There were no trick or treaters around this area tonight. I dressed up. I guess you could say I was spider girl haha.

As we were coming home in the evening we drove through a few towns & there was hardly anybody out trick or treating. I always enjoyed handing out candy to the trick or treaters.
About the last 4 years we haven't had any. I guess not many people care about dressing up for Halloween anymore it seems.
I am 19 years old & I have been dressing up for Halloween for about 15 years or so. That's about as far back as I can remember me being dressed up for Halloween. But, I do enjoy being in costume. :)

This is the candy I have left. Not very much. I gave half of what I had to David for the kids to eat.

Since I have Sunday & Monday off I will be straighting up around the house. It needs a little bit done in the living room. It will get taken care of. :)
Hope everybody had a great Halloween!
Going to be giving candy out for Halloween tonight. I am dressing up, lol.
I am going to wear my long purple skirt that I got about 3 years ago. I probably wore it about 10 times. The past 4 years we haven't got any trick or treaters. I remember the first two years we lived out here we had at least 10. I enjoy dressing up & handing out candy. Always have. :)
Trick or treating hours are from 5:30pm until 8:30pm. I have plenty of candy to give out this year, lol. I have to go dig my spider web cape out of the closet later. I will take plenty of pictures later & maybe a video. The weather is gonna be warm so yay! :) I am excited, that's why I am up later. Haven't been up this late in a few weeks or so. On WGN they are going to have a Munsters marathon starting a 3pm! Always love watching that show.

Anyway, later this morning/afternoon my family & I are going out to Champaign to Steve & Barry's to see what's going on there, then, we will go to Wal-Mart & Aldi's for some groceries for us & the pets. :)
I will try to post in the evening.
Until then,

Autumn Leaves.

Yesterday we went out to Howard Virgin Park a few miles outside of town. I just wanted to see the autumn scenery. Not all of the trees there were turning. So, I'll be making a trip back there soon, LOL. I haven't been to this park in over two years. Wow.

I have never seen a bug like this before.

I posted this on my Deviant Art account & someone commented it & said, it's part of the praying mantis species. I have never heard of those types of bugs before. I really don't like bugs anyway. It's wonderful how you can learn new things each day!

Some Newest Additions To The Family & More. :O

Four babies & mommy :) Gosh, the little ones are such stinkers lol.
These babies were born about a few weeks ago. I can't wait to see what colors they turn out to be.

These here are Rainbow's great grandchildren. The cinnamon blue one reminds me so much of the bird I used to have named "Zork" He's got the same colors & the same dot on the back of his little head. :) His mother & father had 3 babies this time.
This one here looks just like his great grandfather. They are just so darling.

We bought Rainbow from the pet store back on March 27th, 2000. He passed away Oct. 15th, 2003. It felt like we had him longer than that though. He was my angel. I used to pretend to have a bird in my hand & he would always fly down on my hand & when he saw there was no bird in my hand sometimes he would fly away. But he always fell for it LOL. I miss him so much but I know someday I will see my little Rain again.

His son Rainbow Jr. Born May 12th, 2001. Still living & well! :) We just call him Jr pretty much lol.
Jr's son & daughter Rainbow & Bullwinkle. Jr's sister was named Bullwinkle. We got rid of her though. She was a mean bird lol. We named this one Bullwinkle because it looks just like her except the other Bullwinkle was blue. This Bullwinkle is a sweet bird :) As you can see Rainbow the 3rd looks just like his grandfather Rainbow. :)

This little guy is Jr's other daughter's son. He looks just like his great grandpa doesn't he? :)
Well, now you know some of the history of the Rainbow family :)
