Halloween

I honestly think that Halloween is a very close second in children's favorite holidays behind Christmas. Both Tyler and Emma had been anxiously awaiting the day that they could go door to door and receive tons of candy.
We were pretty much done moving out of the old house by that night so we got to trick or treat in our new neighborhood. We are blessed to have moved in to a wonderful community filled with kids. In fact, one of Tyler's classmates lives right around the corner so they were kind enough to include us in their group for the evening and even introduced us to ALL of the neighbors. It was quite a site seeing around 13 boys running like mad men and little Miss Emma going as fast as her little legs would carry her trying to keep up with them.
I didn't take that many pictures but here are a few from the night.
Emma didn't look quite as haggard by the end of the night as she did last year but you can tell she is pretty done with it by the time this picture was taken!
The best part of Halloween for me is the week after when all of the costumes go to 75% off and I get to replenish the kid's dress-up boxes!

I always do the same thing and buy out the costumes for the girls!! Always a hit and I love to get them for so cheap! Maelynn is already talking about what she is going to be next year!
