Halloween/Fall Festival

We had such a FUN Halloween this year.  It's fun when it's on Friday!  Everyone around here goes to different neighborhoods to trick or treat or church festivals.  I want our neighborhood to be "Where's it's at!"  We have a lot of houses here and a great little nook for Trick or Treating.

This year was a trial year and I hope it gets better every year.  We had chili, and next year we will just have snacks.  There were 41 people here at the house - I did not think that many people would come. There really wasn't enough for people to eat dinner but we made it work just fine!  Then we all went trick or treating!  Everyone was so happy to see trick or treaters.  They said it's been quiet on Halloween for years.  Then after we got done trick or treating we hung out in the front yard (by a fire) and watched The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown on the fence outside.  This summer I hope to do some movies on the Lawn.  It was a great set up but COLD.

All the Trick or Treaters!

Ending the night with our FAVORITE PERSON!!  Our girls are crazy about Rey!

The church's fall festival was after Halloween.  Which I kinda loved because I'm always so tired of Halloween by the time it finally gets here.  So to me it was great to get a little more candy and play some games and dress up one more time just for fun.

The festival is always a success!  Always.  Jason of course did great on the Hayride.  This year I hit the big time when I got Noah and Hunter to run my game (the joys of having a big kid now).  My favorite thing this year was the HOMEMADE corndogs.  Heather and her team go big at the CAKE WALK.  The friends and costumes and fellowship is so fun.  Eden does not particularly like Halloween.  Everyone scared her!  She was checking over her shoulder all night.  Better luck next year with her!

My personal favorite.  The making of the corn dogs!

Eden...looking like Mary!

I love my girlfriends!

Eden struggled with all the costumes!  I sent her home with GRANNY!

Choosing the best treats!  Can't lose!

After this night Anna wants to be a face painter!

Isaac and his buddies! 

Jason's puppet this year.  Faithful with sharing the gospel with the Hayriders!

Working the fishing booth with a couple of my besties!
