    Name: Joy

    Kiddos & Ages: Daphne 2.75, Mac 5 weeks

    What will they be for Halloween?: Daphne: who knows...it changes daily. I'm trying to get her to be a cowgirl because there are some cute boots I want to get her and I want a good excuse to buy them. Mac is going to be a pumpkin (Daphne chose it for him).

    How many trick-or-treaters do you typically get?: Hundreds. It's very expensive.

    What sort of candy do you usually pass out?: I like to get a mix of chocolate and Skittles or Starbursts or something.

    Anything else planned in October? Yes, we're going to visit my family on Thursday! I'm very excited. We haven't seen my parents since Christmas. I can't wait to introduce everyone to Mac. We're also going to a home football game at my university and tailgating with all my college buddies and their kids. I'm turning the big 3-0 on the 24th and one of my BFFs from college is flying out to celebrate with me. AND another friend is taking me to see the Dixie Chicks, Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett and Asleep at the Wheel on the 17th. Then, my MIL is coming to do trick or treating with Daphne. It's going to be a great month.

    How many trick-or-treaters do you typically get? I have no idea! We've never been home for ToTers. I think we were home one time and got 50ish?
    What sort of candy do you usually pass out?We buy the fun size candy bars-but they rarely make it to a ToTer.
    Anything else planned in October? Ava's b-day party, a friends little boys b-day party, pumpkin patches...any Halloweeny activities we can find. This has become a fun month now that we have kiddos.

    Oh my goodness, Kristen, those pictures are fabulous! When are you going to be in Tahoe? We'll be there (Nevada side) from the 6-11th...wanna take my family's portrait in the fall leaves? Seriously...if you're in the area and don't mind working while you're on your vacation...

    Name: Jackie
    Kiddos & Ages: Aiden, 11 months tomorrow!
    What will they be for Halloween? I'm trying to figure out how to make him an owl costume despite not being able to sew. I can't find any costumes here that aren't super thick which are way too hot for TX!
    How many trick-or-treaters do you typically get? Last year we got a ton and ran out of candy after an hour (had a huge bowl full).
    What sort of candy do you usually pass out? Twizzlers, starbursts, nerds, etc. Pretty much whatever I'm willing to keep around and eat myself that isn't chocolate.
    Anything else planned in October? My husband will be in and out of town this month, so playing it by ear. Might go home, might not. Might go on a family vacation, might not. lol. DS and I are joining DH on a 2 day trip to San Antonio tomorrow for his first of many TDYs (military business trips basically).

    What will they be for Halloween? bumble bee
    How many trick-or-treaters do you typically get? It's been a few years since we were home for Halloween but I would say we have gotten anywhere between 20 to 50 in the past. We even ran out of candy once or twice.
    What sort of candy do you usually pass out? Usually a mixture of fun sized candy bars.
    Anything else planned in October? My best friend is getting married on the 29th and I will be one of her bridesmaids. We are going to try to go to Great Wolf Lodge at some point but I'm not sure if it will be this month or not. Our trip to my parents house didn't go well as far as the sleeping so I'm a little apprehensive to stay away from home again.

    Here is one of her favorite places. At least this time she was actually sitting down and not standing or climbing on to the table.

    Name: Melanie

    Kiddos & Ages: Isaiah-7, Keira and Sarafina- 22 months

    What will they be for Halloween? Isaiah is going to be Dash from Mr. Incredible, Keira will be Squirt from Finding Nemo, and Sarafina will be Toulouse (I think) from the Aristocats.

    How many trick-or-treaters do you typically get? None. We live on a major road and no one wants their kids walking there for Trick-or-Treating.

    What sort of candy do you usually pass out? None.

    Anything else planned in October? We are going to Chicago to visit my parents. We plan to visit a pumpkin farm. We go there every year. My parents' friends own the farm. Isaiah loves it. I am hoping the girls love it this year. I am also hoping for sunny weather. We are also going to Zoo Boo at the Indianapolis Zoo on October 22. I cannot wait. It is so much fun!
