Happy Halloween

I thought the end of last week that there was no way that we were going to have Halloween again this year.  So I was so relieved when we were not too hard hit, but also very sad for those who were this time around.  I hope the towns that had to cancel tonight at least do it another night.  For us, we got to go tonight though.

So after dinner the kids got dressed in their costumes, Alyssa was having none of it, we went downstairs and grabbed our neighbor, and we hit the streets.  And we were far from alone out there too.  There were a ton of kids out there this year.  I think it was the most I have seen.

Once we got out there and Alyssa realized that people were giving her stuff her mood changed drastically.  That was a relief, but at the same time she wanted to walk everywhere on her own and the girl has got little legs and doesn't do stairs well.  It was quite the workout.  It was also quite a bit of fun. 

We carved our pumpkins yesterday with the kids home from school it was the perfect time.  Here are those 4 masterpieces...

4 little pumpkins sitting on the table

Here are the few pictures I got from tonight.

Got a picture of the ladybug Alyssa, AKA Cranky Bug

She only let us put that hood up for a second
So this was Alyssa's first official Trick or Treat.  I hope she remembers how much fun it was and is more willing to participate from the get go next year.
