It was a dark and stormy night......










Nah....not really. The weather has been great tonight for trick or treating. Though it used to be a lot more fun than it is now. But for some reason, I still get a little excited about the evening. Johnny boy used to love taking the kids trick or treating. It was one of his favorites………him and a bunch of the dad’s would take all of our kids out, cold beer in each of their pockets and I’m not sure who had more fun, the kids or the dads. They would end the night at someone’s house with more beer, maybe roasting some oysters on the grill…..a lot of fun. Then there was a rash of divorces in our neighborhood and Halloween would never be the same! But Johnny boy still enjoyed taking our kids out and they always had lots of fun. Now they are all grown up.

Our grandson Maddox is only 2 yrs old but I know when he gets older, Johnny is going to want to tag along with the trick or treating.

My dogs hate Halloween. Chrissy, the diva, believes there is something very sinister about anyone dressed in a costume or a mask and she will attack! Bucky put a mask on Sunday and walked into the den and Chrissy went after him! So it’s a real pain trying to keep the dogs away from the door.
we have had a lot of kids come by....between 7:00 and 8:00 pretty steady.

a few pictures......kitchen hutch looking all halloweeny(even though I have started getting my snowmen out and yes, I have already gotten the snowmen dishes out), table in the foyer and our favorite little monkey.....Maddox!
