Halloween Recap

Yesterday afternoon, H & K and their sisters visited with their mom, all in costume. Right about this time we heard that Ms. Tioga had suffered a break-down, so we left to help him. The problem turned out to be the starter solenoid. When it was replaced, I took the kids home to carve jack-o-lanterns, and some of the neighbor children came over to help.

Our pumpkin lanterns came out great, and finished off our haunted front yard decorations! With our yard ready, Tracy came over and we took the kids out for a round of trick or treating.

Here are some of the ghouls that came to our door looking for tricks or treats.  There seemed to be fewer kids out this year compared to past years, especially given that Halloween fell on a Saturday.  There were also fewer homes with decorations and offering treats for the kids.  Maybe this is due to the poor economy.

Later in the evening A’s mother, step father and little brother came over and the kids went out for a second round of trick or treating!

In the morning, the kids took stock of their treats!
