Halloween Fun

OH MY GOODNESS! Busy as a bee are wee! Halloween is over. Crazy CRAZY times! Jasper dressed up as a little bee this year. He was sweet as usual. I usually sit out side to pass out candy. Doorbell+blind dog = running into walls + barking in the wrong direction. I just didn't want him to face that humiliation.






Walking around in circles outside...


OK, This is getting on my nerves....





Nope, I am done... no more pictures...



We had a mini cookout Saturday evening. The weather was WONDERFUL! A few friends came over and then it was football time, wait no it was trick or treat time....Kobi left with a group of friends to go roam the neighborhood. We turned on 4 tv's in the garage. Yes, my hubby does have the ultimate man cave. 4 tv's, a pool table, dart board and a fridge. They had the OU Sooners on one tv, the OSU cowboys on another, the world series on another and even had ghost hunters on too. MANY MANY men stopped in our garage that night to catch the scores and drool over the set up.



I hope our neighbor doesn't mind me posting this. He does such a GREAT job every year on scaring the kids and being spooky. Another reason why I set outside to pass out candy... it's a wonderful show. I laughed so hard this year that at times I about wet myself. The greatest was the last group and watching the girl do a backwards summersault and she was trying to get away....



Above is his daughter giggling because she knows he is back there...
Normal looking porch - Yes? Under the plant and pumpkins on the left is actually a 5ft deep whole that our neighbor hid in for the entire night. He covered the hole with wood, then mulch, then placed the plant back on top. Looked like nothing was out of place! He also built a fake portion of the step and covered it with cement. Through this he could reach up into the bottom of the candy dish and grab whoever was getting the candy. An air tank also was his friend in the hole. He would blast the kiddos and scare them. He could see who was coming up and would try not to frighten the little ones. The adults however.... they were fair game.



There he is.... so clever as can be!
Below I loaded a small video and you will see him testing it out on one of his children.
PS - no children were harmed, well physically hurt at least *smile*

And your dog is precious in that bee costume. I gotta show that to my kids, they are gonna love that!

Laura said...

SO many things I need to say...
First od all cutest dog costume in the entire world, he is adorable.
Second, I will never NEVER tell my husband about your garage...for obvious reasons!
Third, mean mean mean trick...doesn't he know that makes some moms pee their pants!?! :)

Rayli, I would say he was down there for about 3 hours. His wife was next door with us and we were out the whole time. He did randomly get out to stretch, but only when the coast was clear.

Laura, I know it is mean... but holy cow, it was funny too. I only felt bad for the little kids... I think I may do a post about my husbands "man cave" one day.

so many things. your dog is totally cute. my husband would be SOOOO jealous of your man cave and may stalk you now (j/k) and i can't believe your neighbor went to that elaborate of a setup.

Your dog is THE CUTEST!!! (Besides my dog, of course...but my little papillion didn't dress up...so your dog was the cutest on Halloween.) :) HOnestly! *love it*

Samantha said...

That's the cutest little doggy ever! I want a Yorkie so bad. I'm waiting on a free, or semi-free one to come along :)

Your neighbor is too funny. My brother in law built a coffin, and he hid in it all night, scaring people as they came up to the door.

I'm glad you all had a fun Halloween, and kudos to the man cave for at least having Ghost Hunters on, on one of the tvs! BEST SHOW EVER!

Your dog is too cute! Love the costume! Great post! Your neighbor is funny. Great idea!

OK Chick said...

HA! I need to do that at my house. What a great idea. At my office, one of my coworkers dressed up as a monkey. It was so funny to watch him scare all the kids! I guess this is why I'm single and without kids...I mean. :)

Chell said...

Shhhhh nobody tell him he is a D - O - G ! HEHEHe. Thanks, I am going to have a hard time beating this costume next year. I am running out of things to dress him as... I think this was year #12 to dress him up! :)

Laura said...

I love your little bumble bee! Thanks for dropping by and participating in my blog hop :)
