Saturday night our town was holding it's "Trunk or Treat" (cars back into the parking spaces and give out candy from the trunks) on main street. I invited some friends over and we ate pizza and chummed it up before getting in our costumes and heading out! I was soooo excited.....until we got there and I saw there was hardly any "trunks" giving out candy. It was a little rainy and dreary out, maybe that's why? The kids got about 10 pieces of candy and it was all the crappy kind....suckers and hard chewy stuff. Where were the butterfingers? The reeses cups? The chocolate bars? Nowhere....nowhere to be seen.
We invited our friends back to the house for a bonfire and some wii. We had a blast!! Despite a little rain, we had a great time sitting by the fire under our big umbrellas. The kids ran around playing together while Sammy, Me, Becky and Dustin talked and had a few drinks. More Spooky Spiked Tea for me, please! ;) At some point Sammy and Dustin took the kids inside to start playing wii so Becky and I were able to talk. It's nice to just sit back, relax and have some girl talk. I don't get the opportunity to do that often. Hang out time ended with all 4 kids up and dancing to the old school 8-tracks we were going through and listening to on the 8-track player my dad sent out to us. TOO FUNNY! After our friends left, Sammy and I put the kids to bed then stayed up late to watch Paranormal Activity. Spooky! All in all I'd say we had a pretty darn good day!
