Yesterday was a great day! Wee One had a blast Trick or Treating. He looked so cute in his 'kitty' costume. He called himself a 'puma' because he is a Dora The Explorer fan. I like the fact that he can count to 8 in Spanish but I realy want him to count to 8 in English...okay, that is a whole other post/rant.

We could not have had better weather for Trick or Treat. It was a gorgeous warm and sunny day, the evening did not even get chilly until after dark. When I was a kid Trick or Treating in N.MI, temperatures over 32 degrees and no snow was perfect weather. Many Halloweens I remember Trick or Treating in my winter coat, which always covered the best parts of my costumes.

Wee One made a haul, especially at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We only went to about 1/3 of the houses in our tiny community but he still filled 2 huge bags. Since our itty bitty town doesnt have a whole lot of trick or treaters, the kind citizens tend to give out huge handfuls of candy, good candy too. Not icky, stale, cheap, dollar store stuff either........were talking Reese Cups, M&M's, Sweetarts (my fave) stuff like that....Son #1 was a big helper! He walked Wee One to many doors. After about 45 minutes, he wanted to go over to his friend's Grandma's house and scare the other Trick or Treaters (they had a graveyard, prison, scary forest set up) I let him stay there until 8:30 (they had a small party afterwards) then I picked him up.

Wee One and I hit Auntie Alicias, Auntie S's, and G's. All 3 go all out for every Holiday decorating and Halloween was especially good this year at all 3 houses.

The BBQ/Roping was a huge party. A big success for the hosts. We did not stay long at all, barely an hour. I would have loved to have partied and roped long into the night but Trick or Treat took precedent over my fun.


If your wondering why our pumpkin was not carved.....long story there. Anyhow, I didnt trust my hurried self the last couple of days to be carving anything up......

Awwwww!!! Wee One is so adorable!!! :)

I don't do carving pumkins either, the last time I tried with those special carving kits, got so frustrated (they don't work to well) went in and got a sharp kitchen knife and well almost sliced my thumb off, so I don't blame you there.

I can remember here in Kansas when I was a kid that we always had to trick or treat in about 1/2 inch snow or freezing ran, and I wouldn't go with a coat I wasn't gonna ruin my costumes!! LOL.

I don't do trick or treaters, I have 15 stairs I have to go up and down each time the door bell rings, and I don't want the little ones going up the stairs to get the candy, as I'm afraid that the 16/17 year olds will push them down. Yes, we get those "big" kids around here. Damn hollegans (sp?)

I'm glad you had had a fun night:) Me I'm in pain, but that's another post :)
