My attempt at dressing up...hey, it was festive!
Jenna, MacKenzie and Sarah after school
Bought this cute chalkboard and had yet to use it. MacBeth looks good don't you think?
Jenna left the carving so she could work on her culinary masterpieces. She picked out a couple of desserts from a magazine I had, and I gathered all the ingredients for her. I wasn't allowed to help, and she did a great job putting everything together herself. We took her Halloween pizza cookie and graveyard pudding trifle over to her friend's house so she could share it with them. Well done Jen!
Our completed creations and their little newcomer. Grapefruit works.
MacKenzie, Madi and Heather ventured out into our neighborhood unsupervised. Fortunately, we know these are good girls, and they were up for the solo adventure. They were out for TWO hours and have candy enough to last all year. Our neighborhood has been a little slow, but it's sentimental, and I'm glad Heather's friends came to join her in the festivities.
Jenna joined her friends to visit another neighborhood. The whole group decdied to do this at school, and it was a huge group in the end. We ran into our soccer team friends (the cowgirls) which was a treat. Back at Sarah's house, MacKenzie, Sophie and Grace ate Jenna's desserts and did one last candy trade. Jenna was sad not to go around our neighborhood, but she gave this new thing a try. All-in-all, I think the kids had a great time together. It's sad to think that we only have a couple more years of trick-or-treating before our girls outgrow it. Heather thinks this was her last year. Where does the time go? It goes too fast!
