All Hallow's Eve

Today's Halloween, or as some say, Samhain, and believe me, that second one is pronounced weird. But what do you expect from a bunch of witches?

Holy crap. I shouldn't have said that. I might get turned into a newt! (a newt, you say?)

Kim decided to visit for the weekend but it was a last minute decision. Since she thought she'd be at her house, Kim bought a bunch of candy---and of course I bought a bunch too. Together we have 16 pounds of candy!l All in nice little pieces. (see picture for details)

Now we just have to decide if we should turn the outside lights on tonight and share this bounty with little ghouls and goblins or just have a sordid candy fueled frenzy of sugar consumption. *burp* Tough choice, huh?

UPDATE: Only had 14 kids come by. Even giving out a handful of candy to each one we didn't finish off even the first bag. Lots and lots of candy left over. And while Kim and I were sitting out on the porch reading, waiting for kids to come by, we were swarmed with these weird looking beetles. They were attracted by the porch lights and would keep flying into the walls and fixtures, knocking themselves out. By the time Kim and I went back inside there were dozens of these beetles on the chairs and floor, some crawling, some upside down and not moving. Bizarre.

We only had 10 trick-or-treaters! And not one single one said "Trick or Treat!" Only the moms said it.

We had about 100 visitors -- not bad considering it was raining and we quit earlier than usual to watch the rain delay of the World Series. LOL.

I don't know about those beetles, but we had swarms of ladybugs about a week ago. I'm not sure where they came from -- they don't migrate, do they? -- but they were everywhere in great numbers for about 3 days. Now, that was bizarre!
