Every year, on our town's trick-or-treat night (which happens to be October 30th), my church does a Halloween alternative program for kids, teens and adults called Hallelujah. They have programs, skits, music, a costume contest, and they give away candy to the kids. We've done this for many years now. I think around 16 years.

Each year it is different and fun. This year was no exception.
Our youth did the "Thriller" dance. It sound quality on my camera isn't great, and sometimes the lights made the camera go out of focus, but it was so cool. I wanted to share it on here, but I can't get it to upload. If I figure it out, I will post it later.
Also, I had to share a picture of my favorite little Spider Man (my friend's baby boy, whom I adore).

And, my own costume, which has a back story. Since I was an infant, my much older brother has always referred to me as Cara-boo. I have no idea why. I'm not even sure he knows why. But, that's what he's always called me. About three years ago it suddenly occurred to me that Cara-boo and caribou sound like the same this year I dressed up as Cara-boo....complete with antlers. :P

I hope you all enjoy.

Cara-boo -- that's great! What a sweet family tradition, too.

We did the traditional run-through-the-neighborhood thing. Everyone was very tired by 8:30!!
