We nailed Halloween this year! Definitely one for the books. As a mom, I think I have just as much fun dressing up
This year, both Jed and Levi understood exactly what was going on. "We get candeee!" Levi exclaimed. So after a few pictures in the front yard, it was off to the city park for some Trunk or Treat fun. "I don't want to go home," Levi lamented when it was all over. Jed and Levi practically jumped for joy when I told them we could go knocking door to door in our own neighborhood for even more candy.
Armed with some flashlights and the double stroller, we made our rounds from home to home. I couldn't help thinking how lucky we are to be surrounded by such genuinely good people and how even more unique it is that I know most everyone's name on our end of the neighborhood; we've met at least once and some folks I interact with weekly. I even got a good scare from one man up the street who snuck up behind me with a green mask! Levi fisted two suckers at a time, Jed ate his weight in chocolate, and after a nice hot shower, it was the happiest of Halloweens ever. I can't wait to do it all over again next year.
^^The Young family, off to see the wizard!^^
^^The Nelsons: a dragon, a knight, a princess, and a horse. That horse mask kills me. And no, Bron couldn't see or breathe, but he was a good sport!^^
^^I borrowed this awesome vintage dress and cape from my friend Amy. Super fun!^^
^^Our neighbors Jim and Janice are like an extra set of sweet grandparents to the kids. They were spoiled rotten!^^
