And then we waited. Little Caden and Jimmy from down the street came - they were both pirates. So cute. A few more kids came, but no Stuart. And then came the ones that made Stuart's absence OK: three beautiful little princesses. Oh, excuse me, I was corrected: they were FAIRY princesses, complete with sparkly wings. So sweet. We gave them buckets of candy, they were so cute. Maybe they'll come back next year.

No Stuart - But the Pirates & Fairy Princesses Were Out
My beloved Stuart didn't come trick or treating this year. What a huge disappointment! I feel a little bit like Puff the Magic Dragon after Jackie outgrows him. Is our neighborhood too small now? Too close to home? Too old to come with Dad? I don't know, but it put a damper on the night. The other damper was that there were only about 10 little Trick or Treaters total. We had a bit of a panic at the last minute: the orange lights on the Halloween arch shorted out! So just minutes before trick or treaters were due, LaMar and I were out in the front wrapping new orange and purple lights around the arch. (It just wouldn't do to have visitors and no spooky lights on the arch.)
