Each year I try to go to my daughter's in the San Diego area. I think it must be the Halloween capital of the world! This is their house - the decorating starts the end of September.
The day before Halloween there was a pumpkin carving party. There were cannoli to eat -
And some black cookies that Jonathan really liked.
The finished product - a howling wolf and a spider web.
Finally, the big day arrived - Mara, the scary vampiress, and Jonathan, the very happy dragon, were ready to go.
Mara even had her nails done appropriately.
Their house lit up.
After trick-or-treating, we all went over to the in-laws house, where we visit the real Halloween capital of the world, complete with a fullsize Halloween tree -
And a Halloween stocking, along with lots of other decorations.
The kids were exhausted from trick-or-treating, so they decided to stay in and hand out goodies. They were supposed to give each trick-or-treater 2 pieces of candy, but when Jonathan saw a really cute girl, he said, "I'm going to give this one 3 pieces."
