Name Amy
Kiddos & Ages Alyssa-almost 3, Lauren-6 mo
What will they be for Halloween? Alyssa is going to be Rapunzel, I think Lauren is going to be a monkey. A friend of mine gave me a costume but I haven't tried it on her yet. If it doesn't fit, not sure!
How many trick-or-treaters do you typically get? none, we live way out in the country
What sort of candy do you usually pass out? none, but I usually buy some sort of chocolate for us (or me!) to eat!
Anything else planned in October? um..we have a wedding on the 15th to go to...other than that nothing b/c this is DH's busy time. I'll be a farm widow for the next 2 months!
Share a picture! I actually have some uploaded this time!

This is Alyssa's new bike, its an early bday present. I figured she wouldn't get to ride it much here if we waited till her bday to give it to her.



This is the only sneek peek I have of our family pics from the other day so far!

Name Tisha
Kiddos & Ages Lyla almost 3 and Coraline 10 months
What will they be for Halloween? Lyla will be a train engineer, her choice. Cora will be baby Carlos, from the hangover. We will probably put her in the chicken costume Lyla wore, just for pictures
How many trick-or-treaters do you typically get? We only buy enough candy for 800, and then shut off our lights when it is out. This year family is bringing their candy over to hand it out. Our street is the one that always is mentioned for trick-or-treating.
What sort of candy do you usually pass out? Dh got a bunch of Skittles and starburst. Last year we let kids pick between candy and pretzels
Anything else planned in October?rented out the cute little train and are hoping for good weather for our girls birthday. http://www.emporiasertoma.org/Minitrain.htm Celebrating dh's aunt's 100th birthday, with family flying in. An uncle is turning 50, so we are going to casinos with him. The week of Lyla's birthday, we have 10 family members birthdays on my dad's side of the family. Next weekend we are doing one last camping trip.

Name Mel

Kiddos & Ages Ava Douglas almost 3 years Kayla 18 years old

What will they be for Halloween? It has to be obvious to those on FB that Ava Douglas will be Dorothy LOL She can't wait for Halloween to be over so she can wear the Dorothy dress whenever she wants. Kayla (??) not sure what she will be for Halloween if anything at all. I'm sure she'll find a party to go to

How many trick-or-treaters do you typically get? Not sure since this is our first Halloween here. But for her big trick or treating we will go to the river the Saturday before with my parents where they trick or treat and then have a Fall Festival

What sort of candy do you usually pass out? All the goodies that I love: Reese's cups, Snickers, Kit Kat

Anything else planned in October? Not really. I am going to go talk to an advisor because I'm going back to school in January so I'm going to enjoy my free time until then.

Share a picture! This is one I fell in love with from the other day. It's Ava with NO WIG on LOL! Sorry it's so big I copied from FB and I don't know how to resize it.

Okay, I can't see most of the pics (stupid work filters) but I just have to say that Kristin, I LOVE those pics of Jackson!! Oh my gosh, he has turned into such a handsome boy and there is just no toddler left in him! My favorite is the middle one where he is just staring into the camera with those beautiful eyes. Mel, also a great pic of Ava!! I love that shirt.

And I can't see the rest of the pics but I will be back on my own computer!

What sort of candy do you usually pass out? We didn't usually get trick or treaters, so we didn't ever buy candy. I'll probably grab whatever is on sale.
