For all the fun and festivities of Halloween why am I so wickedly pleased when it is all . finally. over?!
|Cousins in Costume...and one Uncle who tried in vain to escape the confines of the camera lens.|
We had an exciting family party complete with carnival booths, games, pinata, a spooky story, and an even spookier wagon ride through the Haunted Fields around Grandma and Grandpa's House.
We gave out around 200 pieces of candy. Gone are the days of walking around as a family! The kids have friends. Back at home they counted their loot:
Brynn and Kate came out winners with 106 pieces, Adrie a close second at 99 and Cannon, 25. And to quote him, " Now it's 24 cuz I just ate another one mom."
Lastly, we started another messy but memorable tradition this year which happens to sum up my feelings for the holiday in general: Smashing Pumpkins.
