Wanna know who these be-costumed beauties are? Read on!
- Susan took the girls to a residential facility for elderly people, who were handing out candy to treat-or-treaters today.
- Then they went to the Prairie Hills Mall, whose businesses were giving out candy to kids in costumes.
- Then they went to visit our friend Monica in her apartment, and she gave them candy, too.
- Then they went to Treat Street at the Grand Dakota Lodge, at which local businesses had rented out and decorated the ballrooms and a series of hotel rooms. As trick-or-treaters moved from spooky room to spooky room, people in costumes stood inside to hand out candy and/or to jump out from behind doorways or scream or act out an eerie scene or otherwise scare the children. Hillary got scared when she spotted a man in a gorilla suit, so she screamed . . . which caused him to scream because he hadn't noticed her there, and her scream "freaked him out" (according to Hillary)!
- Then Susan took the girls trick-or-treating at family members' houses: Dale and Mary's, Terry and Audrey's, and Pat and Kathy's.
- Finally, they came home, and Susan got situated to dole out candy to trick-or-treaters at our house while the girls (and one of Abigail's friends) walked around our neighborhood to trick-or-treat.
A little blurry, perhaps, but you get the idea.
Now, back to the girls' costumes:

After we had eaten supper and the girls had gone to bed, I had a little Halloween treat of my own: watching the premiere of the AMC television series The Walking Dead, a show about survivors of a zombie epidemic in America. The show is off to a great start with a terrific pilot, and it was an excellent and appropriate way to "celebrate" Halloween. Boo!
