Halloween 2009

Next to Thanksgiving, Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year. It's focused on food and fun.

Since we are no longer kids at TNG, that doesn't mean we still can't focus on food and fun. Candy is still the highlight and each of us has our favorites.

For me, I can't resist Almond Joy, Milky Way Dark, and Smarties. Milk Duds, M&M's and Squirrels aren't too bad either. The best part: When you eat candy on the actual day, it's calorie free.

As adults, there is more fun in dressing up than eating candy. Today, some of our TNG talent went the distance.

Heather H. certainly did it up but didn't quite make the top 3.

Jesse R. was extremely creative and would have won first place if he only had a brain. But at least he was smart enough not to be tossed into a bonfire! Second place is well deserved!

Our first place winner, Jen B., did it up and even went the extra effort with fake eyelashes. If you saw her without the costume, you wouldn't have recognized her nor would you believe how many people wanted to buy insurance!

Alas, Halloween is about tricks and treats. As the economic situation continues to play tricks with us, at least we can celebrate this weekend with lots of treats.

Happy Friday and Happy Halloween!
