Anybody that knows me well knows that I HATE Halloween. I'm sorry but I think it is the DUMBEST day EVER!! I do think it is cool that other people get into it, but I have NEVER been one to like it. Even as a little girl I didn't find dressing up, walking around in the cold, and begging for candy very fun! I do feel kind of bad knowing that the previous owners of our house LOVE Halloween and would always deck the house out and make it way fun for the kids who came trick-or-treating. And now that we live here it is just another house. I know my sister knows what I'm talking about since the house she now lives in use to have the town's best Christmas lights display.
Anyway...for Halloween we always have a family fun night and watch a movie, pop popcorn, and eat candy until we are sick. We weren't gonna go trick-or-treating at all this year until Grandma Bowers called two nights ago and told us that we had to bring the kids by because she was dressing up like a witch. So tonight at about 5:00 I decided to pull out the costumes and see what we had. I had only planned on dressing up the little guys, but when we got looking, and thanks to my sister-in-law Melanie, we actually came up with enough for ALL 11 kiddos. We left for trick-or-treating at 5:30 and were done by 5:45 - since we only went to 3 houses. After trick-or-treating we went to the Slades to eat Soup and homemade bread, then we came home, visited with some friends, Travis and Kathy Aldritch, that we haven't seen in 5 years, and then just relaxed. I am grateful that I have kids that really don't mind that we just stay home for Halloween!!
Here are the kiddos...
Tristen - Batman, Michael - Hulk, Amelia - Witch, Eva - Witch, Mallori - Dalmation, Porter - Ironman, Paul - Woody, Morgon - Hulk, Miles - Monkey, Zach - Dragon, Caden - Frog
It was great spending time with family over at the Slades. Amanda and Jessi were here with their adorable kids. I sure do love those girls and think they are pretty dang amazing! I had to include pics of their adorable kids!
