Trick or Treating

I am only going to admit this once, so hold on to your chairs, but by the time Halloween had finally arrived I was a little over it. Only a little though. Don't panic! I, Mindy, the lover of all things Halloween am STILL devoted to the holiday. I think that with the combination of crafting so far in advance and having our party earlier in the month it felt like Halloween had already come and gone. By the time the 31st had actually arrived I had been celebrating for a month and a half. That's okay though...it's not like I had much to complain about. (Well, putting away all of the decorations is never as fun as putting them out.) "You mean I have to watch Grace walk around and collect candy for me to eat? Ooohhh maannn!"

We kicked the night off by crashing a neighborhood cookout with our dear friends (and partners in crime) the Powers. We adults hung back as our children ran wild going from door to door soliciting all sorts of goodies for us to later pillage. This year Grace made the enlightening understanding that is the crux of Halloween nirvana, "You mean all I have to do is say 'trick or treat' and people give me fistfuls of candy?" Isn't Halloween magical?

As if the night could have gotten any better...it went ahead and did! We went to Mom and Pop's for some delicious broccoli and cheese soup with breadsticks. HEAVEN!

Halloween, you've done it again you fantastically wonderful holiday! Thank you for all of your magic and delight. There could be no better holiday to usher in my favorite time of year. Until we meet again! (Considering that it is now mid March...you'll be here all the sooner!)
