Halloween... Was It Only a Week Ago?

Why does it seem like Halloween was a month ago, when it was only last week?  Maybe because it was, technically, last month?  Maybe because we plowed through all of the candy so quickly?  (It seems like it should last longer...)  Regardless, I should certainly take down the Halloween decorations from our house.  Maybe tomorrow...

In the meantime, a few photos of kiddos and costumes:



















  • The Almost-Teenager as a devil (headed to a friend's party on October 20)
  • The Eleven-Year-Old as a gypsy (prior to Trunk-or-Treat on October 26)
  • The Eight-Year-Old Ninja (huge props to him for being willing to wear the same costume 2 years in a row--hooray!)
  • The Just-Turned-Four-Year-Old as a skeleton.  (Muchas gracias, WalMart, for selling darling pajamas for only $6 this year!)

Clearly I'm biased, but aren't they adorable?!  There is only one thing that I think is cuter than our kids: our kids in COSTUME!!

Post Halloween Picnic

Because, sometimes if you have too much candy to eat all by yourself, it helps to share with "friends".  Or in this case, Webkinz stuffed animals.


Um, so yeah, that actually IS taking place in a child's bedroom.  The only thing that would make it better would be if each "friend" got his or her favorite type of candy from the pile.  Not to worry!  That situation was remedied about 1 minute after the original photo was taken:


(Note how in the first picture,  Monkey is kinda glaring at Pug.  But once Monkey has his licorice, he happily looks at his own bounty!)


I love the creativity of four-year-olds!
