We only got in about an hour of trick or treating this year before getting soaked! It rained all day long Saturday until about 2 hours before it got dark...when we started out it was dry and the skies were clear but it didn't stay that way for long. We got through about 7 houses before it started sprinkling but kept on because it wasn't anything major....YET. I had left the umbrella at the house since it wasn't raining and the skies looked clear and that was my big mistake! As we got further away the sprinkling became alittle heavier house by house. We got to the end of the street when it started pouring down rain. We walked about 1/2 a mile back home in the downpour and got soaking wet. By the time we got back home everyone and everything was drenched...as we emptied the kids buckets there was about 1/2 inch of water in each one...made for alot of the candy getting thrown out. Interesting Halloween was had by all here in the South. The kids had fun though..they were alittle disappointed that they didn't get more candy but in the end we parents thought they had enough....good side is we won't have candy around our house for another month...my waistline is thankful for that.

Allie and her Daddy
This is a local house near us that went all out decorating for Halloween. He's apparently a lawyer around town and I have never seen anything like this before. He has a full size plane in his front yard and a hearse with a real coffin. Crazy stuff if you ask me!!!!! He had even more than this but I didn't want to get too gory here...some of it was really creepy!
Also in case you haven't noticed I got a new look. I won a blog makeover from Kelly over at Two kids a Minivan and Alot of Love and I just love it! She was awesome to work with and made sure I was completely happy with everything. I never even saw the stuff before she started...I just gave her an idea of colors and off she went. You did a fabulous job Kelly! Thank you so much!!!!!!! If any of you are in the market for a blog makeover contact her and see what she can do for you...she rocks!
