Definitely different than Halloween in the past!

Bring on Christmas!
Sorry it didn't go as good this year. Hopefully next year will be better.

Glad you had fun tonight!!

My friends little guy was dressed like Buzz Lightyear and liked the costume because it was white. LOL
Now what am I going to do with left over chips and gummy crabby patties?

Glad you had fun too!!

Hope y'all stay safe. Canceling trick or treat would be awful! But I understand why.

Christmas Countdown - 2013

Well another successful and fun Halloween is in the books. I always get a little sad as they end because I know my little ones won't be little forever and one day they'll tell me they're too old to trick or treat. But I'll enjoy each one while they come!

Here's my son holding the candy bowl. Some kids were too afraid to come get any candy from him but he enjoyed scaring them!

I shouldn't have said cancel. They are going to do it tomorrow night. So I should have said postponed.

All of our Trick-or-Treaters this evening were in costume and all were polite.

Halloween here just took a tragic turn....a tornado hit about 25 miles from here....kids were out....

as of right now, they aren't letting anyone in or out of town...rumors are running rampant about how many people are missing....
