Halloween Coincidence? Happiness and Regret...

Halloween is over, but the candy lingers on. Yeah, only because I bought the stuff that wouldn’t tempt me in a million years. You know, Baby Ruth, Butterfingers—the stuff with nuts that I would rather starve than eat. Believe me, if there were a Hershey Bar in the house, I’d have sticky, gooey, tell-tale chocolate stains on my fingers.

Anyhoo, here are a couple of photos of what our grandchildren did on Halloween, and you should know that these costumes were conceived independently, and it’s purely coincidence that the three and a half-year old in Sacramento was a road, while his two and a half-year old cousin in Boston was Lightning McQueen! As for the 4-month old, well, he’s little more than a prop for his dad, and if you’ve seen the movie “The Hangover”, you’ll recognize Alan and Carlos!

Kaitlyn (a.k.a. Lightning McQueen) and her mom!

Zachary as the happiest road ever!
Baby Sam (a.k.a. The Tank) with his daddy!
I hope your Halloween was equally sweet and memorable!  But I should have bought Hershey Bars...


  1. Those are great costumes! Love it. Oh, and I hear you about the candy. I bought crap I don't like, but now I'm wishing I had some of the good stuff.

  2. Great pics! I'm not sure I'd have your willpower with the candy...

  3. The hangover costume is the funniest! It really looks like the guy from the movie. We'd make an awesome trick or treating team because I loves me some Snickers and Hersheys with almonds. You can keep all the plain old chocolate that you want. xo
