Home Up


October 31st, 2013              

    For the first time since 2004, we did not go to Dwayne & Erica's house for our Halloween festivities. Their recent move to the sunny, warm weather of Florida (I'm so jealous!) necessitated our finding of a new trick-or-treating location for 2013. We wound up getting an invite from some of our friends to join them in their subdivision in town, so we happily accepted. We arrived at their home shortly after 5:00pm, where we ate pizza for dinner before getting the kids costumes on. Before we knew it, the time had come to head out on the candy hunting expedition! Samantha wound up going off on her own with two of her friends from school, and I didn't even get a picture of her in her homemade bacon costume! Tyler, Drew, and Jay stayed with the group, but unfortunately the group spread out quiet a bit throughout the night. In addition to kids being everywhere (at least each group had an adult or two walking with them... it wasn't as if we let them roam randomly all over), the weather was highly uncooperative today - it rained nonstop the entire day, and the closest we got to a break in the rain was a steady mist falling from the sky. The kids were mostly undeterred through, and they managed to hit virtually every house in the subdivision. In fact, Jayden and her friend Jessica were the last two of our group of trick-or-treaters to return home! Hitting all of those houses also meant that they got lots of candy too! All in all, everyone had a great time, but we sure did miss going out with our family! Miss you guys!

Halloween Trick-Or-Treating

Here is the group of trick-or-treaters lined up before heading out for the night. Tyler was a gumball machine (I think... nobody was really certain what his last second costume was supposed to be). Jayden is barely visible, but she was Rapunzel from the movie "Tangled". Drew was a police officer, and he is attempting to club his military counterpart in this photo.

This was supposed to be the kids silly photo, but as you can tell only the younger ones wanted to participate in that fun photo.

Here are the kids sorting and trading their candy after returning to the home base for the evening.
