Halloween Fun

This weekend, we had a great time celebrating Halloween! The kids always get excited when I bring out our "wheel of candy" and let them have a spin.
We went to a fun Halloween party and the kids had all sorts of yummy treats there! They also got to play some fun games and they participated in the trick or treat parade. Our little girl's favorite contest at the party was the pumpkin pie eating contest.
Although she didn't win, she still had a blast eating that delicious pie!
A tradition our family has for Halloween is spending the evening over at grandma and grandpa's house. I am so blessed to have my parents live so very close to us, and so the kids get to see them several times a week. Every Halloween, we go over there and order pizza. When it gets dark, the kids put on their costumes and we take them trick or treating around the neighborhood. Our little girl was a native american and our little boy was a cowboy.
Our oldest, for the first time, decided she did not want to dress up and go trick or treating. I felt a bit sad because I will miss seeing her choose a costume and get excited waiting to go to all the houses. She is growing up so fast. This year, she stayed back and handed out candy with grandpa. I love how close they are and she really enjoyed her job!
As you can see, it was a successful evening of candy collecting. We had lots of fun and can't wait to do it again next year!
