Dallin decided to be a scary ghost. Adam thinks he looks like a dead choirboy. How rude, Adam! Ü He looked cute as ever. He was so excited to go to school in his outfit and the school had a little parade that both he and Audrey were in. One of these days I will be a good mom and actually go. Emma was a cute little Tinkerbell, and Claire was a pot of Hunny. She was the most adorable pot of hunny you have ever seen! I am purposely misspelling honey to give it the right effect. We went to Daddy's work and had a little celebration there. They were doing trick-or-treating and had a room with food and games. We took Lacey, one of my daycare girls with us and we had a lot of fun. There isn't much else to tell. I hope everyone had as nice of a Halloween as we did! See you again soon.

Well, another Halloween has come and gone, and what a success it was. I admit, I have lost my patience with finding candy wrappers everywhere I look, but if that's all I have to deal with, I will do it with pleasure. My kids got to go trick-or-treating with their daddy which they loved! They haven't been able to do that since 2006! This was Emma's first year, and I can tell the bug has been planted with her. I am doing what my mom used to do and after picking a few things for myself, I have let them have free rein on their candy. They know that once it's gone, it's gone and if they get sick, too bad for them! Ü
This year, Audrey wanted to be Cruella DeVil. Being that we don't ever have any money, I had to make do with what I had. I let her use my black dress which we pinned to fit. She wore her own tights and shoes, and we agreed that Cruella could forgo her fur this time. I know, I know, she's not Cruella unless she is draped in fur, but we couldn't find any. So, the hair had to do the trick!
