Halloween 2011

 Halloween was pretty messed up this year.  On Saturday the 29th they were predicting a major snow storm that evening and overnight.  With most of the trees sill having all of their leaves, the heavy snow was going to be devastating.  Western Massachusetts and the Hartford areas (where a lot of my family live) lost power almost immediately as did north of us and a lot of people now 6 days later still don't have power.

Even one town over in Lynnfield many people lost power and I was shocked at the damage when I drove through Monday  morning to bring the kids to school.  The damage was WAY worse than hurricane Irene two months ago.
My parents yard was littered with LARGE branches.  We did have a large branch or two in our yard down but nothing major.  We barely even got any snow in Peabody.

So every year since the kids were born we've spent Halloween in Lynnfield in Chris's parents' neighborhood.  Since by Monday many in Lynnfield still didn't have power and they were concerned about the danger of downed power lines they postponed Halloween!

Peabody was fine so we went there for the first time!  We went in a neighborhood near us where a friend lives.  Surprisingly we ended up finding them in the dark!

These pictures are from their dance class last week.

This is from trick or treating.
