Happy Halloween, 2016

It's finally Halloween! And, for the first time in years, I will be delivering cupcakes to the elementary school. The cupcakes are for the cake walk at the Halloween Carnival that will be held in the gym later this evening; the Cub and his fellow ASTRA members will be volunteering during the event and cupcakes are my contribution in lieu of actual physical assistance since I will be at home, handing out candy to the Trick-or-Treaters and protecting my house from toilet papering and/or egging. Kids still do that when they don't get treats, am I right?

I also feel like I need to stand watch over our jack-o-lanterns since we put so much time and effort into them and, since I don't think Hugh wants to piece them back together with toothpicks and duck tape in the event that they are smashed by hooligans (Happened once, true story).









Our efforts this year include a super-warty witch, a minion, a traditional jack-o-lantern face, and Snoopy, sleeping on a pumpkin. The Cub did an amazing job on Snoopy, and, it looks really good, despite the fact that I mistook him for a cat at first glance (the Cub immediately set me straight, I assure you). Hugh carved the jack-o-lantern face as well as the witch, and, I really flexed my pumpkin carving skills with the minion; it required less talent than you might expect.

Today, I am headed to work, in costume, for our office Halloween shenanigans, pictures to follow (possibly). In the meantime, here are a few shots of the Cub and a couple of friends from Saturday night's Zombie Prom.




I think the most terrifying thing about this is that it is the last time I will get to attend the Prom with them.
