Trick or Treat

I could not resist scrapping these photos right away. We had so much fun and their smiles tell the story. Ethan has wanted to be a knight for a really long time. We actually bought his knight attire several months ago. Nadia, the little princess, wanted to be a princess. I loved the purple dress. Ben's costume was the most fun. I told him that he could have the money if I did not have to buy him a costume. For the last several weeks, he debated his costume. At 1 point he wanted to be a box, next day he was just going to dress as silly as he could be. He finally settled on being a wizard, by wearing my silk robe and a pointed hat. I thought it was perfect.

The boys could hardly wait to hit the streets for Trick or Treat. Nadia was not sure, she thought it might be more fun to stay at home. She changed her mind after the first house gave her a sucker! It was so fun to watch her excitement and wonder. I think she was amazed that people were giving her candy. She was the first person up to the next door and the first to run back and tell us what treasure she just received.

All in all, we had a great night.

    Those outfits are so great!! Ben has always been creative and thoughtful. Those are good life skills to have. Nadia and Ethan look so much older. I still imagine Ethan as a toddler. I hope you are enjoying your new home. Sista Rach.
