By popular acclaim, Pepa has donned her Devil outfit just for you as a special Halloween treat! She'll be greeting the kids in her special suit tonight, wagging and guiding them to the big cauldron of candy and toys we have prepared for them. You'll also see Andy here, in his bumblebee outfit (well, it's really Pepa's but she is loaning it to him for the night), though he pulled off the antennae before I got this picture.
Rolly and Lacey were not exactly hiding when I took these, but they were having nothing to do with the costumes! Maybe we'll yet get them to keep something on and I'll post it here later?
That's it for now, as I have to get going and get my regalia on before the trick or treaters start arriving at 6:00 ... Des Moines has a weird tradition for trick or treating ... not only do the kids have to tell a joke to get a treat (and yes, we hear the same old groaners every year that they publish in the DM Register), but they are only allowed to go house to house for a mere two hours! We think that sucks, because we remember going for hours and coming home with huge bags of candy ... so we're extremely generous since they get so little time to beg.
Come back later for pics of the humans in their costumes, and more shots of the decorations ... I'll keep posting more later and throughout tomorrow, so check back often!
And, as you can see in the last shot, Pepa had to head back in to continue her preparations for the Devil Dog's big night!
