This year, our Halloween went on and on . . .. and the boys loved it!  I will warn you that some of these photos you may have seen in previous posts but I still wanted to put all of our Halloween stuff in one post.

The very first Halloween activity was the Autumn Festival that is hosted by our town.  The boys could hardly contain themselves all day while waiting for Darryl to get home so we could go Trick-Or-Treating!

The Harvest has a "Truck-Or-Treat" set up.  The first area includes lots of games which the boys enjoyed playing.  The second part is local businesses that have set up their "trunks" so you can just walk by and pick up more candy.  The boys so enjoyed it all.  Noticed that Darryl is in Shorts ? Yep.  It was that warm . A near perfect night! 

The following evening, we went on a hayride and had a cook out with our church.  I did not take any photos since it was dark and . . there was hay being thrown but we had fun.  The boys got into throwing straw/hay and thought it was funny.  Nate fell fast asleep about half way through the ride and did not wake up until the next morning.  Josh LOVED roasting hot dogs with Darryl and ate two :-) 

Our next activity was the Zoo Boo which I talked about in Josh's birthday post:

Finally, on Halloween Night we went Trick-Or-Treating for real.  We started by attending a Trunk-or-Treat at a local church so the boys could play some games.  Thankfully the weather turned nicer - no wind and only a few sprinkles.  After finishing the games at the church we started walking door to door and the boys would yell "Trick or Treat".  They loved this part of the night . After going about a block and a half, Nate's legs were so tired that he would take a step and his legs would just collpase.  He was sooo tired!  It wasn't long after that when Josh started saying, "Mom, I just want to go home, I'm so tired" :-)  So we headed back to the car - it was ok, though, they had full buckets :-)

You may notice that we never carved the pumpkins we got at the pumpkin patch . . . well, I figure that we can start that in another year or so.  For now, I'm enjoying using them as decoration :-)

Also, a shout out to a friend of my parents who supplied me with the costumes.  I was really at a loss this year - she sent this over and the boys loved them :-)
