The Halloween festivities began the weekend before the holiday with a huge, family-friendly party at a friend's house out in the country. If I had to guess, I'd say there were close to 150 costumed adults and children celebrating that evening, and all four of us had a great time. My pics from the party won't win any awards, but at least we paused long enough to capture a couple of fun moments.

|A LOT of trouble.|
|Silly faces, just for fun.|
|That's seven dozen cupcakes.|
|Trunk-or-Treat at Hallie's preschool was moved inside and |
became regular trick-or-treating because of rain.
|This girl was super excited about her cupcake.|
|Will's teacher had him climb up on one of the computer |
desks so that she could take his picture with her skeleton.

between me, my dad, and my sister) begin!

We certainly have a warm-weather advantage in Texas!
