Halloween day had been anticipated for quite some time. Especially since the kids began to suspect that Grandma and Grandpa were going to get their costumes. This was after much questioning from Grandpa about what they wanted to be for Halloween. Mira had wanted to be Fancy Nancy last year, but it never happened. This was her year! Grandma took her out and went crazy. Look at that getup. Doesn't get any cuter! She felt pretty special.
Toward the end of the evening, we were talking together about the Jazz tickets Chad still had. Apparently, Chad could see in Michael's eyes that he really wanted to go, but didn't have someone to go with. Kind-hearted Chad, not one to leave somone in the lurch, offered himself as a partner to the game. Sacrifice is what it's all about. Right, Chad? :) So Mom and I wrapped up trick-or-treating with the younger ones. Colin and Micah were out with Orion and Pheonix and didn't get back til 9:15. The girls and I watched Addams Family and ate candy. The boys say they were the last ones out. I let them stay up and eat some of their candy and watch a movie. They didn't get to bed until 10:45. Too bad it's a school night!
