Happy Halloween!

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” ~Dr. Seuss

“It’s opener, out there, in the wide, open air.” ~Dr. Seuss

The stories and quotes from Dr. Seuss have been such an inspiration for us this year that it seemed only natural to continue our Dr. Seuss theme on Halloween. The kids are such good sports when it comes to dressing up. William had already planned on being The Cat in the Hat, so the twins fell into the role of Thing 1 and Thing 2 very easily. Some sweat pants and shirts, white fabric, a striped hat and a couple of blue wigs and we were all set. They looked great once we had it all put together. Trick-or-Treating was a hit as usual and the kids all brought home enough candy to sink a battle ship, but I suppose that is how it should be!

Happy Halloween!!

A Night of Tricks and Treats

I love how excited the kids get when Halloween rolls around. To them, nothing is more exciting than being able to go around the neighborhood gathering candy. Ah, the innocence of youth.


Rob took them trick-or-treating in the neighborhood behind the house. When I called them around 7:45, they were hitting their last block before heading home. They had a blast. They even stopped by to see me at work on their way home and brought me some candy. When I made my way home, they had left me a pile on the table. Such sweet kids.

I guess now it is time for them  to start talking about what they want to be next year. They will change their minds a million times, but that is part of the fun. Hope everyone had a safe Halloween. Happy November!
