Well Halloween 2011 has come and gone. We survived the long day of waiting since Brooke did not have school (those clever school Principals.....).
They were both very into it this year. Madeline even said "Trick or Treat!" when arriving at people's doors! She also loved collecting the candy in her basket and would not let us hold it at all!
Brooke did well and also got a few lessons in manners this year: Always say thank you. Don't walk on people's lawns. Don't grab candy out of people's hands. If someone left a bucket of candy out, only take one (thank you to the group of older kids who emptied most of them out by 5pm. Jerks.).
Oh and we had yet ANOTHER picture miracle today. I hope this streak lasts!
Here they are last year:
and this year!:
Now wish me luck since I am taking my kids for professional photos the day after Halloween. What was I thinking???
