CROCKER, Mo. -- Retailing experts predict Americans will spend almost as much on Halloween this year as they will on Christmas: $7 billion.  That means high season runs the next four weeks for costumers and candy makers, haunted houses and pumpkin patches.  One family here in Pulaski County is gearing up for a grand opening despite a rough economy and growing season. Yik the llama and Yak the yak - yes, a real baby yak -- were the only two youngsters on the place on Friday but, starting Saturday, the first of 1,000 kids with reservations are coming to Happy Hollows Pumpkin Patch.  Josh Hall, father of three, was doing some last minute testing on the kid stuff.
