It's usually hard for us to get candid family photos, as we don't have family in town. Last Christmas went by with lots and lots of pictures of the girls, for example, and random shots of Mommy or Daddy...but no pictures of the four of us.
Because of the nature of Halloween, though...that there's a window of time during which everyone and his brother / uncle / cousin / dog seem to be milling about our neighborhood...we have managed to con someone into taking a family photo of us each year.
The girls had such a fun evening! We practiced our trick-or-treating technique yesterday afternoon...we set up our stuffed animals around the den and pretended to go to each of their houses.
Trick or treat!
Thank you! Happy Halloween!
We went to see six or eight of our closest neighbors, and the girls did great, as rehearsed (with a little prompting here and there).
In comparison to last year, they walked with such confidence and enjoyed seeing all the sights. Their favorite costumes were those worn by doggies...they'd squeal in delight!
We delivered our cookies and picked up a few pieces of candy in exchange. After the girls had their supper, I let them split a snack size Kit-Kat.
And in comparison to last year, the girls have developed much more of a sweet tooth. That was the candy I let them sample last year, as well...but they didn't like it! This year they devoured their piece with gusto. (They're my children, after all!)
It's incredible to reflect on the changes from year to year. Time certainly does fly quickly...but I sure am enjoying the ride!
