Then on Monday we experienced what I would call the quintessential neighborhood Halloween! TONS of Kids, TONS of houses decorated and everyone sitting outside with neighbors to pass out candy, and hot dogs, and hot cocoa and jello shots.... just so much fun! We were a slow moving group, we took our time as kids talked to everyone and sang to themselves and stopped to admire others decorations... so we did not come home with a CRAZY amount of candy, but I can see in a couple of years when the kids legs finally grow that they will come home with sackfuls!
It really was a great night. And we even got Meeka to dress up!! It only took ALL DAY of trying to convince her that she could get some candy if she dressed up. And in the end she did it!! We had them put their jammies on under their costumes and at the end of the night everyone got 1 piece of candy and went straight to bed...after brushing their teeth of course!
I love the memories that Halloween creates!
They will last a lifetime!

|Logan carved his own...with a little help at the end. He chose a gravestone and hand.|
|Melina did a pretty good job carving too! Melina chose a spider.|
|Meeka liked to draw with markers on the pumpkin. She chose a ghost.|
