Happy Halloween

I love Halloween.  It has always been one of my very favorite days to celebrate, but I found myself very low-key for Halloween this year.  Even though my children are adults now, I still love to celebrate the day in some way with my boys, but with one of them in California visiting his wife (yes, his wife!) and the other away at university, I found myself oddly uninspired.

That said, though...I just couldn't let this day pass without sharing a few of my very favorite Halloween pictures from last Halloween of my critters.

You remember Reggie, right?  He's a really good sport.
Actually, Pete is, too.

Reggie and Pete both patiently allowed me to don them in costume. 

 Did you know that goats with wings can dance?

Kai llama made it clear she wasn't going to participate in the shenanigans, however, she did drop in for a brief photo-op, during which time she inquired whether I had lost my mind.

 Roxy, though...poor Roxy.  She just couldn't get out of participating.

She hated every second of it....and, ultimately, wound up just turning her back on all of us.  This is how I knew the photo shoot was over.  She is good at giving me clear messages like this.  Heh.
Chester and Beau, though, were still game for a picture or two.


"Trick or Treat already!  Now can we have some candy, Mom???"
