Last year, when we lived in Texas, we had ZERO trick-or-treater's! This year, I could not even count the number. I was warned by a neighbor that there would be a good many and so I prepared by buying about 6 lbs of candy. Before the end of the night it was all gone and I had to turn off the porch light knowing that there were still kids out there making their way around the neighborhood. I prayed that there would be no tricks...there weren't. All the kids were really nice and very polite. It was really fun to stand at the door and look out at the neighborhood with the kids walking up and down the streets and the parents milling about keeping a watchful eye but chatting with each other as well. Between my three boys we had a pumpkin bucket full of candy. About 1/2 of it is gone now! I think that next year I will find a costume for me as well.
The Jedi attack the unarmed zoo keeper!
Luckily he survived, thanks to the magic of a sucker.
For some reason he decided he liked his hat that night.
Or maybe it's the magic sucker. Those things really do have a lot of power.
I am a stay at home Mom raising 3 boys with my husband of 12 years. My oldest son is 6, the middle is 6 and the baby is 3. They keep me busy and I love it! We moved from Texas to Virginia in July of 2010, where my hubby has taken a job as an Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech. I love reading, scrapbooking, crafting, cake decorating, baking, playing with my kids, listening to music and learning about my Lord and Savior. I welcome any comments as long, as they are respectful.
I read a total of 76 books in 2010 and my goal for 2011 will be 85.
11/25/11UPDATE--I didn't put into consideration that last year I added books of the bible to my list and this year I am not...I didn't keep last year's list but I am pretty sure that at least half of the 76 were just books as opposed to the Bible. So I think a new goal of mine will be to have read 50 books. I only have a month left...
