Happy Halloween

Well as Halloween comes to a close, I thought it would be fun to post some pictures of the kids in their costumes. Ethan didn't get a costume this year because he can't go anywhere. Spencer was a safari explorer, Emily was a witch (the exact costume that my Mom made me in the 2nd grade), and Gavin was Bob the Builder.

Tim stayed home with Ethan and I took the 3 trick or treaters to the nursing home up the street which was perfect for Gavin. You get a load of treats in just one stop. I think it is good for the residents as well as for the kids. The residents get to see all of the children in their fun costumes and the kids are exposed to a population that may be intimidating under different circumstances.

After we we left the care center I took the kids up to my parents house to let them see the kids in their costumes. We didn't stay long because as Spencer says, " time is candy". We then dropped off Gavin back at the house with Tim and then I took the older 2 kids around our neighborhood.

Needless to say, we have way more candy than anyone of us needs. Although my feet are sore, it was actually fun to walk the streets and see where people live. We are still trying to get to know everyone. As fun as it was, I am glad it's over and I am going to talk Tim into rubbing my feet. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

I love the nursing home idea! We will have to try that next year. Love the cute pics of your Halloweeners.
