Oh, Great Pumpkin, where are you?

IMG_4834As you can see, Emerson’s final costume decision landed on Lucinda the ‘Bad Witch’ (this is a ‘Sofia the First’ reference for those of you who aren’t Disney Jr. smart). She enjoyed a night of trickery and ate more than enough treats to last until next year. In honor of our annual viewing of ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,’ I’ve decided to narrate our Halloween photos using Peanuts quotes from our favorite fall cartoon…

Linus: On Halloween night, the Great Pumpkin rises from his pumpkin patch and flies through the air with his bag of toys to all the children.

Sally Brown: Do I get to go trick-or-treating with you, big brother?

Charlie Brown: Sure, Sally.

Sally Brown: Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! How do we do it?

Lucy Van Pelt: All you have to do is walk up to a house, ring the doorbell, and say “tricks or treats.”

Sally Brown: Are you sure it’s legal?

Lucy Van Pelt: Of course it’s legal.

Sally Brown: I wouldn’t want to be accused of taking part in a rumble.

Lucy Van Pelt: A person should always choose a costume which is in direct contrast to her own personality.

Linus: Never jump into a pile of leaves with a wet sucker.

Linus: [to Charlie Brown after Sally just ripped him a new one] You’ve heard of the fury of a woman scorned, haven’t you?

Charlie Brown: Yeah, I guess I have.

Linus: Well, that’s nothing compared to the fury of a woman who has been cheated out of trick-or-treats.
