Halloween in Smalltownland

Last night Smalltownland offically observed the Halloween tradition. Trick or Treat times were set and all the kids came out to collect. Toots was ready....or should I say The Dragon Lady Ninja.
We picked up Pocohontas before we started our trek around town.


And, away we went.

The great thing about Trick or Treating in a small town is that it becomes a time to visit for a few minutes with friends. And, receive kisses from the family dog.
The girls received plenty of candy and Pocohontas developed a blister on her toe. Thus, we called it a night.

This Halloween would not be complete without sharing the photo that I took in Denver, just a couple of weeks ago. It is a marshmallow ghost that someone had stuck on top of a wrought iron fence post.



Pretty scary, huh?!!
Wishing you a spooky night.

  2. I wish our town had done it last night. Nope, Sunday night. Tons of sugar, then off to bed and school in the morning. Fun times with a herd.

  6. Now THAT'S the kind of ghost I can handle! If he gets too scary, I'll eat him! Don't ya just love small towns where you can still trick or treat? Great pics, and I hope Pocahontas' toe survived!

  7. vera vera cool! the girls look so cute. We had trick or treat last night too. They always do that if Halloween is on sunday so the kids aren't out on a school night. Nice thing about small towns.

  8. Those girls are too cute for words!
    Pocahontas should wear designer moccasins for trick or treating!

  9. Ohhh, so nice! And such cute costumes on the girls.

    That marshmallow man on the fence post still looks good enough to eat. I wonder what happened to him?

    Love your photos. :)

  11. Lori - Things went well and the girls had a great time. Trick or Treat hours were from 5-8pm.

    Texwisgirl - Pocohontas is my daughter's friend. They are great companions.

  14. No one "officially" set the night to go trick or treating in our area so we've have visitors Saturday night and tonight.

  16. I love that marshmallow! Too cute. We have only one community near by where we can trick or treat, so all the local kids congregate there. It is always a blast! Glad to hear you had a great time.

  18. It looks like Ninja and Pocahontas had a very good time trick or treating together! For the first time in years I have candy left over as we had less than usual amount of children come to our door.

    Thanks for answering my questions, Farmchick. I've used Picnik a little through Picasa. I'll have to try the full version on the web.

  20. Great costumes and I LOVE the marshmallow ghost - too cute!!

  21. I love the little marshmallow ghost! My kids are too old for trick or treating, but they love sitting out on the front porch and giving out candy. Sometimes they still dress up, tho, when they treat the kids.

  22. Seems like the kids had a good time. Marshmallow ghosts? Something to avoid.

  23. Love the girls costumes... and the marshmallow ghost... too cute.

  24. I grew up on a farm about 6 miles out of a small town. My parents would drive me into town to go trick or treating so we could have plenty of houses to chose from.

  25. Oh they are so cute! I love the shot of both walking away:)
    I hope your night was a ton of fun!

    Have a wonderful new week!!

  26. I love that costume. How cute on your daughter. Pocahontas was well dressed too.
    It is great to trick or treat in a small town. No one came last night. It is sad in a large city, people are afraid to let their kids go trick or treating. All my grandkids went to festivals at the church.

  27. Now, did you make it to the Chez? Mom has trouble remembering who all came up there, and I failed to ask Dad if you stopped by. He said Black Kitty kept ambling out of the bushes to scare people as they arrived at the door...

  28. Cute, Cute!

    I loved Water for Elephants!

  29. Who knew that a marshmallow ghost would look so adorable stuck on a fence??? Cute!

    Not as cute as your little small town Ninja and Pocahontas. I hope they made a grand haul!

    God bless and have a magnificent Monday sweetie!!!

  30. I'm glad the girls had a good time and got lots of loot. We had very few kids come last night, so we gave them each a lot of candy! There's also a lot left, and my husband is very happy about that!

  31. Cute costumes! Glad the girls got to fill their candy bags. I like the marshmallow ghost.

  32. So cute - that outfit "fits" your Toots! I'd say she was an awesome "ninja" and Pocohontas - knowing her - that is a perfect fit as well. So glad they had a good time and I love the ghost on the post!

  33. The girls look darling. In fact, I was saying how cute an Indian costume would be for next year.

    Love the marshmallow ghost! Too cute & funy & scary all at the same time.

    Great idea about doing it on Saturday...my sister is a teacher and she said all of her students today were total zombies.
