I think that we had a pretty good Halloween this year. Emma really enjoyed watching the Halloween cartoons and reading the Halloween books from the library. She really got it this year.
We had a ward Halloween party on Friday night. It was a fun little shin-dig. They blocked off some streets on our neighborhood. They had fun games in the park, and then they had chili, hot dogs, and cornbread in a little culdesac. Our kids were then able to go Trick-or-Treating at the houses around the area. It was a lot of fun, and it got them prepared for the Saturday night greed fest.
Saturday Emma wanted to go Trick-Or-Treating as soon as she woke up. She was upset that she had to wait until it got dark outside. We finally made it, and we were able to go out with several family and friends. Emma was so excited that she was able to keep up with the brutal pace that the older kids had. About 2 hours into it, she started to slow down and she couldn't hold her bag anymore due to it being so heavily laden with the good stuff. Brooks made it about 40 minutes and then we had a melt down. Too many people, and too much poking and proding him to go the right way. It was a really fun night, and I now know why my Mom never wanted to take us around the neighborhood for hours on end. You were a trooper Mom. I hope that you all had a Happy Halloween, and I hope that you covet my Edward pumpkin.
