Happy Halloween!

Our trick or treaters! Johnny went out with his friends- he was a hot dog but I was unable to get a picture of him.

Our little ladybug!

Katie went as Swine Flu!

Our adorable trick or treaters! They were the only ones that came to our door- ;-(
I do miss seeing the other kids but for some reason they just don't venture over to our little driveway. I guess the kids nowadays are smarter- they go for the high volume spots!! Lots of houses = lots of candy!

She is already excited for next year!

The candy basket before- 

The grand finale- the counting of the candy!

The candy basket after- not much difference other that what our own children took! 


This was Sarah's first Halloween! She was very excited about it and thrilled that an American tradition revolved around candy!! She's liking America a lot- lately! I did try to explain Thanksgiving to her and she wasn't quite as thrilled about being thankful and eating a turkey dinner! But Halloween- it's the bomb!

At one point Sarah got really quiet. We could tell she was very nervous. She thought it might be too scary going out in the dark but once she found out that Daddy and Katie would not leave her side she felt better.

The evening was a huge hit!

I am LAUGHING at Katie's costume. That is the funniest thing EVER! And the little girls were DARLING! Kate sounds just like Sarah. She is our sweet tooth and LOVED the candy. I allowed each just 1 piece of candy last night. Kate picked M&M's and then literally sat with her pumpkin in her lap, looking at her candy until she went to bed! Last year Kate looked at her plate of Thanksgiving dinner and didn't eat one bite.
