Raven’s dressing up for the kids.. I should have done the same. 🙂 I just got my first batch of trick or treaters. They were adorable and polite. (Some of the kids in the past were not..) The dogs are going nuts outside of course. Raven has to work again tomorrow so no all night movie marathon tonight, but maybe tomorrow night. I adore everything about Halloween.
