made the same exact joke. And then, we headed for home. It’s always fun to hang out with Cleve and Alyssa. ๐Ÿ™‚

Halloween, part one.

We had a little family get together this eveningย for Halloween. Genifer was a mermaid and I was Michigan’s football head coach, Jim Harbaugh…

It was a really fun evening. And our place looked pretty festive for the occasion too. ๐Ÿ™‚
