I've heard this over and over for the past couple of weeks, ever since the boys picked out their costumes and began marking days off on the calendar. They have no idea that Halloween involves ugly or scary things, only that it means costumes and candy. And when you're a kid, that means FUN, and lots of it!
Annalyse wasn't too keen on the ladybug hat, but once I introduced her to the antennae on her slippers, she was content to pick at those rather than try to yank off her hat.
You know, I'm all for fun decorations, but I'll never get the bones and witches and spiders and such. Tombstones aren't my thing when it comes to decorating. And I'm usually all about killing spiders I see near my house rather than decorating with them. But that's just me.
Officer Micah wasted no time in opening his candy and snacked away. And, Annalyse wasted no time in getting to Micah's pile as fast as her little legs would run.
Once kids were in bed, I slid into a hot bath while Grady relaxed with one hand holding the newspaper and the other hand inside a pumpkin bucket choosing which treat he wanted next.
