All Hallows Eve

Halloween is so much fun with kids!!

Upon returning home from the "Trunk-or Treat" I stuck my head in the kids Halloween bags and took in a big whiff of their candy. The smell instantly brought me back to the glory days of Trick-or Treating at Grandma Hart's house. We would bring in our full pillow cases and poor them out all over the floor to examine our loot. After running from house to house for two hours we deserved the pig out session that followed. It's fun reliving the excitement of the holidays through your children.

Earlier in the month we went up to see Heidi and Donnie. In October the Birmingham Zoo hosts "Boo at the Zoo"!! You get to go to the Zoo at night. It was super fun with games, candy, a haunted carousel, and train ride.

Because of Halloween being on Sunday this year (too bad) we went to the "Trunk-or-Treat" at the church Saturday night. Rick made the kids stick their hands in the boxes and feel the "eyeballs and brains" before he would give them candy. No treat for you without a trick. Ha Ha Ha!!

The kids had just as much fun passing out candy on Halloween as they did "trick or treating" the night before. Here are two little videos we shot.

Fun times and cute kids! You guys look like super fun Halloween parents...I was like "NO more candy!! YOu can have one tomorrow...IF you're good." ok, maybe not quite that bad, but seriously the candy thing is becoming more and more of a hassle in my old age!!

Tell Heidi I say hi next time you talk to her.

Love the costumes! I totally caved and let my kids go trick or treating on the Sabbath. I know, I'm gonna burn. My punishment will be the ten pounds I'm gonna gain from eating all their candy.
