Time flies when you're having fun, right? I guess having 4 kids in an 8 year span will make time fly by, too. It feels like I just had my first baby. That first baby is turning 11 in a few weeks and my actual baby is already 2! And THAT'S how a decade of Trick or Treating passes by in the blink of an eye.
My kids love Halloween, and they love to choose their own costumes. Once they have their own opinions, their costume choice is up to them. As much as I would love to do a theme, it's not fair for me to make them wear something they don't want to. Instead, I embrace their choices (and often poor quality store bought costumes) and enjoy watching them smile!
The magic of Halloween is fleeting, so I'll do anything to see those smiles. Trust me. Trick or Treating will all too soon be a thing of the past for my tween.
Here's a quick peek at Halloween through the years:
Yep. The skunk was, by far, my favorite!!!
The pea pod was awesome, but I adored her bunny costume!
Liam was the Not-So-Big-Bad-Wolf for his first Halloween, but he wore the pea pod costume for a few other Trick or Treating events that year!
As for this year? There isn't a theme in any way, shape, or form! Stay tuned...
