Halloweening (the noun went as a verb)

Our spookiest minor holiday of the year is officially over.

Marked by the tell-tale sign of only tootsie rolls and dum-dums left in the bottom of the candy bowl.

The rootbeer extract controversy has been long forgotten.  Was I for or against?  I'll never tell. 

The only thing left: pictures of my darlings in their holiday splendor.  Olivia as Miss Earhart (she played the part as romatically as ever), Savannah fresh from the sarcophagus and Caleb from the Transylvanian tomb.  Ethan has been practicing "the force" all month in preparation for his night as Yoda.  He did not disappoint.
