We were back home by Thursday, so the kids could be home for Halloween and be back in school. It was a warm Halloween evening. I can't remember the last time it was warm for Halloween. Normally we are bundled up with winter coats and hats and taking trick or treat breaks to warm up with some hot cocoa. This year was very different. We dressed up with Dan as Old McDonald and the kids were his farm animals. Kaylee was a little piggie, Lauren was our rooster wrangler, and Natalie was a little sheep. I wanted David to be a cow or maybe a bull, but he wouldn't go for it. He is almost 10 and that just wouldn't be cool I guess. So he went as Darth Vader and his best friend was Luke Skywalker. It was a fun night, with plenty of candy for everyone!! We were amazed at the crowds in our little town. People were everywhere and lots of home had huge displays and mini haunted houses set up in their garages and yards. It's amazing what a little heat wave will do for Halloween.
