these pictures are from saturday night, when we went to a neighborhood halloween party.
who knows if this is what my kids will dress up as tonight, because they all love to change their minds daily when it comes to halloween costumes.
i just have them raid their dress up boxes to figure out what they will be.
so we had a count dracula, black cat, princess, tiger, spiderman/batman combo with daddy's snow gloves and a lion who was obviously trying to escape.
i was a cheerleader, while mr. anderson was a soccer player.
creative, i know.
listen, i know some don't approve of halloween. and while we don't practice any of the "evil" things associated with halloween, we have decided to embrace the "holiday".
what other day of the year do you have your neighbors knocking on your door every few minutes?
it's such a great opportunity to meet your neighbors---get to know them.
find out who they are, and most importantly, love them.
i love what my pastor said about it, which was "let's not make halloween about dark, demonic things, but rather about community, generosity and fun."
and it can be just that.
that's what we hope to teach our kids about this one day of the year.
and p.s. 5 kids trick or treating this year = boatloads of candy for mom. so i'm totally in.
