First it looked very bleak for Trick-or-Treat. But when I picked up Katelynn from school, she mentioned something about “Trunk-or-Treat” in her school gym. “… Maybe Sara would be interested in it, since it rains”, she said. Kevin went with the girls, and Katelynn’s friend to the High School. And when it stopped raining, they went Trick-or-Treating in the neighborhood. My job was to get the pizza in the oven and give out candy.
Since Luis barks too much, I had him in the backyard. But somehow he managed to open the patio door and came back in. He was in, but Lexi and the cats were out. Luis ended up in Sara’s room; Lexi came back in; Joshua spent some time in the garage; and Chewbacca kept checking out the backyard, until he got tired of getting “rained on” from the trees.

Kevin and I had the Halloween decoration up, since September 30th. The last couple of weekends we’ve got rained out, so we couldn’t finish setting the lights up. But we finally could do it today. I’m so happy the lights are done. On Halloween, we get the witch out.
After all the rain, the rest of the Halloween lights are up finally this weekend.
Since years I want one of those Halloween spooky trees. Two years ago, I bought one. It was on sale; I finally gave in. I was debating, if I should put it outside by the door entrance. But I’m little worried, that the kids will mess with it. Keeping it inside, Luis might get some ideas. After some thinking and talking to Kevin, we decided we put it up on the kitchen counter. I sat the pumpkins around it. And then, it looks like our own little pumpkin patch.
The “Spooky Tree” fitted perfectly on our kitchen counter.
