Here's how it all turned out:
Dylan and Caitlyn loved it, and I'm already thinking about all the fun things I might try next year!
Earlier today we made some trick or treat containers using empty milk jugs. We still have the plastic pumpkins Dylan and Caitlyn used last year but I thought these would be a fun activity for them to enjoy today. (I still fondly remember making some when I was a kid, along with my brothers and our neighborhood friends.) These were so simple, yet they had so much fun making them!
We all really enjoyed going out trick or treating in our neighborhood tonight. I wanted to get some pictures of the kids in their costumes, but Meghan was not the least bit cooperative! At one point I finally decided, rather smugly, that if I simply held her she would settle down and have her picture taken. Wrong! But here, at least, is a rarity: a photo of me and all three of my adorable children!
