Halloween 2011

Yesterday, we woke up to a cloudy, rainy day.  While our crops were loving the rain, we were a bit concerned that if the rain continued throughout the day, it would ruin a lot of Halloween and Fall Festival activities.  Thankfully, the rain stopped by the afternoon and the sun shone brilliantly!

Our church hosted a Fall Festival for anyone in the community who wanted to join in on the fun...


  There was a bounce house...


food...


a spooky house...


and LOTS of candy for the kids!


even the adults helped celebrate...


and my dear, sweet Country Boy was a pirate, arrgh!  (I was dressed as a pirate as well, but thankfully, I was behind the camera!)


Tons of fun was had by all till the sun went down...


Afterwards, Country Boy and I headed over to our local ice cream shoppe for Trunk or Treat and a kids costume contest.  Prizes were awarded for the best decorated car.  In first place...


Very creative!  He won $100 worth of ice cream from the shoppe!  Yumm!

Kids were hesitant to reach in and grab some candy...


another trunk...


Unfortunately, my camera battery died after this shot so I was not able to get any photos of the kids costume contest.  There were some really great costumes too!

What did you do for Halloween?

Till next time,

LOL I would have NEVER recognized CB!! Wish I could have seen you in costume! For what it was worth, the pups and I stayed barricaded in the computer room with all the lights off since we were home alone. :( A very quiet Halloween at the Shutta' house.
