Happy Halloween!

We had a good night trick-or-treating. We visited several houses including Jake & Ella Kate's great-grandparents, Granny & Papa Neal; their grandparents, Nana & Papa James; their great aunt and uncle, Uncle William & Aunt Susan; their Papa & Nana Jane's church trunk-or-treat; our cousin Leslie's house (and Chase's but he was out of town!); and finally a visit from Mimi and Bobby at home! Wow!! We usually do trunk-or-treat at our church, but decided to skip it this year to spend more time at each house. We still came home with PLENTY of candy!! Jake was Spiderman and Ella Kate was a ladybug. We have had the ladybug costume for about a month now, but today at school, she told everyone she was going to be Cinderella (she likes her because it sounds like her name!). So......I went out at 3:30 to find her a princess costume. I did find a friend that was kind enough to let us borrow several princess dresses, but.....when I surprised her with them, she informed me that she was going to be a ladybug!!! She has refused to wear that ladybug costume for 2 weeks now!! What a moody little chick!!

Anyway, we had a great time out visiting. Granny even made us adults some chocolate chocolate-chip muffins and popcorn. Granny always had the best house to visit on Halloween because she dressed up and hid in the bushes and played her scary music! She even had spook trails! She has her devil horns on in this picture - but Jake says she is dressed up like Horny, their cow.
