Elijah and Ethan as little mice!
For Halloween this year, we dressed the kids up and went "trick-or-treating in Grandma and Grandpa's neighborhood. We know more people over there and Grandma wanted to show off her grand kids to some of her friends. The kids had a great time going from house to house. Once Elijah found out that people would put candy in his bag, he marched right up, held his bag open wide, and said "Trick-or-treat" in a clear voice. Ethan had fun too, but he struggled a bit with his costume. He didn't like how it felt on his legs and hitched it up with one hand while he walked. Cassie loved being a "Maiden Fair" and really loved the massive amounts of makeup Grandma put on her to "complete" the look. After going around the block, we piled the kids in the van to head to Fall Fest at the church. It was in full swing when we got there and Cass decided pretty quickly that she was tired, so we hopped on the hayride and then headed back home. All in all it was a good evening and the kids had a great time.
