Halloween 2015

(Yes, I know this post is very, very late.)

Our Halloween festivities took place over two nights this year.

Abby’s first middle school dance was Friday night.  She wanted to be a Homecoming Queen.  I didn’t argue because that means we get multiple wears out of the dress…church, school, family pictures…and the shoes.

She had a fabulous time at her very first dance…even though her dad was a CHAPERONE!?!  Dad survived his first middle school dance too 🙂  On Halloween, Abby went trick-or-treating with friends from her basketball team and had oodles of fun (but appreciated that Halloween in #nwpa can be pretty chilly).

We opted not to let Katie and Jeb pick costumes this year.  Last year, we had über meltdowns in the minutes leading up to trick-or-treating from a devastated ladybug and a grumpy pumpkin.  Mike selected perfect costumes for each of them…and they were a HUGE hit.  The big reveal took place after dinner and Elsa and Batman were thrilled.

We made the rounds and the kids actually asked to come home first.  They had a great time and Elsa and Batman have made repeat appearances around the house since Halloween.  (As has the glitter all over Elsa’s dress.  And I mean all over.)
