Halloween Invaders

Since this was our first Halloween in our new home, we weren't really sure what to expect.  We don't really live in a typical trick or treating neighborhood.  We kind of thought...if we carve it, they will come!  
Just before dusk we got our very first trick or treater and I was thrilled!  
I don't think the Princess was happy that a stranger was taking her picture.  One year my friend and I dressed up as a two headed clown and I remember thinking as a kid how weird it was going to a strange person's house and them grabbing their camera, I mean they didn't even know me. Well, I totally turned into that person!  

Shortly after the Princess visited, Drew called out, "We're about to get invaded!"  We prepared with a bowl full of Snickers, Reese's, and Butterfinger Crisps.  
I told the kids how excited I was because we never had trick or treaters before.  Spot the Dog (probably 5 yrs old) said, "Really?  You've never given candy before?"  Me, weird lady taking pictures and wanting to talk to every kid, "No, this is our first night doing this and I love it!" Spot the dog, "Wow!  You're really lucky then."  
Having just under 20 trick-or-treaters we are left with a bowl full of candy, lucky indeed.
