Cappy HOWLoween

Halloween has always been a special holiday in our house.  My younger sister, Jessica was a scheduled C-Section and she was supposed to be born on October 28th.  Mom told the doctor that she couldn't be "available" until after Halloween because Dad was not the type to take Lauren (who was 4 years at the time) all over the neighborhood to trick-or-treat. 

The doctor said that it was the most ridiculous thing he ever heard, but Mom stood her ground and Jessica was born on November 3rd. According to Mom, she and Lauren made the rounds for 2 hours and hit just about every house in the neighborhood --- and then some.

I think that greedy Mom just wanted all the candy. She was dressed as a pumpkin and more than filled out the costume.

November is a great month for birthdays, Ollie ~ 11/1, Lorenza ~ 11/2 and Jessica ~ 11/3 and our nephew is due sometime in November.   


These are our pumpkins.  I'm the scowling one (hehe) and Ollie is the happy face.

Here is the pièce de résistance:
Ollie and I are *Candy Corns* and HE had to tolerate the silly hat (but not for long). 

I was really annoyed that I had to wear that dopey poncho and wouldn't let Mom near me to tie the strings.

Here is a front and back view of our costumes.  It's raining today and I'm hoping that the Dog Park will be really muddy on Sunday so we don't have to parade around looking like idiots.

Happy Halloween Everyone !!!

I like your costume. You look very good. Mommy says that on Halloween we can get lots of doggie cookies. Personally, I am most happy about the cookies.

Happy Howloween to you too Cappy! You and Ollie look mighty spiffy in your costumes. Mom says she is dreading the big day because my sister, brother and I bark ALOT when the trick-or-treaters come within 50 steps of our driveway. The parents wouldn't even let us carve pumpkins this year - scrooges! Can I come to your house??? Ha ha!
