I love watching my kids' faces light up as they see their friends in their costumes.
I love putting curlers in Doodle's hair.
I love the smell of chili in the crock pot.
I love seeing Beano so excited about his knight costume that he kept track of all the pieces during our home school party, all by himself.
I love seeing them run down the side walk up to the next house, wondering what treat will be in store for them.
I love hearing the detailed report of exactly which type of candy that house gave them,
at every single house!
I love walking through the neighborhood and seeing all the other little monsters and chatting with my sister while the heathens gather the loot.
I love it that my 3 year old wants to be a boy lady bug and will not be talked out of it.
We'll see how that flies when he's 15!
I love watching my baby try to crawl in a pea outfit, too cute!
I love being the mom!
Dubs says in sheer astonishment, "They gave me CANDY!" after the first house.
I wonder what he was expecting.
At another house a little further down the road he says, "I got a big sucker that has GUM inside!"
A little further down the road my nephew who was going up to the doors with them told me that Dubs was saying, "More, please." at every house after they would give him a piece of candy.
Who can resist a cute little boy lady bug who says please?
We finally got him to stop saying that and to say, "Thank you" after they gave him candy.
Then a little further still the report was of Dubs saying "Can I have a Big sucker, please, the kind with gum in it!" At every house!
That sent the candy giver outers digging through their stash to pull out the last blow pop.
Then we had the conversation of
beggar can't be choosers.
As soon as we pulled out of my sister's drive way to head home Beano asks in the most serious tone, "Mom, when do we get to go trick or treating again?"
What a fun night he had! Now I just need to figure out what to so with all that junk food!
