So yesterday was the holiday I dread most.  I'm just not a big fan of halloween.  I don't like spending money on costumes that get worn once.  I don't like my kids eating so much candy.  And I certainly don't like all the scary, ugly stuff that halloween entails.

But I was informed several weeks ago by my boys that we "have" to get a really cute costume for Emily.  So I listened!  I tried to get a Minnie Mouse costume on ebay (regular price at Disney Store $40 - I don't think so!)  That didn't work out, although I did manage to score a Transformer costume for Ben.  So off to Target we went.  I found an adorable Ladybug costume for $12!

So yesterday afternoon, I dressed Emily and the boys put on their costumes (and Jon went as a soccer ref, which is what he acually is every Saturday!)  We got some really cute photos.  Here's the only one I can show here.

We went for an early dinner at Chick-fil-A and visited Zach at work (he's working at a new family-friendly comic book store - he's paid in used comics for now, but he will probably be hired for real for the Christmas season).  Then we went to a Trunk-or-Treat at the church we used to attend.  Emily had a great time playing the little games and just loved that people kept giving her candy!  We got home just in time to start passing out candy to the trick-or-treaters.  Greg took the boys and Emily around our neighborhood.

So now we have too much candy.  And Emily now knows what candy is.  She loves smarties!

We managed to skip it this year... darn LOL. But I did buy the kids some candy since one little one was pretty sad about it... but it wasn't the pounds they normal have!
