We picked a great neighborhood for trick or treating!  Our neighborhood was filled with children and several houses that went above and beyond with their halloween decor.  Shane had to work, so it was his first year not handing out candy.  I saved him a little to eat!  Tucker went with other teens who lived here.  I have mixed feelings about that.......Trick or Treating should be for the little ones.  Mason, Chris and I went with our friends who live across the street, The Stewart's.  Mason got a ton of yummy candy and it was fun walking with our new friends.
 Mason's Jack o'Lantern.  Everyone else thinks they are too big to carve one :(  That makes this mom very sad.
 His costume is some kind of Star Wars guy.  I think the bag said ARF Clone.  He was happy with it and that is all that matters.
 This is a house on the corner and they get really into scaring all the kids.  They had music from Friday the 13th blasting all night.  People dressed up as scary movie characters holding machete's.  Mason walked up and got pretty close and then ran away as fast as he could.  Tucker talked smack to them from the comfort of his front yard.  When they would start coming towards him he would run into the garage.....very  I'm talking pretty big but there was no way I was going anywhere near that yard!  We are chicken's and that's the way we like it!

Eli, our friend from across the street, and Mason!

I think there are only about 3 weeks left until Thanksgiving.  We are so excited to be spending it with our family in Johnson City and not all alone at a Cracker Barrell in Pensacola.  I think all of Chris' siblings will be there and most of the cousins and we are just so excited!  We truly have so, so much to be thankful for this year.
