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.

Tonight I checked my decoration and lights, before the big day tomorrow. On Halloween, it suppose to rain all day. I don’t know, if we can go to Trick-or-Treat. But we have a Plan B, in case that part falls in the water. I will spend most of the day, carving pumpkins and cooking a good Vegetable Beef Soup. Who knows, maybe I get a little fire going in the fire place.

Halloween Season (Part V) ~ (2015 – 2016)

Today is the last “Halloween Season Monday”. Since I blogged last year, I don’t need to include 2017. If you like to take a look, just click on October 2017 in my Archives list.

2015

Katelynn and Sara celebrated Halloween as a Pirate and a Witch. The neighbors were asking, if they can take the girls to “Trick-or-Treat” with them, since their girls said it would be more fun with more people. They all went to Deerfield in Plano, while Kevin and I stayed to give out candy at home. It was a quiet Halloween for sure. We had only a few kids.

In 2016, we went to quite a few events with the kids: Fall Festival at a local nursery, pumpkin farm, 5K Pumpkin Run at Joe Pool Lake, State Fair of Texas, etc. Our October was very busy.

At The Pond By The Trail

At the 1-Mile-Marker of The Colony Shoreline Trail is a pond, where ducks and turtles share the space for relaxing in the sun. It is also a good food source for the ducks, since the pond is not too deep. They can stretch their necks to get some of those kelp-like roots from the pond bottom. And for the turtlesΒ it is deep enough for a swim.

Wildlife By The Lake

This is the continuation of yesterday’s blog. Today, I’ll post photos of a mammal, birds and fishes from that nice day in October 2016.

Flutter Wings At The Shoreline Trail

Last week, The Colony Shoreline Trail got closed due to the flood waters of Lewisville Lake. So, it will take a while until I can hike the shores of the lake again. But a couple of years ago, I hiked the trail on a beautiful late October day. In Autumn, a lot of butterflies migrate south to Mexico and Central America. Many come from the northern states of the US and from Canada. In Texas our Prairie still provides plenty of flowers, and therefore the migrating insects and birds can get their fill before they will go on their long trip across the Gulf of Mexico. Here are photos of some beautiful flutter wings:
