Started with the parade at school-in the gym because of the rain.
Andrew cried when he saw this. The squirrels-those crazy squirrels...and this is after just ONE day. But don't the two pumpkins look like they had a crazy, bloody fight? I had to laugh.
Our dinner tradition. The excitement level before 6 pm-trick or treat time-is at an all time high and just trying to get them to sit and eat is a losing battle.
I'm missing Matthew, darn! He left for a friend's house already. I will make him stand outside today, just so I have one for his scrapbook. I have to get our front door traditional Halloween pictures. (Isaac was our hander-outer, boo hoo.)
Our first treat...a policeman was heading by our house on his bike and stopped to pull out some candy. I love our neighborhood. The kids were thrilled.
Abbey's trick or treat group.
My two cute tails.
It was a beautiful PERFECT Halloween night. Chilly but clear and crisp. I loved every minute of it. Daylight quickly turned to...
The two hours flew.
After we got home, I picked up Matt at his friends house, took a few boys home, cleaned up a little, (my house is SO messy!), called Abbey home, put the two little guys to bed, and told Jeff I was DONE, and went to bed. I have no idea what happened after that.
The next morning I was a woman on a mission. By 8:45 am all my Halloween stuff was in bins in the attic. I am crazy. But I wanted an uncluttered house again. As much as I love putting up holiday decorations I love taking them down even more. And then I cleaned. And cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. Sheets, floors, counters, drawers. Ohhhh, it felt good.
