I missed blogging about Halloween this year and it has been haunting me! The annual block party my girls hosted again this year netted record numbers of guests.

Guests brought crocks of chili and soups.
Homemade breads.

And, tons of desserts.

The guest tables were lit with strands of orange lights running down the center of the tables with jack-o-lanterns scattered throughout. The lit candelabras were perfect for this spooky after dark occasion.

After dinner there were hay rides for all. A couple of our neighbors had put up some awesome Halloween displays in their yards. The hay wagon driver took advantage of the free light shows by including the houses on his route.

All ten of our grands were on this hay wagon.
I was glad to see Papa and his watchful eye on the very back.

After the hayrides it was time for the Trunk-or-Treat.
All of the cars had parked on both sides of our block from
my house down to my daughters homes.
(There is about 10 acres of land between us.)

Papa and I had decorated his truck for the

Our grands were pretty proud of their
Grandma and Papa's spider infested
Trunk-or-Treat display.

Once everyone had gone home and the clean up was just about
done Papa treated the cousins to a ride in the spider infested 
bed of his truck through our dark rural neighborhood.

The kids were all smiles!

The party was a huge success and the 
memories created with our grandchildren..... priceless!
