Chicken Little Goes Trick-Or-Treating

Is the sky falling? Or is it me?

I’ll admit it. I didn’t have high hopes for Halloween this year. Mostly because we went all out last year (fog machine, strobe lights, flying ghosts) and every last bit of it got burned up in a big house fire earlier this year.

I kind of figured I’d take it easy this year. Which I think made the holiday a whole lot more enjoyable. Turns out, we had a great time. Hayrides, pumpkin painting/carving, all culminating in a neighborhood trick-or-treating extravaganza. There was so much fun stuff going on the kids had cause to wear their costumes at least five different times making me feel like we really got our dollar’s worth. Which wasn’t much considering we bought Henry’s costume at a secondhand store and Violet’s at Walmart.

A good time was had by all, mostly because we have such awesome friends and neighbors.

Come along, won’t you? C’mon out for a country visit as Hank The Tank Takes On Halloween.
