This year we messed with tradition and ditched the annual Halloween Party simply because we were all way too busy to get everything organized. Thank goodness we made that wise decision. Things really have been crazy around here!! But some traditions you just don’t mess with and that is TREATSYLVANIA.
Our Treatsylvania tradition started 7 years ago when Justin was ONE!! It’s been our annual event that we share with Josh and Julie Bigge ever since.

Treatsylvania is a wonderful way to celebrate Halloween with little kids. The event is held at Lee Martinez Farm … a petting zoo type farm that is owned and operated by the City of Fort Collins. Little door front booths that are sponsored by local business are set up along the path at the farm and the kids get to go from door to door trick or treating.
A hayride, lots of pictures and a cookie treat from the barn at the end has always made the event a huge success with the kids. Over the years we have experienced some super cold Treatsylvania’s but this year the weather was BEAUTIFUL.

Since this year was Justin and Jackson’s 7th Treatsylvania Trick or Treating adventure they were old pro’s and looked SO BIG!! It only took a few doors and Makenna and Carli were racing from door to door.

Only 2 more Halloween Events for us and we will be ready to pack the costume box up.
