Happy Halloween & Zoo Boo!

Happy Halloween, y'all! Today we plan on celebrating by taking Evie trick-or-treating at Christopher's office then maybe dinner with his parents. We probably won't do trick-or-treat at night time this year. Chris is going to be teaching on Thursday night, there is a massive storm predicted to come through and wrangling four dogs and a toddler through all of it just doesn't sound like that much fun to me! I am also really Grinching it up this year and I am turning my porch light OFF. Neither tricking-or-treating by myself nor answering the doorbell for little ghouls and goblins while trying to wade through four idiot dogs barking their fool heads off while my two year old tries to sleep in the next room sound fun at all. So this year is going to be chill and we will count trick-or-treating at Christopher's office for this year! 
I also wanted to share these pictures of Zoo Boo with y'all! This was last Saturday. We weren't sure we were going to be able to go after Evie was sick all last week, but when her fever broke Friday evening we decided we'd give it a try. It was a really fun time. Evie got to ride the merry go round, go trick-or-treating at the various stations* and see all the decorations. The singing pumpkins scared her, but the "dinosaur" on the roof made up for it. All in all I am glad we went but I think that once Miss Evie is a little older (or not getting over being sick for four days) she will enjoy it more!

{Creeeeepy decorations!}

*Ok here is my rant. I feel like parents do not teach their children manners any more. I can't tell you how many kids I saw run up in front of the kids waiting in line, stick their buckets out without saying "Please!" or "Trick-or-treat!" and then run off without so much as a thank you. I find that to be ridiculous. Manners matter, and I am very proud to say that I am raising my daughter with manners and teaching her to respect others. She said trick-or-treat at every station and thank you, too.  You know what, she got extra candy out of it a few times. Seriously, though, please teach your children basic please and thank you. Ok, done now.
