Back to the norm

Well allan is back at work tonight. He gets off tomorrow though thank goodness. he took off last night to hang with us. Our weekend was neat. lilly and i went to the elementary schools ffall festival on sat day. It looks like a neat school. the had alot of fun stuff including bounce houses and all kinds of games. Sat night i took her to the queen creek festival our town puts on. I had no idea it was so huge. They toook us by busloads to the park it was at. It was free put on by the city. They had a long line of cars that had their trunks decorated and the city provided the candy to pass out. the line was so long we didn't even go thru it. There was tons of stuff at this thing and we are going to try and make it a ritual to go to it the next few years. They had a dj and a show with jugglers and stuff and a rock climbing wall and bounce houses and a ton of vendors. Really neat. Sunday night allan stayed home so we took lilly out early. i think we went at about 530 and got back to the house around 630 7. in an hour we passed out all of our candy. We had soooo many trick or treaters we ran out of candy. it was ridiculous but we live a block away from the elementary school so i guess we should have expected that. They came in groups of like 5 or 6 at a time but it was constant. so when we ran out we took lilly for more trick or treating. Lilly really got into it this year. She wore her costume the whole time. All of it headband, gloves, tights.. lol. She got so hyped up on candy it seemed like she was drunk. SHe was literally chasing her dad around the neighborhood trying to scare him by growling at him. We had a really good time. Talked to quite a few neighbors. It was very nice. Alot of people had little firepits going in their driveways and lawn chairs out passing out the candy. There were houses that were decorated to the kilt. I mean they had things on ziplines that flew out at you and movies playing on thier houses from projectors. Lilly had a great time. She would run up and pick a piece of candy out and tell them thanks. She keeps telling me she wants to be a cat again. I don't think she was really a cat. We aren't real sure what her costume was. It had a tutu dress and funny tights that she did manage to rip before we got home. it also had wings and ears on a headband. I cant even tell you how many times lilly dumped her pumpkin out on accident. She was just having so much fun in her sugar high state. lol.. Anyway hope everyone else had a great time. We did.

It sounds like a blast! Maricopa has something similar and my sister said the line was crazy long there too! I love the towns that do the fun stuff like that. It is awesome. Emma has a fall festival at school tomorrow. Should be interesting.
