Halloween in brief

Okay, we confess that we totally lifted this idea from over here, but The Alpha was pretty pleased at how his first attempt at creepy candy apples turned out:

Sticks collected from the yard (and washed, yes) are way better than the ones that belong in popsicles.

Speaking of the yard:

And, the zombie gravedigger was such a hit in '08, he came back again this year:

In addition to trick-or-treaters, several friends came, and it was good seeing them all. It was also good to have their help hauling the extremely heavy wrought-iron fencing around to the backyard after the evening's festivities were over.

There are other pics, too, but it's time for me to get ready for bed. So there.

Those apples are my favorite. I especially like the sticks and the dark ones.
