Battling a serious sugar high

We had Captain Rex:

And Commander Cody:

And they protected their Ewok admirably.

I do believe we had the cutest Ewok in the history of Ewoks, including those hired by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg.

Do I hear any arguments?

I didn't think so.

He charmed everyone all night long.

He peeked out of that little hood with those big blue eyes.

And no one could deny him a thing.

I couldn't blame them.

We went to the same neighborhood we trick-or-treated in last year, which is only a few blocks from our house. We met up with these shady characters: Bat Girl and The Grim Reaper.

Well, OK, Bat Girl wasn't exactly SHADY.

We convened at the house of Bat Girl and The Grim Reaper with our friends The Wicked Witch and Kung Fu Panda.

Witch and Panda belong to one of my dear friends, Laura.

Laura wore a beautiful set of butterfly wings and purple antennae.

We weren't sure how long we would last out there, but as it turned out, after having terrible weather for weeks and weeks, we had a Drop Dead Gorgeous night for trick-or-treating. Clear skies, a full moon and about 55 degrees.

I didn't count how many houses we hit, but it was A LOT.

Jake was in the thick of it the entire night. He bounded up the driveways and steps with the whole rest of the crew.

He bounded back down the sidewalks with just as much gusto, ready to tackle the next house.

He wasn't too shy to ask for candy.

It was just so much fun, and as we got to the end of the route, one house was handing out free Slushies, and the house next door was giving out free hot dogs!

What a great way to end the evening! The boys are already talking about next year.

Man, I wish I'd been there, they looked wicked-cute. Do you have them on candy rationing? What is their daily candy allowance?

Rationing them just like regular sweets. One after lunch and supper if they eat a good meal. So far, they haven't complained TOO much. :)

Oh goodness. I could just eat him with a spoon. I posted pictures of our evening too. :) Glad your crew had fun.
