Um. I don't know if y'all have heard but… HALLOWEEN IS COMING. I say that in the exact same yelling voice that my daughter has been saying that phrase in all month (she might be a little bit excited).
But here's the deal y'all – I'm not as into Halloween as my daughter.
I dressed up as kid but kinda phased it out once I hit puberty.

I mean, I ate it by myself watching TV on the couch but still! I bought candy!
Now though, every single year since Melanie was born, I have organized a neighborhood wide Trick-or-Treat Hay Ride.
Our rural road isn't set up for kids to safely go door-to-door so this event allows them to do so in a safer environment.
