Halloween Ghouls and Gals



Here We Are!



Andi (me), Jake (Zombie) Sami



Back Seat Shot! - Heading to Union Hotel Haunted House



Sami & Jake At the Hotel's Trick or Treat

I have a chocolate hangover... Not Fun! Man! That stuff is dangerous!
We left yesterday at 5pm for our big adventure and got home at 9pm. First was the trick-or-treat - about 10 different rooms at the hotel were sponsored by various businesses that handed out candy.. Not a major killing for serious candy hogs, but perfect for us. Some of the folks were very generous with cute little prizes and tasty goodies and some of the sponsors dressed in costumes as well. My kind of folks - let's get into it! The kids also got new toothbrushes and I was impressed that they actually used them last night! What good kids..

The Haunted House was another story... Sami definitely did not like the haunted house. It was too scary for her, poor little thing! There was a gorilla in a cage, that came out and scared us. And numerous pirates that snuck up behind us.. Sami did not like the gorilla, and she was afraid all night. For the most part, a great Haunted House with the Dead Men Tell No Tales theme.. At the end they lined us up to shoot us - with water guns... Totally ruined my 1 hour makeup job! Right in the eyes! And they kept on shooting! Darn those stinkin' pirates!

After the Hotel we hooked up with some of our friends for dinner at the Haines Steak House. That was my favorite part! Good food, good drink, and good friends...

All in all, it was a wonderful night. Another one come and gone.
I've got a joke for you....
Knock Knock.
Who's There?
Boo...

Boo Hoo! Sigh. Guess I have to wait another year to get dressed up!

Wow those are great costumes. Ya'll look so adorable but dang look at the slasher details on the Zombie man!!! You and Sami are so sweet together. Another cool mom moment. I love how this all came together at the end of the even, too.

How come you didn't post the picture with you after the being gunned down by water shots? I wanted to see that one!
