Jasmine seemed to have a blast. I think she could feel the energy from the older kids as they skipped alongside their parents, eagerly pulling them from store to store. It was so exciting being in the midst of all that happiness. I guess as adults we sometimes forget what it's like not to be in a constant state of worry.
I decided to retire my Superwoman costume this year and try out Batgirl. I was not impressed. I'll definitely be switching back to Superwoman. Or maybe Wonder Woman...huummm we'll see. James decided to go as, well, himself. How original. *Insert sarcasm here*
I loved every second of our adventure. Once we arrived home, we decided to lounge around the house in our costumes waiting for the trick-or-treaters to show up. I was actually a bit disappointed with the turn out. I guess it's a good thing that I decided to put back that last bag of Snickers. I decided instead to get this adorable little individual packages of Halloween shortbread cookies. However, I don't think the children appreciated my attempts to impart my healthy lifestyle on them. They were not happy campers. I like to think that when they get older and aren't obese, they'll reflect on their past and realize that I was just looking out for them. Or not.
Anyhow, I didn't go all out decorating. I'm saving all of my energy for Christmas. And believe me, that's going to take A LOT of energy. I did manage to sneak in one quick project. The little ghost jugs that you see in the photo collage below this. It was super easy. Super cheap. And super fun. Definitely my kind of project. Jasmine helped of course. She drank two gallons of milk in a few days to free up those jugs. Hard work right?
