Sunday afternoon we had our Trick-or-Treat Night Feast...
We dined on Mummy Dogs, Witches Brew Macaroni and Cheese, Zombie Brain Mandarin Oranges, and Potato Graveyard Chips. : )
Then it was time to get into costume!
This year my Cinderella transformed into Buzz Lightyear!
And her awesome sister and brother dressed up to take her house to house.
When that was finished, we came home and commenced the annual Dumping of the Candy!
Which is followed by the sorting, trading, and bagging the yucky stuff for Dad to take to work. : )
Halloween Day we did some fun schoolwork, then prepared for our Halloween Dinner!
We had Candy Corn Pizza, chips, and Orange Kool-Aid, of course.
Peyton and Flynn made the most delicious Halloween cupcakes for dessert.
And for breakfast the next day too. : )
It was a wonderful Halloween, and as I watched my kids walk through the piles of crunchy, fallen leaves, swinging plastic buckets of candy, I felt a bit sentimental. I longed to be a kid again, doing that same thing with my sisters, before running home to peel off our costumes and start trading our candy.
And I suppose that is why I love this time of year so much. I love my memories, and even more so, I love watching my dear children making memories of their own. : )
Once more...until next year, my friends...
