Halloween 2013. Popcorn, Dorothy, Little Red Riding Hood.
I say it every year, but I really do love this holiday. Last year the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy canceled trick-or-treating on Halloween, so we are all especially excited to go out tonight, especially since the weather is supposed to be quite mild (in the 60s). I think I enjoy trick-or-treating just as much as the kids. To me it's not so much about going from house to house collecting candy as it is about having an opportunity to say hello to all your neighbors. I'm sure my children feel differently!
I was feeling nostalgic recently and put together this series of photos showing my girls over the last five Halloweens - 2009 to 2013 (you can click on it to see it larger). It really is unbelievable to see them grow up right before my eyes. I still think Claire's Olivia costume from 2010 is my absolute favorite.
