Happy Halloween!! I love festivities of any sort and have been so excited for today.  In years past, my excitement has pretty much been the only around here....but this year, it clicked! Garrett got really into dressing up and even more 'into' trick-or-treating and it was so fun to watch.  I even had a makeshift cat costume, which all the kids thought was so funny.  Maybe next year I can get Paul to wear a costume.:)

My boy is growing up...wanting to go up to doors without me, high-fiving friends about their loot, and making his own plans about what he was going to do with the stash.  It was great---nights like tonight feed my soul.  There is nothing better in the whole wide world than watching your child find such overwhelming joy in something.

The part where momma begs "please sit by your sister so I can get your picture":)

The annual 'pre-game' picture
Spider-people were very popular this year

Look at that determination!
This was Lilah's favorite part...chewing on the cotton candy stick:)

LOVE the header picture of the family... so cute! You have some of the cutest little Spidermans (and woman) that I have ever seen. And how precious is that little girl in the peacock costume!? I love Halloween and seeing all of the costumes kids have... I wish we got trick or treaters at our apartment!

Just now saw your comment... you know you can always recruit us for that job next year! ;-) Last year we got TWO, and they were the awkward age where they were getting maybe a little too old for it and didn't have any cute costumes, but clearly I should have appreciated that more because this year we didn't get a one!
