Halloween Fun

This Halloween was fun and busy like all Halloweens are. Bradley got to walk to school in his costume and he was very excited. He really wanted to be Indiana Jones for Halloween, but since our Target was out and I didn't want to order one for $40 online, he agreed to be a "Bony Jack Sparrow" (much cheaper!). I think he looked great and he ended up loving it. Dan was able to get off early and went with me to the Costume Parade at his elementary school. When we got home I quickly made some yummy chicken noodle soup and pumpkin muffins which we had to eat at 4:00 to be on time to our trunk or treat. We had such a great time and I think everyone really loved being outside (normally we do it in the cultural hall). The weather was perfect. After that we decided to take the kids to a few houses to get the "real" trick or treat experience, but Kylie and Ben only lasted 2 blocks before they were done. When we got home they all sorted their candy into piles (why, I don't know), chose one piece and then off to bed. Whew, what a night!
