Halloween at our house is always fun. For a few years, we had not been around when Halloween arrived at our house.
However, last year we were. We had purchased some candy, anticipating that we would only see a few “Trick or Treaters”. The time had arrived and no one came. We sat in the living room near the front door reading a book or two. Then the doorbell rang. We opened the door with candy in hand. What we saw surprised us. There must have been at least ten kids, from ages 5 to 10, all dressed up and calling out “Treat or Trick”. We had expected one or two but no quite that many at one time. They were just so cute.
The doorbell kept on ringing for the next 3 hours. We almost ran out of candy. It was a good thing we had bought a big bag of candy.
It had always been our custom to count what was left in the bag of candy to determine how many kids had come to our door for “Trick or Treat”. It wasn’t very hard because there was only a few pieces left. We were amazed. We had over 110 kids.
This year, my neighbor had been asking if we were decorating for Halloween. We hadn’t considered it until she asked. So we thought, why not and so we hunted down our Halloween decorations, got them out and put them up.
Halloween At Our House
So here is photo journal of Halloween at our my house this year.
First we put the witch on our door and then other fun scary things are placed around outside.
Of course we can’t forget our pumpkins. They will be lit the night of Halloween.
I love the ease of installing these blowup guys. They are so just plain fun.
Then we put out some signs that light up. These signs are just so cute and they add that extra sparkle.
And then we’re done. Our neighbors are loving it. We expect we will have a lot of kids this year for “Trick or Treat and we are ready… 🙂
What about you? What are your plans for All Hallows Eve?
Happy Halloween, from our house to yours.
Life’s journey continues…
