A week of Halloween
While we missed out on going to a pumpkin patch this year because we were all sick, Logan finally recovered & was well enough to go to The Farm for the safe trick or treating festivities they have there. Gramps (my dad) & D drove down to visit for the day to see Logan & meet Carter & we thought it would be a good idea to have them come with this afternoon. They haven't seen Logan since he was just learning to walk & what better way to spend some time with him other than begging people for candy.
Gramps & D had to leave after we were finished at The Farm because they had to work tomorrow morning & it was a five hour drive back for them. Logan was just warming up to them as they were leaving. Short visits with them are perfect because D is a little odd. Funny odd, slightly crazy odd, but not malicious odd. She's easy to be with in small doses. Just to give you an idea of how weird she is, while on the hayride she exclaimed, "Look! Walnuts! Oh wait, those aren't walnuts" as we rode passed the horses. I don't think horse poop looks like walnuts, but I guess she did. So, she's crazy in the way where you tilt your head to one side with a what the hell? look on your face every time she says something.
So, trick or treating at The Farm kicks off our week of Halloween. We'll go to our playgroup dressed up in costumes, carve pumpkins a day before Halloween, then we will go to the Halloween parade & trick or treating in our neighborhood Halloween night. It's one of my favorite holidays, so I love that we get to experience it all week long!
