Friday, Nathan and Ryan carved pumpkins and decorated the front porch for Halloween. I made a big pot of chili (an annual tradition) for Saturday night so they would have something hearty to offset all of the candy.

The weather forecast called for rain on Saturday. Thankfully, the rain did not come, and the weather was cool and dry. David went up to church to help out with a carnival while Nathan and Ryan went around the neighborhood trick or treating. Nathan dressed up as a bandit and Ryan was a rock climber. We also had some friends come by with their boys who like to go around the neighborhood with ours. Everyone had a great time.

I usually stay on the front porch and hand out candy. But, since it was quite cool outside, I decided to stay inside by the fireplace, watch football, socialize with our friends and just answer the door. The reason that I usually stay on the porch is because we have so many kids come by. We will normally have between 400-500 hundred kids. {I wish we had been warned when we bought our house} There is always a traffic jam on our street with cars, trucks and tractors pulling trailers full of hay and kids :)
