Well..... we had a pretty successful fright night here in Portland. Between the parties and candy hunt on Mississippi Ave and late night (OK late for kiddos) trick or treating and imbibing (for the parents) in Irvington we all did pretty well. As you can see from the photos Kathe was a saucy witch and Ike was a furry pumpkin, although the pumpkin suit did not stay on too long.

Kathe and Gillian (the twin witches of Monroe St). This was taken outside of Black Wagon (our friends store) just as the madness was beginning.

Calvin and Ramona

We hit every store and restaurant on Mississippi.

Asa the tiger!

Ike assessing his loot early on.

Ike and Caleb (the chicken) comparing their candy collection.

We don't know this kid, but he made a pretty cool Headless Horseman.
Kathe & Isabelle.

Monroe St Mafia seen here. From left to right: a black widow, a ladybug fairy, Prince Caspian, Peter Pan, Ike as himself, Asa the Tiger and Kathe the Witch!
After a couple hours trick of treating on Mississippi we stopped for pizza w/ our posse and then moved on to Irvington where we hooked up with Kathe's school chums. Irvington was madness! We traveled in a big group - lots of parents and kiddos. All the houses had candy (we even went to Kathe's teacher's house) and one house even had beer, wine and grillables.
Today the kids are counting and organizing their candy.
So, how was your Halloween?
