Whew! I am so glad Halloween is over. Somehow it has turned into a four day affair around here and all of us are exhausted (even the always energetic Liam who had trouble waking up this morning). But before you judge me for overindulging my children when it comes to this candy company sponsored holiday, I simply couldn't say no to any of the activities.
First, there was the Halloween carnival at Sydney's school:
And then the kids trick-or-treated at The Bank. This is the only time I get to chat with Ryan's coworkers, so we always go on this one. Of course, the only pictures I got were of the kids swarming one of the 30 bowls of candy lining the hallways of The Bank:
Then the boys decorated pumpkins pre-school style:
And then we had our church's Halloween carnival. Unfortunately we didn't get a lot of good pictures there.
And, finally, the traditional neighborhood trick or treating.
Sydney, the cowgirl:
Liam, aka Spiderman:
And Evan, our little dinosaur:
Despite giving away a ton of candy at the above events, we were left with two huge bags full of the sugary stuff. I'm going to let the kids keep a little bit of it and then I'm going to box up the rest of it and send it to our adopted soldier overseas. I figure the army can afford the dental bills. :)
