Halloween was an enjoyable evening spent with family and friends. We went to all of the usuals aka - Grammie's, Granddad's, our cousins, aunts and uncles houses. After that we went to the community hall. Every year they have a big get together to help keep children off of the roads for safety reasons. Some get quite violent on Halloween night and light fires in the middle of the road so it is a great place for the children to go, get dressed up, get candy and play games, that way we won't let delinquents hide us in our home on that night. They got a TON of candy and now we have too much to know what to do with it all. Lucci went trick-or-treating as well with us and dressed up in a cow costume. Anne stayed home and passed out the candy to the children. Overall it was a really fun night and all of the 'older people' ;) enjoyed seeing the children all dressed up in their costumes.

Jacob had the time of his life. He was more interested in eating all of the candy than getting more at each house. Thankfully he takes his time eating because overall I think he ate one chocolate bar (mini), 2 suckers a tiny bag of chips and a few jelly beans. When we got home I hid the candy. I gave a lot of it away, gave some for the exchange students to hide in their room for school snacks and I kept out a few suckers for Jacob. Turns out they make a GREAT incentive for Jacob to use the potty. Now he knows if he uses the potty he can get a sucker. His teeth were brushed REALLY well last night lol. Once again I got to see the results of a bunch of excited children getting together. It wasn't the sugar....it was another occasion where excitement is built up before the sugary foods are even ingested. and BOY Jacob was off of the wall with excitement!
