We had our usual trunk or treat at church but it started at 5:30, which seamed pretty early to me. We didn’t have time to eat dinner before and it was still light outside when we got there. You might not think the kids care about not having dinner before trick or treating. But Halloween dinner is a big tradition in the Abel house and something the kids always talk about. As a matter of fact it had been something they had been talking about for weeks (I thought maybe I would get off the hook this year, but no). I had been busy the entire day making the Halloween dinner (one of the reasons I was so glad they chose costumes from the costume box). I was pretty disappointed they weren’t going to be able to eat it while it was going to be fresh, but oh well, what can compete with candy!! After the annual trunk or treat we drove to see some of our friends that we see every year, some of whom do special treats for our kids or just like to see them, then we did a few streets by our home. Then finally home for the long awaited dinner…..

|Vampires blood with their bloody teeth and eyeballs inside. This is the only one we have every year because the kids request it.|
