Well our Halloween is over and done with it. And, frankly, I couldn't be happier. While the church's trunk-or-treat is a grand idea, it's just chaos for me and my family. Well at least for Ben and me. I'm sure the boys loved it all. But I could definitely do without it. Not to say the activities committee didn't do a fantastic job - because they are fantastic and everything they do is fantastic - but managing my three kiddos there is not all that enjoyable. Anyways, how's that for a downer?
While I'm "downing," I'll mention how bummed I was with the kids' outfits - well not Miles'. Ben made his and it turned out pretty great. Miles was adamant on being Mars Rover. As in "the space thingy that landed on Mars." So I thought it would be fun to make Jonas and Emmy aliens. We ended up not painting their faces green and so they just looked like. . .? I don't know? Most people thought Emmy was just "the cutest bug." I didn't correct them.
But I did have a yummy whole-wheat roll at the church dinner and that made things a little better for me.
Anyways, enjoy the pics because I am done halloweening for this year. :)
That's my girl. (p.s. check out our string-o-ghosts in the background. I cut them all out of paper-plates and Miles drew each one. That was pretty fun! Miles LOVED it.
The best trick-or-treating treat ever. What a brilliant idea. My kids LOVED these and thought they were pretty much the funniest things on earth when they looked in the mirror.
