Don't Go Halloween!

I LOVE all holidays, but Halloween is one of my favorites. Justin is such a good sport about letting me deck out our house and even dresses up in costume to go out that night. I wanted to have trick or treaters so bad. We got all of six this year (six more than last year). I was doing everything I could to recruit kids to come to our house. I even resulted to standing at our door yelling "We've got lots of candy!" Our neighbors probably think I'm some perv trying to bribe kids to come to our house.
This black little kitty is the nieghbors, but it likes to visit us. I have to enjoy it since Justin hates cats. He says he's alergic (totally faking it so I don't get one).
That night we went to Georgetown. It's one of the nightlife areas of DC that has tons of outdoor shops and restaurants. On Halloween it is totally packed with adults decked out in costumes. I love to see all the creative things people come up with! Last year the prize went to a rather LARGE man who shaved his head, painted his whole body green, and looked exactly like Shrek. This year my favorite was a guy that dressed up like the man from the game Operation. Who even remembers playing that game?!
Our friends Chris and Maeve came over one night for a little pumpkin carving compitition. Sorry guys, but we owned you.

If you have not had the chance to vote today there is still time to take part in this historic election. Get out there and vote, even if you have to stand in long lines. Its worth it because the incoming leaders will be facing challenges our country has never seen and we need to make sure we elect the right people to deal with them. Take advantage of the agency we have to choose our leaders, something many in this world do not enjoy. GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
