It rained (hard) all day long yesterday and the forecast predicted a 75% chance of rain all evening, yet somehow, just as we started to walk out the door to go trick-or-treating, the clouds broke and the sun peeked out and there wasn't a drop of rain the rest of the night...
Yans was a 50's girl.
In fact, she wore the same costume that Courtney Lee wore on Halloween when she was six. (And some of you may remember that Annie wore those cat-eye glasses of Courtney's non-stop for about six months until sadly, she lost them. A few shots of those here, here, here, here, here and here. Thankfully, I found a replacement on Ebay a few weeks ago.)
Courtney Lee was a rock-star.
And Coley was some Link from Zelda (but much to his dismay, everyone thought he was an elf, or a leprechaun, or Robin Hood.)
Within minutes of getting out of the truck, Josh Downs had began chucking acorns at all of us. (This continued throughout the evening and resulted in tears on two occasions and brown stains on the backs of everyone's clothing.)
We went to the same neighborhood we always go to. (Josh found it a few years back and we've been going there ever since because I'm in love with the tall trees and the old houses and because usually, we're some of the only trick-or-treaters in the neighborhood.)
I totally staged that last shot. (And I made them walk up and down the alley twice to make sure I nailed it.)
They kids knock on the door of that house every single year and not once has anyone answered.
Still throwing acorns.
That was an acorn to the back of Courtney Lee's head (and instead of consoling her, he stole her candy.)
That was Courtney Lee going to reclaim her candy.
That's her dad running away with her candy.
And that's Cole giving Josh Downs a taste of his own acorns.
Next, he resorted to apples.
