Halloween night around here isn’t the real star of the show it’s trunk or treat that everyone looks forward to. It’s always the first event of the season and they get to be with all of their friends as they go around to the trunks for treats. This year there was also a carnival indoors. The kids had a great time playing games. Victoria had face paint stitches put on her face and Aidan thought he wanted to do that too but once it was his turn he froze up and wouldn’t get in the chair. He got into the doughnut on a string game big time though!
Chullain got to go around with some of his friends who were also all dressed. It’s great to see these man sized teenage boys get into the spirit of things and have some good clean fun. I loved his costume!
Victoria worked on her costume longer than anyone else. She decorated the yard for Halloween and did some decorating inside the house too. She’s really great about motivating everyone to get up and do things that are good for us.
Aidan was all excited to be swap thing and then we went to shop for Chullain’s costume and he decided he wanted to be a pirate. I wasn’t down with buying another costume so we talked and talked about how cool swap thing is. In the end he was happy to dress as swamp thing and had a great time.
Little Connor is getting big and was almost busting out of his 6 month sized monkey costume. I figured it was for just a few hours and would do. We dressed him up and he was so snuggly that he fell asleep in Daddy’s arms at the fair so they went and sat in the car for his nap which suited Bo just fine because it was mobbed with people.
The gangs all here in this one and I love it! I love having four children and I love that they’re all spread out and love being with one another. Happy Halloween everyone!!
