Halloween weekend was fun, but so busy that I still feel like I’m behind. We spent Friday night with my Dad and his wife, then Saturday we headed up to my sister’s house and pretty much spent the rest of the weekend there.
The kids got to Trick or Treat with their cousins through my sister’s neighborhood. We had an alien, Woody and Buzz Lightyear (from Toy Story), Mickey and Minnie, and my little princess. I couldn’t even keep up with Zach (though I was lagging behind a bit waiting on tiny princess legs to catch up). Evie finally figured out what was going on about 2/3 of the way through and started trying to push her way through the boys so she could get to the door and say “Tick ‘o’ Teet!”
At one point, Evie started asking for her Aunt Tanya. When I pointed ahead of us and told her that Tanya was way up there, she looked up at me, said “Run, Run!” and started running to catch up. Maybe you had to be there, but I think it was pretty much the cutest thing ever. She kept yelling, “Running, Running!” until we caught up. (So maybe it was cuter if you could actually hear her and see her little face light up as she ran.)
I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t get some better pictures of the kids in their costumes, but it was rather crazy with all six kids running around. I do seem to be missing a few that I thought were uploaded to flickr though, so I guess I’m going to have to check my camera again for the rest.
