We got ready for our party on Halloween night... can you guess who I was? Are you more than just a little nervous?
The little children weren't terribly frightened of me... but they didn't like me, either. One little trick o' treater exclaimed, "I have a puppy at home, don't you come over!"

... and some have a flair for the theatric and love posing as zombie brides:
Of the entire class, only ONE boy arrived. Trust me, we were cool with that. One boy + all the girls = no broken dishes or decorations.
