Happy Halloween!

This is my crew - ages 6 and 4.
 
Below is a picture of our oldest child ;-)
 
We've been celebrating with church and fall festivals, dance class parties, pumpkin decorating contests, costume contests, and school parties (I'm so candied out!). 
 
Thanks to a forecast of 100% rain for Halloween night, the girls will probably be enjoying a popcorn and movie fest in place of the usual visit to friends and family.
 






Now that the temperatures are finally dropping I just want to stay home cuddled up with a good book. (For a list of ten of my hauntingly good picks, see here.)

We're scheduled for rain, too. We always go over to my mom's for Halloween festivities because she lives in the old neighborhood where children still go door-to-door. We still plan to go, but I don't know how many kids we'll get in the rain!

Aye matey! Happy Halloween! It's a cold n' rainy Halloween here too. Winter coats over costumes, it's always the way in Michigan. Boo!
