Halloween 2016 Activities and Traditions11.01.2016
Halloween this year was simply the best! It was a little hectic because Dave and I had just gotten back from a trip to Northern California (more to come on that later!) late the night before. So, I ran a few errands yesterday morning to get a few things done that I wasn't able to do before we left. Luckily, I got everything done, and got back just before our friends Matt and Ali joined us for the night's festivities. By 4:00 PM Dave, Matt and the kids were outside carving pumpkins while I was preparing for our traditional Hallow's Eve dinner. Which alternates between chili in pumpkin bread bowls or pasta with pumpkin Alfredo sauce.
Dinner was delicious, and the littles especially loved the little Halloween favors I put on their plates!
Just as we were about finished eating, my brother Jason, his wife Elena, and their cute son, Cooper arrived up at our house to go trick-or-treating with everyone. So we quickly got the littles in their costumes (Isaac: Spider-Man, Emi: Snow White, and Zachary: Pirate) and then everyone was off for a night of candy collecting while me, Ali and Benson stayed behind to hand out candy.
By 8:30 PM everyone was back from trick-or-treating. We said goodbye to our family and friends, turned off the porch light, locked the door, and then Dave and I tag teamed to get the littles in bed by 9:30 so they wouldn't be too tired for school the next morning (does anyone else hate having Halloween on a weekday?!). And that was that!
Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween too!
