We live in a small town. It's got a population of about 25,000 and a small city limit. This all adds up to running into neighbors and friends everywhere we go. Our weekends are filled with this: soccer games, grocery store, and the local yogurt shop. Last night, we joined the throngs of trick or treaters who cruised along one of the major residential streets. Houses decorated. Kids running like crazy. Streets actually blocked off because foot traffic is more prevalent than street traffic.
My kids got more candy than they can eat in a lifetime, and the visited the scariest house in town. Freddy Krueger even jumped out of a corn field they erected in their front yard to scare innocent trick or treaters. T2 braved the front door for a handout, but T1 stayed quietly on the sidewalk until a chain saw maniac ran wild in the street. Terrified, they said they were ready to go home.

|It was cold. Good thing I finished that scarf.|
|Dang, could he look any more un-dead?|
|It's not Halloween unless you're stuffing your face with candy|
I am so proud of the homemade costumes which fit right in with the tons of Harry Potters we saw around town. Hope you had a great Halloween too. What traditions make your town special?
