Another Halloween has passed. I really thought Noah was done with the whole trick or treating thing. He is 13, almost 14, after all. But he had a couple of friends from school that decided at the last minute to go around to a few houses. He just wore all black and put on a scream mask. I told him he could go as long as he had a costume. He got quite a bit of candy. I just stayed home and passed out candy to the cute neighborhood kids. We also did a couple of fun Halloween things. We decided to paint pumpkins instead of carve them this year. It really didn't make it any less messy but it was fun to try something new. We painted a Mike and Sully from Monsters Inc. Mike turned out pretty good but Sully was hard and is barely recognizable. It was fun though. We also went to Hee Haw Farms and did the haunted hayride. We have done it the last couple of years and Noah really likes it .
