a happy halloween

It was a happy Halloween indeed. Saturday took us to the little town of Wapakoneta for a karate seminar.Yep, Young Boy even smiles when he's having his arm & wrist twisted around!
A neat little town, that Wapakoneta...
and it has a really nice antique mall. Can I just say how I love some great merchandising by color.

Then it was a quick stop at one of my dad's favorite haunts, Gray's Orange Barn. We left with Amish cheese, wasabi peas and gummi bears.

That evening, thanks to Sweet Sister, we enjoyed handing out candy to the trick-or-treaters at her house. She made the most beautiful caramel apples and Mom brought scalloped potatoes & ham...yum!

This was our favorite costume of the night...this kid was a movie theater floor. Pretty funny.
Then on to the pumpkin carving where the competitive folk carved a pumpkin. My sister is serious about her work.

And my Dad...seriously, no one likes a good pumpkin-carving competition (or Easter-egg coloring contest!) like he does!
So, Young Boy gets his spirit of competition honestly.

Fun! I saw that picture of the theater and it makes me want to exclaim, "WAPA!" next time something worth an exclamation comes up.

Great photos. My grandkids do martial arts and really enjoy it. Looks a little scary to me.

That little town looks so cute. Great shops.

Looks like fun pumpkin carving.

Have a nice day!
