"The Best Halloween EVER!"

That was one of the kids' comments Halloween night . . .  they were right, it was just one of those magical, picture perfect Halloween weekends when everything fell into place and everyone was happy and content.  I think it was because the holiday fell on a Saturday, so we had time to relax and really enjoy the kids and the excitement.  Believe me, we've had complete flops in the past when it came to Halloween!

The fun began with the little girls' elementary parade Thursday morning, followed by the Jr. High's annual Halloween dance concert that evening where Ryan and Caroline both participated, then a lovely Friday evening spent with Sophie and good friends at a neighborhood spook-alley while the big kids attended Halloween parties with their own friends, then Halloween day: the girls' piano recital in the morning, making costumes and playing tennis with Caroline in the afternoon, then an evening of trick-or-treating under a full moon and coming home to our traditional roasted pumkin seeds and cider, and finally wrapping up the day with trips to the older kids' friends homes to pick them up and listening to their tales of the evening on the ride home.

Great memories . . . wish I could freeze time on nights like these.
