spooky ..

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love sweets. I love trick-or-treating. And I LOVE dressing up (Shocking, right? I'm sure that you'd never guess that by looking at my running apparel ...) In fact, I already have the girls' costumes for NEXT YEAR already picked out. You might say that I am mildly obsessed. But, my obsessions are not important. What is important is that my kids had a blast yesterday.

We started the day with some pumpkin carving (which was messier than I would have liked). Then after a quick nap for Dilly (who's sleeping like a rock in her new bed), we headed out to Dizzle's soccer game, where she scored her FIRST GOAL EVER! It was an awesome moment. The look of surprise on her face was CLASSIC. And just moments after the shock wore off, she scored ANOTHER GOAL. It was total rock star material.

After the game, we headed over to Dizzle's BFF's house for our traditional Halloween celebration and trick-or-treating. For the girls, it was pretty much heaven. Both Dizzle and Doodle got to chill with their best friends. They stocked up on WAY TO MUCH candy. And they laughed the entire time. It was fantastic. Here, take a look at some of my favorite shots from the day ...

So fun! Cute pics. My kids couldn't wait to get out there trick or treating. I'm glad they are still little and didn't think anything of it that we stopped after one long street...they were just so excited to get home to eat some candy. My five year old was dressed up as Junie B. Jones but none of my friends without a 5-7 year old had a clue who she was (a popular children's book character). Happy Monday! Good to see your pics.
