Double the Pleasure , Double the fun

Around the sharp corner and up the long stairs
Hung three little costumes just ready to wear.
A transformer, A 50's girl, and dragon with sleeves
All waited patiently for old Hallow's Eve

The kids who would wear them, were excited too
They practised and perfected their cackles and Boos
And finally now at around 7 o' clock
The two merged together to prowl round the block

For an hour or more they took in the thick air
Reveling in each wide smile and deep stare
The candy flowed plenty, filling up there dark sacks
But the hour was late, and they had to head back.

Normally to separate costume and child
would result in behavior increasingly wild
But there was no need to put up a fight
For the Quatama Ward party was the very next night

So costume and child merged together once more
Straight to the church parking lot, they left to explore
Where trunks fully decorated awaited them there
And ward members with candy ready to share

The costumes are now folded and packed safe away
The children are happy and continue to play
We'll move on to Thanksgiving with gratitude and cheer
While Halloween sleeps quietly 'till October next year

Your kids look so cute! I have always wondered what it would be like for it to be cold on halloween. The trees look very beautiful in the background behind Chet. The only way I can get leaves like that is if I go to the craft store and buy them. lol.
