Fortunately we've adapted to our environment and located an Idaho version - complete with Corn Maze, tractor pulled wagons and pumpkins in a large field. Taten enjoyed a tent filled with farm animals to feed (and a camel?). We came home with a porch full of Fall color.
Finally the night comes to show Taten how to carve the pumpkins. Matt & Brit are creative souls with ideas (and an internet website with designs). By the time Grammy is going to put the knife to a pumpkin she's thinking past creative to clean-up, hot shower and bed. The kids made these delightfully adorable faces - I managed to come up with a large spider.
Halloween night arrived with cooler temperatures but that did not deter the trick or treaters. Taten wasn't a happy camper when he departed the house but I was confident once he figured out the whole candy routine he'd be up and running - and he was literally running from house to house with his parents and friends in tow.
Matt & Brit even took advantage of Halloween and attended a going away party in costume. They were quite a stunning pair. Of course Erin (and her roommates) and Krieg in Moscow were not to be outdone. Just Papa and Grammy home holding down the fort!
