Trick-Or-Treat...Halloween 2014

Halloween has come and gone for another year.  Halloween night always makes me a bit sad. I watch my little ones going door to door, and as I do, I can't help but wonder how many more nights of trick-or-treating we will share together. Children grow. One Halloween will be our last night of the anticipation and excitement and all these fun times will become precious memories. But for now, we relish the fun times we have together. : )

Halloween started with cinnamon rolls and spooky music. : )

While the big kids worked on some schoolwork, Flynn and I decorated the table and secretly baked some brownies...

Then we had our yummy Halloween lunch...

before we got dressed for trick-or-treating!
(My heart melted when I came in and saw that Flynn had added her wand and headband to the dress I had set out.)

My Cinderella...

and my two creepy zombies. : )
Makeup by Madison. : )

How happy were we when Madison decided it was too cold and rainy to sit at a football game, and decided to join us?!

Stopping to see sweet, sweet mother...

and then home to sort the loot! : )

I always want to remember being altogether in our van on Halloween night.
I always want to remember how Peyton and Rhett took such care making sure Flynn was right with them.
I always want to remember how Flynn sat on my lap and smiled and said how much she loved Halloween!
I always want to remember that excitement in her eyes and the smile on her face as we went house to house, and how she told me exactly what she got when she returned to the van.
I always want to remember this night.
Happy Halloween, my friends!
