Another Award And A Great Night

Update: Windy from A Peek At Us also awarded me this.
I lost all my awards when I changed my blog to the new fall design so I am so happy to start over again. I will post this one on my sidebar. This award was given to my by Baseballs and Tutus and I can't thank her enough. I will post this in my sidebar and I am passing this along to Huse Blog Is It Anyway? She is hilarious and I have just started reading her blog but already love it. She also has a Etsy shop which you really need to check out. So thanks again for the award.

To change the subject, we had so much fun last night. Jack put on his costume 2 hours before we were supposed to leave and this is the way I found him. He fell asleep before we even started. After getting everyone ready, we went to my mom and dad's house to take a few pictures. Maci Clare and Jack weren't being very cooperative so this was the best shot I got of all 4 of all 4 of them together.
Jim even let me paint his bald head for the occasion. It was a hit. Several people took pictures of it.

We headed to the church first and I snapped this picture of my mom's friend, Audrey. She was just too hilarious. The kids got lots of candy there and we know everyone so that makes it better.
Then we headed to a neighboring church where they were having another trick or treat party with games and supper. We ate soup there and it was excellent. And they did it all for free. So we all got to eat supper for free. Usually on Halloween we are rushing home at 9pm to try to eat a pizza from Little Caesar's so it was really nice to be able to eat a good meal. Thanks to everyone at Midway for providing that to our community. What a great ministry.
Then we headed downtown. The EMS always gives away bags of candy to the kids and funnel cakes for the adults. So we ate our funnel cake and walked down the street a little ways. Most everyone had stopped giving out candy so Zane, Jack, and Jim went in to a haunted yard. (There is a couple that always sets up a haunted yard in their front yard and people wait in line to go in.) Then we headed for home.
I watched the kids dump all their candy in the floor and observed 3 different approaches to the candy.
Of course, Maci Clare was sound asleep so she never even looked at all her candy.

Gabe sorted his candy in little piles according to what kind it was.
Zane immediately started eating his.
Jack just started digging through and opening all of his. He would taste it and most of the time this is what his face looked like.

So finally, about 10:30 they were all sound asleep and I crashed too. I'm so glad Halloween fell on a Friday this year. It was a late night but well worth it for the fun we had.
