One More Year...

Will this be Josh's last year Trick-or-Treating? Somehow I think not! Ever since he was little, he has always enjoyed dressing up, so why should his senior year be any different? No, it was not an "official" dress-up day at his school, but he went dressed as Samwise Gamgee regardless. I doubt he told any of his friends he was wearing my vest and sweater as part of his costume though. Doesn't he look cute? My boys have always loved Lord of the Rings as much or more than Star Wars, and both read the trilogy. We can't wait for The Hobbit to be released later this year.

And yes, Joshua not only wore this to school, but he went out trick-or-treating with his girlfriend, who of course, was dressed up as a Jedi!

Kaia was a Princess Genie (she insisted that the clashing orange socks were Halloween appropriate) and Jaelyn was a Scary Cat. I don't think she looked very scary, but for some reason she really wanted to come off as scary and made a lot of hissing sounds!

The weather outside is not-so-nice, so I "volunteered" to stay home and hand out candy. My kids think it is funny that every year I tally the number of trick-or-treaters that come by our house. This is due to fond memories of Halloweens spent at my grandparents, and that is something they always did. Our numbers are down tonight, probably due to the weather, but this is what my tally looks like so far:

Speaking of weather, my heart goes out to all the families affected by Hurricane Sandy. Wish life was "normal" for them tonight, and praying that things look brighter soon.

Shh...don't tell him, but Josh and his girlfriend look absolutely adorable!!!!!

And the girls are pretty stinkin' cute too. I'm with ya, though. Jaelyn isn't too scary. Scary cute. Yes.;) And Kaia's socks are hilarious.

Well, this is the second year in a row that my niece in Connecticut hasn't been able to trick or treat because of hurricanes. Last year they had a make up day. They are still without power and no make up day. :(
