EVERY DAY IS HALLOWEEN


Yep, so you all know that Halloween was a theme for Pete - especially when he created TON.

What you don't understand is it's been a family tradition of doing something huge for halloween every year. Since we were kids, we had halloween parties - with the entire family there. Pete's mom, Nettie sewed everything, so of course we were those kids on the block with handmade costumes -- elaborate -- colorful -- and NEVER store bought ... Nettie wouldn't allow that.

Pete taught us a few things on Halloween:

* That in order to secure the maximum amount of candy in the shortest time period was to actually have 2 costumes. One for the afternoon right after school and one for the evening.

* When Egging houses that don't give candy, it's best to remember to buy those eggs in September. Put them into your front garden (don't let mama see) and by halloween night, they will be good and stinky

* Always be something scary ... scary is sexier
