When Kris and Jamie were small, almost all the houses in the area were decorated for Halloween and handing out treats. A quick scan of the street tonite showed only about a third of the houses lit up. Funny how neighbourhoods "age". While there are still some younger couples with kids, many in the area are our age with grown children. We used to get 75-80 kids in an evening, now its under 30 at best. Which doesn't stop us from buying enough candy for 80 kids - hahaha.
Our house is sort of "known" for having a good display at Halloween and Rick didn't disappoint! He hung the pumpkin lights outside, set up my giant inflatable pumkin (always a kid pleaser) and set out the requisite "enter at your own risk" door hanger and talking skull! We light ALL our candles in the house and just enjoy the evening handing out treats to the trick or treaters and eating more candy than we really should.....
It was nice, too, that we got a break in the weather tonite - it rained all day and looks like it will tomorrow, too, but tonite was cool and dry!
Kira, our kitten, continues to grow like a bad weed - in fact, we got "the look" from our vet last week when she was in for her shots - she's a tad toooo big. She does like to push the other cats out of the way and eat their food - oddly enough they put up with it.
