Halloween - A family affair

When my grandfather called last week and wanted to get the family together for a hayride and hotdog roast on Halloween, I told him we wouldn't dream of missing it.

We had a blast even though it rained and the hayride didn't happen.

I'm sure you can imagine how difficult it was to get the above photo. Our little ones range in age from 6 months to eight years. Daniel is the oldest of the great-grandchildren.

We had a Minnie Mouse (Sara Lynn), a scarecrow, a princess, a cowboy (Daniel - who tells me he is indeed a sheriff), and two firemen. Preciousness!

Afterwards, we went Trick-or-Treating at Gran and Papa's house. Sara Lynn needed to be the one who knocked on the door...

A humongous bag of treats awaited them.

They wasted no time with the taste testing. I'm pretty sure we'll have difficulty tucking them into bed tonight after the immense sugar high they enjoyed this evening. Sigh...

Did I mention that we moved to within walking distance of my parents? It's been so nice having them close by.

What a lovely way to do Halloween, looks like you all had fun!!! It's not such a big thing over here though the churches have been putting on a'Really Bright Party' this last couple of years.

Glad the package arrived ok, Melissa. Now some of my work is in Alabama!
