While I'm not a fan of the dark side of Halloween and won't allow my children to be witches or scary monsters, I love the challenge of creativity - but this year was busier than some (see last years blog) so we went a different route. Annual 72nd Fireman's Ball in town - a safe community contest event. Soph placed 3rd and Tobias placed 3rd. We handed out full sized candy bars again this year - final number before the porch lights went off - 141. Up 9 from last year. Was wonderful weather and the time change kept people out longer with a weekend night too. Best costume seen: Jesus.
