Halloween Excursion 2008

We had a fun halloween!!
It was the first year the kids went 'Trick or Treating'. 
In the past, we went to the 'Hallelujah Night' games and activities our church in Tulsa held.
Our Chicago church doesn't do that.

The last time I had this much fun on Halloween was when The Mommy Project and our Crew were doing our thing, back in the day.

We set out to Trick or Treat in our neighborhood. 
But got sidetracked...

Pirate Girl and Iron Man
Getting ready to go out
How much is that doggy in the window...?
In our neighborhood, store owners give out the candy. 
Check out the crowd of Trick-or-Treaters!!
We walked up to the El station & hopped a train
These are stairs at the station. Artsy!!
On the El train, on the way to 'The Loop'
Found a Garrett's Popcorn!!
(Daddy blow dried Mini Me's hair @home)
Stopped at Daley Plaza and caught 
a Halloween Event
Whole lot of flame throwing going on!
Motor Mouth as Iron Man
Sliding down some structure at Daley Plaza
Stopped by Old Navy to use their facilities
Millenium Park is getting the 
outdoor skating rink ready!!
A view of Chicago through 'The Bean'
Sears Tower is lit orange on top
Snapped this pic right before we saw...
a Pagan minister, bride and groom
Walked by Grant Park where the 
Obama Watch Party will be held
The media vans have already staked their spots

Oooops!! Sorry CBS
We heard loud bangs and turned to see 
the Navy Pier Fireworks
Mini Me looked more like a Pirate Cheerleader
when she took off the extra gear
Flirting with a guy on the El ride home
Walking home, Daddy was given a pirate hat...
Motor Mouth BEGGED us to put up decorations
This was the first time I've ever had 
Halloween decorations in my home.

A GHOST on our balcony!!
And a Jack-o-Lantern inside!
We had an awesome time. And slept well!
