Happy Halloween

It was a quick Halloween here ~ I think mostly cause it was drizzling outside. We normally have tons of trick or treaters here. Tonight we had just under 50. They started right at dark around 5:30 and we were done by 8:00.

And also in the quick category we didn't put the decorations up until about 4:00 this afternoon

They looked pretty good in the dark. We used several little plastic pumpkin buckets and put tea lights in them. Definitely will do that again next year. It was a big hit.

And speaking of looking good, check out our neighbors' window decoration

Nate decided not to go out this year but Julz and her friends all went as cowgirls. I wasn't able to get a pic of them together but here's Julz

Sadie is still in her cone of shame ~ when anyone asked (she hung out on the porch with us) we said she was dressed up as the dog from "Up!"

But the good thing for Julz is that the kids that did go out got TONS of candy. Her bag of candy weighed in at 7 lbs!

Hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween! I'd love to hear about it!

Julz looks cute! It was raining all night here - it was rather warm (16C) but the rain was enough to keep quite a few kids home, so we only had about 75 show up - they started @ 6:30 on the dot, and were done by 8:00. All were adorable, especially the little giraffe (my across-the-street neighbour's 2 year old) who was too shy to come near me, even though he runs to me at other times, LOL. My "glow stick in a toilet paper tube with evil eyes cut out" craft didn't work very well - the glow stick had to be positioned *just so* and even the tube had to be positioned *just so* for the eyes to glow, so I'll have to work on that for next year! We don't really do a lot of decorating - I have big plans and many Pinterest pins, but always end up doing just a few simple things :D

My sister has lived in Hamilton for many years. I love driving by the purple house on my way to her house. It's amazing isn't it?
