I enjoy Halloween. Not for the frightful, spooky things, but for the sweet, innocent things. Pumpkin carving and lighting, sweet little ones in their adorable costumes, luminaries lining the driveway, and sure, who doesn't enjoy candy?
We enjoyed an afternoon and early evening at my sister's yesterday celebrating my dad and niece's birthdays. It was also trick-or-treating night in their town so we took Kale out for a spin with them around the block. It was sweet watching Justin take Kale up to the door, receive the candy, and when he turned to leave, Kale would look back at the people in the doorway like he was trying to figure all of this out.
This afternoon we went to a neighboring town to trick-or-treat the businesses on Main Street. Kale is too young to really understand and thoroughly enjoy this whole business, so we didn't stay long. It was a nice day to be out and have something different to do (can I get an "oh ya" from all the stay-at-home moms out there???)
Instead, we went to a few neighbor's homes and delivered cutout sugar cookies and they could see our little dragon (good guess on "Barney" those of you who tried from the "sneak peek post". I originally thought it was a dinosaur costume but then realized it is a dragon. Dinosaur, dragon, cute either way...)
So tonight I'll enjoy being snuggled in our house, looking out at the luminaries lining the driveway, and letting our little dragon sleep peacefully. Happy Halloween dear friends.
