We seem to celebrate Halloween all of October. I counted tonight and there were four different times that the kids had the opportunity to dress up besides Halloween. It felt like not as exciting when it came down to physically go Trick or Treat. It stressed me out initially because I felt the need to make everything perfect for their memories. How could it be perfect if they would rather pass out the candy to the kids? However, they were able to get a taste of everything; and not just their candy.
Our parents came over for hot dogs and chili, while the kids passed out the candy. The dinosaur was a big hit on our lawn. People were taking pictures with him. Amelia was really impressed by the decorations, and not with people passing out non-candy items. She even left a bag of pretzels on someone else’s porch. Everett was busy running off with his neighbor buddy. I did like how grateful he delivered his THANK YOU each home. Eleanor, even with a nap under her wings today, still couldn’t hack it outside. It was pretty cold and I ended up walking back with her on my hip. Luckily, my sister was there and she helped Aaron with the other two. We’re so lucky to have awesome neighbors too!
Here are some of our more memorable moments this month.
