Just the usual....taking the little one to my hometown trick or treating. We live out in the country and don't get trick or treaters so no reason for someone to stay behind. They had trick or treat hours here last night so tonight its off to where I grew up.

Julie, I knew you'd start this thread!

Today is son #1's Birthday, so we're having twice the fun.
I told him that he could do whatever he wants today, so after church he said he'll be building his new legos and playing with his new hamster.

Then DH will take the boys out T&T-ing. DH likes to dress up with them - he'll probably be the same as last year - scrubs & a white lab coat and a photo id that says he's "Dr. Frank N. Stein, head of the psych ward for wayward criminals"

Happy Halloween everyone!

it's absolutely gorgeous weather here today - mid 70s and sunny. I've got all the windows open for a change and all my houseplants are perking up. This evening promises fair for all the T&T-ers in the neighborhood.

Handy Husband has almost finished this year's Halloween extravaganza. Apparently he is not putting as much stuff out in the yard this year as in former years. The main attraction will be in one side of the garage. I hope I can take a photo later that will do it justice. Perhaps I will even snag a shot of him in his getup.

I went over to a friend's house yesterday afternoon for a Halloween Party. We carved pumpkins and ate tons of food. One of the dishes was a Brazilian Meat Stew. It had 4 different kinds of pork. It was so good. My friends are hosting a foreign exchange student from Brazil. She has never been trick or treating. The kids are going to take her out tonight. I bought over some Cracker Jack's. She had never had them before. I did not get home until after midnight.

Happy Halloween, everyone. SC

SC, I have heard of that stew and seen it made on TV. Talk aboutcher meat overkill! It's called fechoada or something like that, right?

That is right. It was a meat overkill, but it was so good. It was the hit of the party. My friend said that she would give me the recipe.

Here is a link below that looks like the same recipe
