Halloween 2009!!!

We had a great Halloween this year. Samantha has an ear infection and it was raining so we didn't get to stay out too long, but the houses we go to are so great. A couple of them have bags ready specifically for our four kids every year...especially Pat and Jack. Then there's Kathy and Dennis who actually let each one of the girls pick out a Halloween decoration from their house. There's a picture here of the kids with these great neighbors. We are so lucky to live on Callaway Road. I'm laughing while I'm typing this because Samantha's little voice sounds so funny. Her cold is beginning to get better, but she still doesn't sound like herself. Destiny wore a Zoot Suit and sported a Tommy Gun. Sabrina was a charm school witch. Samantha was a Barbie Princess and Michael was a monster. I think this is probably the last year we'll get to trick or treat with Michael. I guess by this time next year he'll be off on his own for the night. Maybe he'll go one more time with all of us since it'll be Amelia's first year. We went to Jennifer and Robbie Baker's house for a Halloween party. It was a little difficult to hang out with Jennifer and be the designated driver. She's my party buddy. We're going to have to have a girl's trip to Vegas after the baby is born. The witch pumpkin was my group's contibution to the Halloween pumpkin contest at DHL. Peyton had a really great time doing the pumpkins with the kids this year. Sabrina wanted hers to be look surprised. She explained to Peyt that he needed to make the mouth a circle to show this emotion. Samantha wanted one with a really big SMILE(just like the smiley faces she draws) and Destiny wanted a vampire jack o lantern. The kids are still on a candy high today. Oh only comes once a year.
