Pre-Halloween Halloween???

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like Halloween has become a week-long event around here.
Today (a full week ahead of the day) we went to a "Harvest" costume Carnival at the christian college. Also, Old Navy was giving kids free shirts if they came in with their costumes on.
Tuesday we go to the local high school for dress-up trick or treating.
And the Big Day...they go to school in their costumes, then go to the downtown shops for candy, then they can go to the mall...ALL before it gets late enough for them to hit the neighbor houses!
If you're keeping track that's SIX events all before the actual night! Of course, it's a blessing this week since the hubby's in Nicaragua. He'll be home tomorrow, but it's been 10 days since we've seen him.

Also, I'm a hunting season single parent, so I don't see much of the hubby until Thanksgiving (elk are very elusive beasties).

Have you hit any Halloween fun yet?
