A couple days ago we went to the annual Halloween Carnival and Trunk-O-Treat at our church. Our costumes hadn't arrived and so out came the dress-up bin. The kids put together such fun costumes that the thought crossed my mind that we shouldn't have purchased new ones.
Then the next day our UPS lady pulled up with packages in hand and a couple of treats for Lucy. Our new costumes were delivered. They were met with so much excitement that I realized how fun it is to order new costumes that will be used for dress-up throughout the coming years. Both ways work well with my crew.
We had a lovely Halloween with kids and candy, costumes and jack-o-lanterns. Yudai, our Japenese Exchange Student, has been so much fun to have here with us. He is helpful and kind. Polite and respectful. Fun and funny. I hope he enjoyed this fun American celebration.
Now it is off to bed for a tired Mama. It was an eventful day, all the munchkins are accounted for and tucked away for the night.
