Happy Halloween!

I can go two different ways on this post. One being, how today was so gloomy and windy with the forecast of rain, could ruin everything. It even sprinkled right when I walked out to take pictures. But 45 minutes before we were suppose to go, my prayers were answered..... or two.....

Today we ditched our Halloween tradition and joined in the good old fun of Trick-or-Treating. We started off with Boo at the Zoo, which was fun and surprisingly not packed. Then while I fixed dinner, Jake took the kids to some houses around our neck of the woods. (I am still not allowed to lift Katanya, so Jake got the responsibility of being the chauffeur.) The kids think they got tons of candy, (reality...just enough) but loved everything. Since I made Cruz be the 18th century beau (he didn't really care), after we were done tonight, I promised him that next year he can be whatever he wants. He's already talking about dinosaurs....

P.S. Did I mention how my brother and his wife came up for the weekend. This is a record for him....2 visits within 6 weeks. He picked the right girl.

You're very motivated in the costume department. All I did was a sinkin' poodle skirt, and that was plenty!
