Let's start with this little miracle: I actually managed to get the house decorated and CLEANED yesterday in time for all the festivities!! We had no pumpkins, did no carvings, but these things are not the end of the world. We still had fun. Here's how the house turned out...
I was even done in time to do up my crazy spider web face for Meagan's school party. This year I busted out some super glittery fake eye lashes to go along with the web. They took a bit of getting used to, but it was fun. One of the kids in Meagan's class said I looked like Lady GaGa. Oh.my.word.
Again this year, Meagan was our only kid to dress up and trick-or-treat. A good friend of hers (in the middle) is moving out of state (today actually), so we invited her over to hang out with us for her last night in town! May as well go out with a bang, right?! Well, the one friend grew to two, and pretty soon, I had a house with three girls and all the silliness (and loud singing Frozen songs) that goes with it.
The girls had a blast together, although they gave up on trick-or-treating pretty early...it was COLD!
(see, when I was forced to bust out the winter coat and hat and gloves, it's COLD!)
The boys hung out and handed out candy. Eventually Isaac migrated across the street to hang out with our neighbors, and Sebastian wandered down the road a few houses to hang out with his best friend. And then later the boys walked around the block to a "haunted house" that someone had set up in their garage. Fun times!
So, the night wrapped up with one extra girl spending the night at our house, Isaac spending the night at the neighbors', and Sebastian home late to watch Halloween movies until we all crashed. Gone are the days of costumes and candy trading, of The Great Pumpkin and Scared Shrekless. Still, it was a great Halloween! Hope you enjoyed yours as much as we did!
