I know, I am still a little behind, but here's to catching up.
Every year our ward (church congregation) hosts a Trunk or Treat. It is really ideal for both parents and kids. The kids don't have to walk as far, as it is from car trunk to car trunk, and the parents get to sit at the back of their cars, close to other adults conversing and enjoying themselves. This year was no different. Other than E feeling a little under the weather, the night was fabulous. It was warmer than usual for this time of year, so no coats were necessary. The kids got to get dressed up in their costumes and had a wonderful time. Not to mention, they got to get and then eat a lot of candy.
(That's E dressed up as Superman - this is the only time he dressed up for Halloween)
Earlier in the day, K had her Halloween party for school. All of the kids dressed up for the day and they got to visit the Trick or Treat house. They had a great time. One funny thing from that morning. K, after putting on her dress said to me, "Mom, do you think that Princesses have breakfast?"
"Yes, K, I think they do."
"Well, which ones?"
"Does this princess want breakfast?"
"Yes. Do you think princesses have Pop Tarts?"
"Is that what you want?"
"Then that is what this Princess will get for Breakfast this morning."
I love the fact that she really thought when she put that dress on that she was a real princess.
