Yes we celebrated Halloween!

I realize that my complete dearth of posts over the last week may have led you to believe that we fled the country or fell off a cliff, but no! We are here, busy, candy-buzzed, and enjoying the fall sunshine.

Here are a few pictures of my costumed, pre-candy overdosed children (I mentioned the horse costume, right?):

The worst part of Halloween is that it takes all darn day to get to the festivities. By then, kids are exhausted after being high on adrenaline since six in the morning. Thus, the slightly comatose look on Emma's face. She recovered quickly though, with the first drop of candy into the pumpkin buckets.

Her favorite part? Opening the door to "customers" at the end of our trick-or-treating. George's favorite treat? The notebook he was given by one of the neighbors. No joke. She offered candy or a spiral notebook, he threw his pumpkin at Jason, shouted "notebook", and that was it for the night! Emma chose a notebook, too. Gotta love my kids.

How fun are those costumes! Ahhhhh...I love Emma's hair it looks beautiful. She makes a GRREAT horse and George! Well what else would George be but a train engineer. Of course! They both look adorable. The best thing about Halloween is seeing how creative kids get with there costumes. Hey! I want a notebook!! LOL! LOL! LOL!

They look so cute Meg. Emma makes an adorable horse and look how grown up George looks as an engineer. Glad they both had a great time.
