Halloween 2016!

There are many reasons I love my little town. So many things that make it special, but for me, Halloween is by far the best night here. Once again, ghosts, witches, monster, animals, princesses, super heroes, and more took over the streets and transformed this little town into a creepy, beautiful, magical, slightly twisted, perfect Halloween.

We wandered through the streets running into friends, receiving lots of candy from our generous neighbors, got a bit scared at times, and had fun.

So here is our night, in pictures!











That one neighbor, who takes Halloween even more seriously than I do....

Halloween 2015!


Halloween is taken seriously in my town. We have a neigbor who grows giant pumpkins, another neighbor who puts on one of the most elaborate Halloween displays and Main Street is filled with homes that all take Halloween very seriously.


It is one of my favorite nights of the year so we ventured out to see it all. We trick or treated. We saw friends. We saw amazing costumes. We saw zombies. We saw presidential hopefuls.




Even Batman came by in the Batmobile to join in all the Halloween fun!


Our last stop of the night....the Halloween House!
