Obligatory Halloween Pics

I have much to say. It was a sad and good and bad week. Maybe I can write about it tomorrow. But for now, HALLOWEEN!! My kids have lost the true spirit of Halloween, or maybe they never had it. They didn't run from house to house knocking over little dinosaurs and vampires in their haste. They didn't eat half their candy before even getting home. They didn't want to go to "one more house". When we got home they gave me their bags and told me I could combine them into one (or five) big bowls. Sharing their candy and not even weighing it? They didn't take the time to sort it or find which was the biggest. They didn't care if I ate all the best ones. I just did. I didn't have to pretend to "check it" or call "mom tax" or anything. It was pathetic. I'm not even proud of them. I am sad. 

I love Halloween.

At least they looked the part.



Mason never got the chance to "clean the boat". Unfortunate. Why is this underlined?


Cams is a very happy pirate. I don't know why. No candy on Halloween. I'd be a jerk pirate.


Sisi was a British Supergirl. Why? Because it's an English tradition. Whatever that means.

Shelby there is hope! Last year my boys did not even go trick or treating we were so sad. This year they both not only went but they sorted and traded candy and had a grand time doing it!

Sheylby! Your kiddos are sooo cute!!!! Douglas was just saying how Halloween isn't quite what it used to be. He said that if halloween ever gets to the point that no kids go out, he said that he would decorate our house and have friends over and go from door to door in our house. Haha. Aw,I hope that you are doing ok. I know it has been a rough few weeks. We are thinking of you!

Happy halloween- the kids look great. My only kid old enough to trick-or-treat, was much the same- took a small bag when he had it half full said that he had enough. Whatever?
I'm sorry for all the sad stuff in the week.

Happy Halloween! I love Mason pirate's flip flops. For some reason it makes him look even more cool.
