A Halloween to never forget!

Well Halloween was a busy day, first we had to wake up extra early to put make up and wigs on, then we had the Halloween Parade, then the Parties! Here are a picture of WO. She went as Shirly Temple (no wig needed),























Here is SS as Cleopatra, She loved wearing her wig!





























Then we went off to my niece’s Church about an hour away, to have dinner and then they have a huge trick or treating event with TONS of candy, and a puppet show for the kids. So we go on our way home and driving down a two lane highway, when 2 cars ahead they stopped to make a right turn, we were stopping and BAM. Someone hit us from behind! Well we pull over, WO is screaming because she was frightened, I get out and hold her while WH get out to deal with the other driver. I calmed the girls down and wrote down the license plate of the other van. WH was on the phone with the police and the other guy was out with him. Apparently he didn’t speak English because WH asked him 3 times for his name and driver’s license, and no intelligible response. Then WH asks him to pull his van closer to the side of the road because we were both a little too close to the highway. Well I guess in Spanish that means you can go now because as soon as he got in the van he took off! So now we are waiting for the police and he comes and says we can fill out a report but you will have to pay your deductable and your rates will probably go up. There was minimal damage to our van and no one was hurt, Thank God. But I am annoyed that someone can just get away with no insurance and hit someone then just take off! Well we headed home and went to 3 neighbors houses before heading in for the night. I let the girls pick out 10 candies each and then put the bag out for the switch witch, who takes the bag of candy and left the Tinker bell movie for them, they were excited! I hope next Halloween is less exciting!

OMGoodness. They were prolly illegals! I had this happen to me. It took over 18 months to get my deductible back. It felt like Christmas when I got that check in the mail though. I had written it off...
Your costumes were too cute!

Awe, how horrible! You never know about insurance though. I caused a fender bender and Progressive "forgave it"! WOO HOO! I tagged you on my site if you up to playing...

So sorry that happened. That's just awful, and I hear it happens a LOT. Glad everyone is okay, though, and glad you had a decent Halloween. I love the "Switch witch" idea. Another friend of ours does the "Great Pumpkin." Same idea. :)

Hi there, so glad to "meet" you! Even if it was forced by Deb and Jay!
Ha!

Good luck with the contest!

The switch witch WHAT???

And...you seriously got hit and then nothing? Even if they had insurance would they have paid? That's all so confusing, why the heck do we have it??!
