The whole company dressed up to go trick-or-treating this evening. A butterfly, Woody the Cowboy, the Mad Hatter, and a Cereal Killer. Notice that N.Lo now has super-cool Toy Story boots to finish out his costume, and the body of K.Lo’s butterfly costume has been changed out and newly decorated with glitter glue and jewels. She did all of the jewels by herself, took initiative of that project from the start, insisting that we buy the stick-on jewel pack at the craft store and everything. Huh! Management’s costumes made an appearance the night before at an out-of-town party, so we simply put them on one last time, just for fun. Our company joined a big group of other companies on the street and went trick-or-treating together. All employees were ages 5 and under, so it was an especially cute crew. I wasn’t sure if N.Lo would really get the whole concept, but I guess all that training with his coworker paid off, as he was not at all shy about marching up to the door and asking for candy. He clearly knew what was at stake. All the employees were delightfully polite; we hit a handful of houses together and then met over at our neighbor’s for a quick game of Pin the Tail on the Black Cat before heading home.

At our own office, the turnout was strangely low for a Saturday night, and N.Lo, who had missed his Afternoon Break on our long car ride back to the office, was sort of (beyond) a wreck. And K.Lo was wired, though she once again enjoyed handing out candy to the few trick-or-treaters that did show up. Let’s hope that between the costumes, candy and all other excitement, the employees achieve some semblance of productivity on the Night Shift. Happy Halloween!

    and delightfully? warm.
    I hope the night shift was perfect.

    We had 9 individuals not counting the two "reservse trick or treaters" who brought us homemade tamales. Yum.

    Is it that it was a Saturday and everyone was at parties? We didn't even have any hooligans (older kids) coming by late. weird?

    It was definitely warm! The wool coat got to me after too long.

    I like this whole concept of reverse trick-or-treating! We got a small handful of late-night hooligans. I had the same thought about the parties, seemed like there was maybe a lot of that going on.

    We had...four? I think? I only answered the door once. I leave it to my roommate.

    I was going to make a FB status update about her soliciting trick-or-treaters, but decided not to :) (I think she was giving candy to the kids next door, who are too old for trick-or-treating.)

    ...they were ALL AT OUR HOUSE. Nine at night I looked out front and our yard had turned into a BLOCK PARTY. They were filling the line in the front yard, the sidewalk, beside our house, in our driveway...We stole all your trick or treaters! You can have the ones back who kicked our clowns if you really really want them though... xD LOVE the costumes!! Email me some photos of you guys and the kids dressed up pretty pretty please??
