The older my kids get, the more excited they get about Halloween. Here is a snapshot of our Halloween this year. Ben really wanted to be a Vampire, and I was surprised he even knew what one was. They don't allow kids to dress up at school here, but he loved looking scary for the trunk or treat. Alec is my snake fanatic right now, and he wanted to be a King Snake which he read about, so we turned Ben's old costume into a King snake by adding the stripes. Someone asked if he was a German Flag, but he was happy with how it turned out so I guess that is all that matters. Ty was loving the candy and had fun playing in his Frog costume and a few others all month. Violet was our sweet little Penguin oblivious to all the excitement. This Halloween we have done some fun things even though we missed the actual Trick-or-Treating on Sunday. Luke and I threw a dress-up Halloween party for couples, which was a tone of fun. I couldn't remember the last time I had dressed up. Luke and I were "Jack and Jill" and to be honest we were the worst costumes. I was so impressed with everyone's creativity. We had lots of different gathering for the kids with friends, it was a fun week.
