Halloween was so much fun this year, especially after I convinced Andrew to dress up. It just won't be the same when he stops dressing up for Halloween. As an official teenager, he is not really into dressing up anymore but agreed to wear the cool gangster costume I got him. Between our church Halloween party, a fun dinner at home with the kids, the girls' class parties, and a teenager party, it was a very busy week. Abby was so excited to wear her Hermione costume to school because her friend Paige was also going to be Hermione. Emma was excited that she and I would be witches together. The boys were just happy to be getting candy while dressed up as Gandalf the Grey and a 20's gangster. We were all proud of Abby for trick or treating all the way around our neighborhood this year without getting too scared and wanting to go home after three houses. The younger three had fun trick or treating with some of their friends while Andrew had a blast trick or treating with some of his teenage friends.
