Halloween...go time!

We had a wonderful Halloween! For starters, the weather was incredible that day..perfect for the little trick-or-treaters.
We worked out in the morning, and slugged around that afternoon. Then, it was off to a party with a bunch (30+) of our good friends where we ate some yummy soup, salads and breadsticks. Adri was so brave to let us all crash in her house. Thanks Adri!
Then we sent the pack of kids and dads out the door for trick-or-treating. And believe me, it was a BIG pack.

Can you see Mary's bright pink wings?

Yes, there were that many kids. Add two parents for each group of kids, and it makes for a great time and a big party.

I am sure they cleaned out many candy bowls.
The ladies talked it up until the kiddos started arriving back with their "loot." I couldn't believe all of the King Size candy bars the kids had...seriously! Don't worry, Ben and I got them all safely out of the kids buckets and into a secret hiding place. They like the other stuff anyway, right?
When we got back from the party, we hurried and turned on our ghost by the door that yells and screams and lights up. We set out all of our flickering orange candles on the steps, got out the glowing pumpkin and Mary made herself a nice little seat with the candy bucket. We had a bunch of trick-or-treaters stop by, and Mary loved being the one "in charge" of the candy.
Once the bucket was empty, it was lights out, and this pregnant and incredibly tired momma and her sugar filled happy kids were asleep before anyone could say "Boo!"
Yet another awesome Halloween.

Sounds like a great Halloween. That is a huge group! These last two years I've been more excited about Halloween because I get to take my kid out to trick-or-treat. I think this is way more fun as a parent.
