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!

He looks great!! I may have been a tad uneasy myself!! 👻

As I tucked my son in bed he said, "I don't want to go to sleep because when I wake up it will mean Halloween is over." He loves Halloween!

Goodnight everyone.

Good evening,

Trick or treating went well, it was drizzling the whole time, but for the first time in 3 years the kids trick or treated on Halloween. Last year we had the remnants of superstorm Sandy, that postponed it, and 2 years ago the freak October snowstorm canceled it. The kids did well, but I should have probably stayed behind because I am paying for it with my back pain again. I am going to take tomorrow off to rest my back, and call my doctor to have him check on it. I think resting it is the best thing to do rather than lifting 70lb cases for part of the day.
Watching the Bengals game now, so far they have pretty much coughed up a hairball, but they are driving. forget that just another hairball.

Happy Halloween!!!

Good night, everyone.

The weather was also terrible - gusts of wind and downpours.

Definitely different than Halloween in the past!

Bring on Christmas!
I had a conversation with my daughter earlier about how different it is now compared to when they were little. I hope you were still able to enjoy the day!

Good news! Everyone accounted for...they said that there was several kids missing, but apparently when it started people scattered and families got separated.
