I try my best to enjoy the days of November. Not to rush this season. I try to really focus on Thanksgiving. Gratitude. Giving to others. Enjoying the moments. I hope you do to. I really do. Sometimes, I feel that the powers that be, i.e. retail stores, want to keep us thinking about buying stuff. Getting a head start. Staying ahead of the game. I just want to go against the flow this month. I want to devote three weeks to concentrating on what I already have. Then I will think about what I still "need". I promise Target, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Old Navy, and Toys R Us; I will not ignore you forever.
There is one thing needing to be done before we say goodbye to October. Share Trick or Treat pictures.
Last night, we went trick or treating for the first time in my children's lives...off base. It isn't a major thing but it's something for us...or maybe just me. I'm sentimental, what can I say?
Let's try this again! Last night, the kids got to go trick or treating. The boys dressed up as two characters from the wildly popular, Minecraft game. Others might call them blockheads or Lego guys or box head guys. Hopefully not in front of a 7-12 year old boy, if you don't want to be lectured on all things Minecraft.
The girl dressed up as a zombie Hot Dog vendor. Because teens think that is fun.
I think she mostly just wanted to dress her dog up.
He's a hot dog.
Love to see my kids having a great time and being kids. I suppose it makes walking three miles in the dark, carrying masks & costume pieces, and picking up spilled candy baskets (twice) worthwhile!
