It's Halloween Time

It's that time of year again, Harvest and Halloween time. Now while Halloween was never really celebrated in our home when I was a kid (not that I missed it, I don't DO scary), I try to make it fun and safe for our kids. I know they enjoy getting to dress up and get candy as all kids do, so while it doesn't have the most redeemable of reputations, it's fun to see the kids excited when Halloween comes around.

We braved the Harvest party at our church tonight. They have different activities in all the kid's Sunday school rooms (photographers, carnival games, free hot dogs and chips, and of course, candy). Ethan insisted in being Anikan Skywalker this year, of course. Reagan decided she wanted to be a kitty (thank goodness she didn't choose a princess). :) Here's some pics of our night, and tomorrow night is the big Trick or Treat rounds with Daddy, a job I am more than happy to relinquish to him.

Reagan's showing off her kitty tail.

She was so excited to wear makeup.

Very serious and in character.

At the church, of course posing for the photographer.

Hmmmm, are we done yet?

Ethan roasting a marshmallow in front of a fake fire in the "Camping" room.

And that was our night. After a little over an hour of weaving through the crowds, I was MORE than ready to head home.
