I don't know about ya'll, but when I was a kid all I got for Halloween was some some hard candy and gum. This year my kiddos ended up with all sorts of toys, clothes, candy (some homemade), and money! My, how things have changed. Ty had so much fun trick-or-treating, even at Aunt Michelle's haunted house. He never wanted to stay long at one place though, because he was itching to move on to the next stop. Then there was the fall festival at church last night. Ty was so dirty by the end of the evening. At one point I saw him walking around that muddy, gravel parking lot with no shoes or socks. Ouch and Yuck! I think he spent most of the night jumping and playing in the blow-up bounce houses. He looks forward to those all year. I have to say I'm glad the festival is over now. One more thing crossed off my ever-increasing to-do list.
