introducing Oreo the goat and one proud Yankee Fan

Here is one happy Yankee Fan, sitting at our Fall Family Festival (a trunk or treat event.)

He was so proud of his decorations! And as each kid came to get candy, he asked them who they were pulling for and we tallied it up. Some of the kids had absolutely no idea, but went with the Yankees cause Charlie was wearing his Yankee hat, coat and listening to the game on the radio.

While he did this, I went over and played with the goats and llamas at the petting zoo the church brought in. This is Oreo. She was very happy to eat out of my hand. Cute, for a goat, I guess.

I think I have shared before that I grew up in a family that didn't celebrate halloween, and so all this is new to me. Charlie still is the one with more enthusiasm for the day, but I go along and take pictures and look at all the cute kids. Toward the end of the night when they all get hyper, I wanna bail, but that could happen anywhere I suppose.

All in all, it was a fun night and not cold like last year. Oreo was thankful for that, I think.

Oreo is cute for a goat. I'm glad you made friends with farm animals.
I celebrated Halloween when I was a kid, but after I turned 10 or 11, it lost its luster. For me, it has always been about the candy! Caroline gets a kick out of dressing up, but I could easily take or leave it. But, until she gets tired of it, I'll happily eat her fun sized Snickers bars.

Great shots! We're just getting into the whole Halloween thing here too. Kids'll do that to you I guess.

No punn intended. Get it? Kids.

When we moved here from the midwest I was amazed at the number of people who didn't celebrate halloween....then was reminded that we live in the bible belt. Still it didn't make sense to me, my Daddy is a preacher and we did halloween. I love it - I am always up for a party and to me halloween means party. Any reason to dress up, eat sugar and have fun seems like a no brainer to this party girl. :o)
