Boogity! Boogity!

It's that time of year again. The time of year when I put on about 5 pounds thanks to all of the kids' candy that's around the house and my sneaking a piece or 5 because they'll never notice that it's gone.
Ok, well other than that, it's really the time of year to say, "Trick-or-treat!" "Thank you!" and "Mom, can I have a piece of candy?" (which at some point, thanks in part to persistence, I give in and say yes because sometimes that's easier.)

It was a great evening to go trick-or-treating around here. Nice weather, no wind and kids in good moods all make for an easier night for moms and dads. It does get easier, too, as the kids get older. J & I were remembering a Halloween 2 years ago when I thought I wasn't going to make it. C was running down the street, trying to keep up with the other kids (who were older-he was only 3) and was in complete hysterics about the whole thing!
This year was a bit different.
Calm kids, using manners, smiling faces, happy about candy they was a very fun night for all of us!

And, we shared it with some good friends, which made it all the better!


  1. A lovely memory for sure. Your family pic is awesome. We spent the evening with daughter, son-in-law and their young daughters-2 1/2 & 3 months. The oldest did go down the street to a 'toddler' party while I stayed with the baby & gave out candy. Much fun all around. Glad you and yours had a great holiday!

  2. So glad you captured the fun evening. Your pictures are precious. Brilliant. I can hear the kids being persistent. My teenage daughter had fun passing out the candy.
