We celebrated big time this year! On Friday night, the kid's school had a Trunk or Treat where there is a service at the church (John-Paul sang in the choir) followed by trick or treating in the parking lot (hence the "trunk"). I think it's a healthy way to celebrate the holiday...a little secular and a little holy :)
Today we had a birthday party for the October Birthday babies, then a Halloween Parade, and finally we went Trick or Treating at a couple neighborhood houses. Tomorrow at school, they get to dress up as saints for All Saints Day. Pictures of that will come, but for now, enjoy these spooky sights from today's festivities:
John-Paul is a race car driver
Eamon is Batman
I love my boys.
And my Ballerina girl.
I was supposed to be Jane Fonda circa 1985. I even had a leotard to wear, but chickened out at the last minute. I still look 80s-ish, right?
After I put on all my 80's makeup...John-Paul said: Mom, you should look like that everyday! You look good! (I'm scared for what kind of girl he's going to bring home!)
OK, my husband is awesome. He put on this wig and hot pink (short!) shorts and a tank top to become Richard Simmons. He would not let me take a picture of the outfit for fear of students finding it. But, he definitely rocked it!
Wilma Flinstone and Bam-Bam
Two Beautiful Ballerinas, one willing to pose, and the other...not so much.
My Goddaughter, Bridget was Pebbles. She is wearing the medal from the 5K she ran earlier today, in which she placed 3rd for her age group (up to 12). She just turned 8 years old!

The dollhouse is a favorite toy.
