I absolutely LOVE halloween! No matter how hectic and crazy it might seem trying to get everyone ready and running here and there, I just love everything about it. Making spooky shaped cookies with the kids, pumpkin carving, the pretty leaves on the ground, seeing the kids in their adorable costumes, spending time with family, getting dressed up myself, going door-to-door, seeing all the excitement on the kids faces while they are trick-or-treating, and even eating candy until it makes you sick. Everything about Halloween I enjoy.
This year Rylee was a girl genie and Dax was a vampire. Both kids costumes turned out perfect and they both looked adorable. Rylee was definitely the cutest little genie I have ever seen and Dax made the most handsome little vampire.
Also, a few days ago I went to the Zumba Halloween party and dressed up as an 80's chick. We worked out for 2 hours and then they handed out prizes, had refreshments, and just hung out for a bit. It was a lot of fun! And dressing up as an 80's girl was also a lot of fun.
On Halloween morning we got up and got the kids ready for the trunk-or-treat, which was at 11:30 am. After that we all had lunch, took Dax back home for a nap, and then back in our costumes and off for some trick-or-treating. The weather started out nice and perfect in the morning. Then at about 2 pm it started raining really hard, but by 3:30 pm it stopped raining and cleared up long enough for us to go to all the houses we had planned to. At first Dax wanted me to just carry him from house to house, but once I put him down he was loving it. He wanted to run as fast as he could across the yards, not wanting to wait for anyone to answer before skipping to the next house. Soon I had to go back to holding him so we could wait up for everyone else and so I could keep up myself. That kid is too fast for me.
After all the trick-or-treating fun we stopped to see grandma Shauna, then I took the kids to see grandma Dean and Tom and then over to see grandma Judi and Papa where we ended our night. We ate dinner and then Rylee helped answer the door for the kids and hand out candy. They couldn't come fast enough for her.
The kids had an exciting day and ended up with more candy then they even know what to do with.
