we celebrated Halloween at out house this year with a big bash. many of our good friends were there to walk in the woods, play games, eat good food, and sit by the bon-fire. it had been raining for two days before, and stopped for a beautiful sunny afternoon. however, the wet ground meant tracks of mud all through the house, and the neighbor having to come with his tractor to pull some cars out of the mud! it was all very exciting, and the mud was mopped up before the kids got up the next day. it is always more important to have good friends welcomed in to the home than it is to have clean floors...i think anyway.
