Halloween

We had such a good time for Halloween. Josh got to dress up at school and there was a Halloween party and costume parade at school.

Joshua's Class - Halloween party

After school, we went home and I put together my Queen Bee costume and we left to go visit MeeMee and DeeDee. Joshua got a Pirates of the Carribbean Bath/Shaving set from them. He promptly disappeared to their bathroom where he tested out the shaving cream. We knew from the shaving cream he left on his ear!!


From there we went to Taco Bell for dinner and tacos for Grandmother. We had a nice time at the nursing home. We left there and headed to church where we met up with Kevin (he had just gotten home from a work trip to Memphis). We had a great time trunk or treating there. It was good to see our friends Troy and Betsy and their daughter Ella. Isn't she CUTE???? We also saw Carah, Cate and Mollie Beth, who were all dressed like the princesses they are. They were too cute, as well!

We also met up with the Gudinos there, and decided when we were done to go trick or treating at the Crossings, a neighborhood near our house. The kids trick or treated until 9:00 and then we went home.

When we got home, the official "bounty sorting" began. Josh is almost as compulsive about sorting the candy into appropriate "piles" as I was as a child. All candy bars together, gum together, etc. After the sorting, we all went to bed. Long day, fun day! Halloween has always been one of my most favorite "holidays". It still is. I love to dress up; I love letting Josh dress up and get candy. It was one of my favorites as a child, too!
