We scrambled to bring in all of the paper mache pieces, foggers, sound system.
But, the Trick r' Treaters came :) They came in droves in the rain. Soaked to the bone, some with umbrellas, some without, some driving from house to house, jumping out of their cars, all in the name of Halloween and all with smiles on their faces.
Even though our yard wasn't up to it's full potential, we enjoyed many compliments from our visitors. Adults and children alike voiced their love of the yard and dried my spirits :)
We gave out two cauldron's full of candy and once the rain got to be too much, we enjoyed the company of many of our neighbors, friends and family, inside.
It wasn't the Halloween that I expected, but it was a lot of fun. I felt very warm and fuzzy to have such a great group of people around us, celebrating my favorite day :)
Unfortunately, the rain made photographing the yard very difficult. So, I only have a few blurry shots to share for now.
However, we decided, for the first time ever, to run full effects in the yard again tonight. :) This way, people who want to come back and see it in dryer conditions can, we can enjoy it to it's fullest potential, and we can get the pictures that I cherish every year ;)
I hope that everyone had a safe and fun Halloween, no matter what your weather conditions were :)
