Well, it has come and gone - the fun times of Halloween. So much anticipation and now it is over. But boy was it fun! We had a blast. This year was so fun for Ben. He got into it so much and enjoyed it all. We were one family full of superheroes. Green Lantern, Supergirl, Batgirl and Batman! Ben told us he wanted to be Batman so we all decided to don our superhero alter egos. Last night we went to grandparent's houses to show off costumes. Of course grandparents have more than just candy. At both houses the kids walk away with bags full of stuff. Everything from dolls - to books - to toys. It is crazy! We then went to the fall festival at church. Not the best of times. It is way to crowded and loud. We knew that from previous experiences but had to be reminded I guess. We did enjoy seeing our friends. Here are Kate and Isaac. Neither one of them look like they are having a good time.
We decided that next year we will just do our own festival with our friends. Matt got creative with his costume and made his own Green Lantern ring!
We actually went down our whole street and the one behind us because we were having such a great time. Ben also loved coming home and handing out candy. He enjoyed seeing all the costumes. We had a ton of trick or treaters. We went through 2 giant bowls of candy.
