Happy Halloween!!!

We spent our first Halloween at our new house, passing out candy to the kids in our neighborhood. We bought 10-15 bags of candy, anticipating a large number of children. It was beyond any expectation we could have ever had. By 7:30pm, we already had about 75 kids. By about 8:00pm, we had close to 200 kids and realized we were going to completely run out of candy. I quickly went for a candy run at the grocery store (buying another 10 bags) and came home to find that Mr. Howard only had ONE piece of candy left.

Our neighbors told us that families drive to our neighborhood for the trick-or-treating and explained that every year more and more families come! It was so nice to meet all our neighbors and their kids and we both had soooo much fun!!! We can't wait to take our own kids trick-or-treating some day soon.
