    At the supermarkets and dollar stores here there are finally signs of halloween. Mum and I bought stickers that say things like Zomble potion and spider venom and we put those on bottles of orange, green and red soft drink. I bought some lollypops yesterday and will buy some fun sized mars bars to put in a large pumpkin bowl that I have. If we get trick and treaters we will be set, if not we will eat the lollies here.

    Love the decorated soft drink bottles idea - have always wanted to do that!

    I bought a small amount of candy - in fall color theme wrappers - to go in jar I made for front office staff at DS's school...was planning on getting Hershey's Kisses in the fall color wrappers but they were no where to be found. I always see those! And the one time I am looking for them....ah well...

    I will work on DS's Halloween costume this weekend - ordering part and planning DIY for the rest...

    AND excited to put up Halloween decor this weekend as well!

    Will also be pulling out all the camping decor items and getting started on camper prep for our trip in general. Picked up a new inflatable ghost for our collection. :)

    Halloween decor done!

    Ordered main elements for DS's cold weather costume today - will work with him on designing the rest of it. We have a Halloween party to go to this weened.

    It's a trunk or treat event so we'll be taking the blow ups. Need to make it to Sam's one day this week to buy all the candy for party and for camping trick or treat event.

    Still working on packing camper and finalizing camping menu for Halloween.

    DS was so excited to see all the Halloween decor lit up on the front porch this morning! :)

    Halloween is out in full at the shops. I have bought some fun sized chocolates and lollie pops. Will put them in a big pumpkin bowl that I have. Will not do this until I get back from holidays around the 28th of October as we will gradually eat them if they are out.

    I had to downscale Halloween because of a pending surgery so I only put out one blow up on Monday and yesterday before our snow came in we had a horrible wind storm. I look out the window and it's blowing across my yard. That rarely happens here, but it pulled out all 6 stakes that were holding it down. Geezz...so I gotta go put it back up. booo!!!
    As far as candy I did get my one bag of Costco candy bought for the house, but I still need 1 for the city event they have. I usually try and donate one big bag a year. I need to remember to do that on my next run.

    Oh yeah Mary, Denver was all over the news because in less than 24 hours we went from 83 to 11 degrees. That number varies by a degree from each newscast it seems but 80's to low teens. Literally we were dying at 3pm because it was over 80 and we'd already turned the swamp cooler off and by 6:30 or 7 it was in the 40's and we had snow and cold in the morning. One of the 2 biggest drops on record ever..... gotta love it!

    Crazy weather!!!!

    Our Halloween party we attended this past weekend went great! DS won for best boy's costume (or should I say DH and I won since we made it, lol)

    I've been working a little bit every day on getting the camper ready for our Halloween trip next week - very excited!

    Our community switched the trick or treating day from the Sunday afternoon before Halloween to the Saturday afternoon before Halloween last year and we didn't get anyone. Not sure what will happen this year. I am not sure how to prepare. I think I am going to get non-food items (plastic spiders, glow sticks, or maybe gum) and just have it on hand if some one comes. I will get something special for neighbor's grandson.

    We (meaning LC1 and DD) have made over 100 plastic gloves of candy so far. They made some more today and I'll make more tomorrow. I'd like to have all 300 gloves done by the end of this weekend.
