These days, I place dressing my kids in their costumes second only to getting them dressed for the snow. Both are tasks I rather despise. It is getting easier now that they're older, but then there's still young Matthew.
See what I mean? Click on that picture to get the full effect.
This year I spent zero dollars on costumes, but you could probably guess that already.
Ann- black cat, a hand me down from Mary last year.
Mary- Katniss, from The Hunger Games.
Billy- a sad attempt at "Maroon 5" (there's a number 5 on his shirt)
Earlier in the day was a little more pleasant. The elementary school had their parade and parties. I made "fingers."
I got to hang out with Matthew's class.
Later, for trick or treating we headed to our friend's neighborhood and the kids had a blast.
Dad even made it back in town early enough to meet us on our route.
I guess Halloween isn't so bad. Maybe it's the fact that I know these days are slipping away. How much longer will all five of them be trick or treating? This may have been the last time.
On that sad note, I'm going to take my depressed self and go eat twelve Hershey bars.
