Hope you had a Happy Halloween! Ours was extra happy because it wasn’t rained-out! For the entire week before the weather forecast was for heavy rain! Every day we would check to see if there was any change but all we saw was rain, rain, rain. Rachael held out hope and bought a lot of really great stuff to give out. We have a reputation as the coolest house in the neighborhood and she was determined to be ready to defend our title! In addition to candy, we also give out toys and trinkets, like Play doh, light-up rings and (something new this year) Halloween-themed rubber ducks! The night before, our trays of treats were filled and waiting by the door. We went to sleep to the sound of the rain tapping on the windows—but we still held out a tiny bit of hope. Halloween morning looked just as they had predicted, but by the afternoon the rain stopped and the cloudy sky brightened a bit—We were back in business and we enjoyed watching the excited faces of all of the kids who came to our door. We were happy to spoil them with lots of treats. We honestly don’t know who had a better time!
