After much deliberation and many hours of listing the pro’s and con’s of every costume imaginable, Billy and I finally chose Brooke’s Halloween costume… a LOBSTER. I have a feeling that we are more excited about it than she is. I have looked forward to dressing up my kids for Halloween for my entire life and I can’t even put it into words how excited I was to put this on her.
She figured out how to use those claws of hers.
We went to a Halloween party at our church and Billy and I enjoyed every second of showing Brooke off. There was a costume parade, lots of food and Halloween movies playing.
I always take one of everything at potlucks because that is the polite thing to do… wouldn’t want to hurt anyones feeling…. okay, my real motivation behind this is that I want to try everything on the table and so I do.
I ended up bringing these cookies but they are way too flat to share the recipe with you. I am still on the search for the world’s best chocolate chip cookie recipe, it is hard work.
After dinner they do a thing called ‘Trunk-or-Treat.’ Everyone decorates their cars and lines them up in rows and the kids go around to each trunk to get candy.
Brooke’s favorite treat was the pixie stick.
I am very thankful at this time that Brooke cannot eat anything but milk. My candy stash has now doubled thanks to my little lobster.
Did anyone else’s dad charge daddy tax after you went trick-or-treating? My dad would always charge at least 20% when we got home and he always took the Dots and Baby Ruths:) I will just have to mail him his tax this year.
Enjoy your long run or race this weekend… hopefully I will be out there running next weekend but this morning I will be staying in pjs until noon and making pancakes while icing my back:)
What are you going to be for Halloween this year? Do you dress up every year?
What is your weekend run!?!?! Let me live through you:)
