Halloween photos

Starring (from left to right):  Our sweet friend KMe as a medieval princess; Padme as a genie; Angel as a china doll; Wendy as a cat; Dora as a ballet princess; and Lil Yoda as a rock star guitarist.  We had a fabulous time trick-or-treating in our neighborhood.  Our 3 adoptees had never done anything like this, and Dora just kept saying, "Mama! This is the best night EVER!"

I only let my kids keep 30 pieces of candy, so we have lots of fun after trick-or-treating, going through what we do & don't like, and trading and, eventually, discarding.  I have found that, if I let them keep all of their candy from every holiday, then we have candy constantly in the house. We look at candy as a "sometimes food," so they are excited about the 30 pieces they get to keep!  Baloo stayed home & handed out candy to our millions of trick-or-treaters, and we got to hand some out, too, when we got back home.  The kids really enjoyed oohing and aahing over all the kids' cute costumes!
