Halloween in Nebraska

Halloween is big here in the United States. Latest statistics show that when it comes to money-making, it has exceeded Christmas.

Robert and I went to Bellevue Berry Farm to pick out 2 perfect-looking pumpkins. Here is what I got.

We went out the deck to carve our little Jack-o-Lanterns.

We don't really celebrate Halloween but we LOVE children and will do anything to make them smile.

We handed out trick or treat candy with our friend Shirlena. Isn't she the cutest with her Cat in the Hat costume?

This is our first set of costumes. A retro jogger and a referree (or a Foot Locker employee as Shirlena joked).

I took some pictures of the kids but our of respect for their privacy, I am not posting them. However, I will give you a glimpse of a properly disguised kid.

Rob and I wanted to go out dancing last night. So for our second set of costumes, we were 80's hiphop group RUN DMC -- well, except we were lacking a third member. But here is what we came up with.

Rob is Reverend Run.

Looks like you guys had so much fun! We got home after dark because K finishes late on Fridays but we were still able to hand out two bags of treats. Hopefully, next year we'll get to be in costume!

Missing you!!
