We had a great night last Thursday evening at our house. About 5pm we thought it was going to rain, and thus ruin our plans. However, the sun came out, and we had a great evening! We put some lights up, had "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" playing on the big screen, and even had two couples come over and join us in handing out candy and getting to know our community. We ended up seeing 20-25 kids. It was a great time, and many expressed that they had lived in neighbhorhoods previously that did great stuff like this, and wished ours did more! Needless to say, next year is going to be awesome.
Here is a link to some pictures of the evening.
