A Very Harry Halloween

Happy Halloween from Harry & Ginny!

 
 

It's raining cats and dogs here, so I'm not sure there'll be much trick-or-treating in the area. Though it's not like we, as a married couple, have ever had trick-or-treaters because the two of us have always lived in an apartment. One day we'll own a house and get to enjoy the cuteness of kiddos in costume on Halloween.
 
When I was younger, my dad was pretty awesome at making our house spooky, but in very subtle ways. He'd shine a single spot light on our house, which was at the top of a big hill, and blast "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor" by Bach out of a window on repeat. And a few years ago, he programed several pumpkins to light up and "sing" along to "This is Halloween" from the Nightmare Before Christmas. He also keeps record of the number of trick-or-treaters who come by the house every year, I guess to be better prepared for candy inventory the next year. Love that man. I hope I can be just as Halloweenishly creative as him some day.
 
Tonight, our plans are to enjoy $3 burritos at Chipotle (a special treat for going there dressed in costume) and see a show at the community theater, "Black Coffee" by Agatha Christie. It's sure to be a spook-tacular evening.
 
Oh, and just FYI... next year, if we have a little one to dress up, we're going to be Ariel, Prince Eric, and Sebastian. I'll let you guess who will be who. :)

  1. Love the costumes! Love your dad's pranks! My dad has a bowl with a fake hand on the outside and a glove for your real hand on the inside so when kids reach in for candy...bwa ha ha. Love the idea for a trio costume! Hope you get to use it next year =) Enjoy those burritos! We're playing the unofficial aunt and uncle tonight and joining some friends and their kids for t/or/t.

  2. So fun how much your Dad gets into Halloween, that is great! Hope you get to dress up a little Ariel next year!!! Living in an apartment we don't get trick-or-treaters, but with IF, I think its probably better that way for now.

    1. I completely agree with you! I'm glad we don't feel tied to our home because of trick or treaters and can go out and see plays and eat delicious burritos instead. Helps us forget our worries for a while!
