Holloween 2010 at Sullivan Station neighborhood

Holloween this year was a lot better than last year I would say. It was Camille's first and she wore Kyle's chicken costume from last year. Kyle was dressed up as Zimba from Lion King. Manick, Wheng, Naneng, and Chrissa were with us to experience the fun and excitement our tightly knit neighborhood has to offer on Holloween.

The house in the next block always had the greatest display of scary ghouls, music, video display, and fog. He had a ghost buster van parked in front of his house and played the Michael Jackson music repeatedly. Nice speakers. The fog machine was in full effect at his neighbor's house as well so that block was fully encased in mist. Really spooky. Here is a video of it for your delight.

We walked around the neighborhood and captured on video other great ghastly displays but have not had time to post them yet. Kyle was on my shoulders the whole time as he was scared of all the masks and displays. He'll be better next year and I think he is learning to now say "trick or treat". Just as well, because I probably could not carry him after next year.

Camille fell asleep with Manick, which is amazing as she didn't really do any walking. Grace left us to hand out candy to all the kids who knocked or rang the doorbell so she missed some of the shows in the next block. Dave's decorations were great, especially scary was the coffin which seemed to contain something moving inside. Great sound effects and great half-body in the garage.

Grace finished handing out the box of chips and all the chocolates that we bought at Shoppers DrugMart and Kyle helped finish what was left after we got back from our walk. Weather was great and wasn't as cold as last year. It was perfect time for Holloween.
