Happy Halloween!

Early this morning I put up our holiday decorations: skull tridents, clingy cobwebs, black spiders, festive window stickers and even a sound-activated skeleton, all in the anticipation of dozens of kids coming by our house. In Newfoundland the most kids we ever saw was 7, on Vancouver Island there were never any kids at all, and here on PEI we were finally hoping to see more because Souris is such a small and friendly community.

Now that we’ve turned off the lights at the end of the evening, our headcount only reached 10 kids, but they were all dressed up really nice so it was a successful Halloween after all. We saw zombie princesses, zombie bears, an escaped convict, an 80s fashion girl, a scary clown, and several more ghoulish and imaginative outfits…


Day to Day Life


I’m in Mission BC population around 36000 and we only had 12 kids show up. The stores downtown handed out candy and they had a lot show up for that. It’s a safer way for kids to collect and still have fun.

Hi Cheri, Souris PE is considerably smaller at ~1200 people so I guess 10 kids wasn’t that bad after all 🙂
What did surprise me is that all the kids were driven from house to house, it must be because we live in the country now, too much distance between houses otherwise.
