Setting the scene: we walk up to a house that has a gated entrance before you get to the door. In the entrance it is decorated for Halloween, fake spider webs with fake spiders and such, There is a statue of a porcelian doll which to me kind of looked chinese. Hannah, Hayden, and Kaitlyn are up by the door treat buckets in hand getting ready to ring the bell and say the magic...give me candy (j/k)...trick or treat and I watched as the porcelian doll turned her head and Hannah flipped out. Ran to Grama crying. The funny part was just minutes before we were reminising about the house. How when we were younger the couple would have a coffin in there and the husband would be in the coffin scaring kids and the wife would be a statue of some sort standing by the door. Since then the husband has passed on but the wife continues to hold up the tradition.
Halloween this year was fun. Hannah loved wearing her costume and couldnt wait to be able to go Trick or Treating. We got to carve pumpkins at Papa and Grama's on the Sunday before. I couldnt get Hannah or Hayden to clean out their pumpkins, and Hayden only wanted to use the knife to cut. He threw a fit when I wouldnt let him. Then on Saturday we went to the church and got to enjoy some fun carnival games and also Trunk or Treat. They got to decorate "Eyeballs," shoot marshmellows out of a marshmellow gun, and they even got to practice their roping on a pretend cow. Then on Sunday we went out to Grama and Papa's house and they got to go Trick or Treating with Kaitlyn and Keith. Heidi even got to enjoy in the fun by being strapped to Grama in the baby carrier. It was fun to watch them and also to listen to them. The first house we went to the girls got their candy and then you hear Hayden saying "my turn," and of course Hannah getting scared will always be a priceless memory. Then we also got to enjoy Sheena's yummy carmel apples. Which I have to say is one of the top things I look forward to with Halloween.
