We had a wonderful time. Wendy kept saying that this was the best Halloween EVER!!! It couldn't have been because she had all of her family dress up too, or could it be? She was really excited that her daddy actually dressed up, but I can't say he was very happy about it.
He got so many little kids hollering "HEY IT'S DONALD DUCK"!!! That part was really cute. We even had our family photo taken by the Fire Fighters who were passing out candy. How funny!
The thing that happened around 10:00 pm was that Mike had turned the lights out at 9:30 pm and the doorbell rang at 10:00 pm along with a very demanding 3 Knocks behind the doorbell ringing. We all looked at each other and said hum must be a very demanding crew wanting candy. Mike said that it sounded like a more important knock than that. Sure enough he went to the door and there stood a couple of State Troopers!
Sir, does that car parked in front of you house belong to anyone here? Mike: Yes sir, that is my nieces car. Trooper: Well we just apprehended a young lady who just hit it and ran from the scene. OMG!! Can you believe it????
Well we had 3 Trooper cars out front and one Sheriff and the girls car along with a couple of others until after 11:00 pm. The girl gave her name and phone #, but not her insurance info. Come to find out she didn't have her license with her and she had been drinking with some teen friends while trick or treating..... Wait it gets better. The girl lives three houses down from us on the opposite side of the street, and her mom decided she didn't want her to give her insurance info; so she drove the short distance down and got out. Come to find out the Mom was intoxicated! They took her driving license and had her daughter drive her home; they both were ticked, and now owe my niece money to have her car repaired. Let's see Hit and Run, no license, DWI really for both. Hummmm One screwed up family if you ask me.
We have been having trouble with our cross the street neighbors for some time with their son. He happens to be friends with this girl and every other teen who was sharing a beer or two and has been causing trouble with fire works and his friends parking deliberately in front of our our drive way just daring us to hit their cars. The Troopers told us that if they continue to do so to call them and they will have them towed. It is against the law to park in front of a driveway.
Oh by the way, Lacy was headed in to get my niece a jacket and on the way in she saw a lovely fall leaf or so she thought......when she picked it up by the stem she found out that the stem was a mouse/rat tail and that it had been ran over by a car! Needless to say she RAN SCREAMING all the way into the house. She washed her hands for oh....a minute or more.
What a memorable Halloween! I hope everyone else's was not as exciting as this one was for us.
