As a family, we always looked forward to Halloween. Picking out costumes, carving the pumpkin, attending Trunk R Treat events and taking the kids around the neighborhood to trick or treat.
Now that our girls have grown up and are doing their own thing, Tracy and I are left to carve the pumpkin and prepare for the big day. I have to say that our pumpkin does not look as good as the pumpkins that our daughters carved in prior years and I sure miss going house to house in the neighborhood with the girls.

Along with our situation changing, our neighborhood is changing as well. As the girls were growing up, we would typically have 75-100 trick or treaters and each year, that number has been reduced significantly.

|Very Few Kids To Greet :(|
So after a lackluster night, I asked Tracy to take the candy to work, because I knew that it would start calling to me as soon as I arrived home from work and I certainly don't need those extra calories.
So we will take down the decorations tonight, throw the wilting pumpkin in the garbage and get ready for our second camping trip of the season this weekend. That should certainly help to pull us out of our funk for sure.
I hope your Halloween night was safe and happy and thanks for the visit!
