Each year I feel like the worst mama in the world, but Halloween isn't my favorite holiday. It's a lotta work for candy you could just go out and buy. 4th of July and Thanksgiving are my favorites. Each year I have to prep myself to get in the Halloween spirit and at a minimum fool the kiddos in to believing that I like this holiday. This year I was off to a good start and had the decorations done the first week of October. Whew! Costuming 6 kiddos is daunting. I hurts, but now I begrudgingly just let the kids pick a store bought costume, and the used kid's clothing stores always have great deals. Wonderfully this year many of my kids were excited and happy with their sibling's hand-my-downs from years past.

This was T&J's first experiece with Halloween. Last year they had only been home a little over a month, were only 14 months old, and were too scared. And I kinda believe that kiddos should be walking to get candy. This year, I must admit, I had so so much fun taking them up and down our street. They were a hoot to watch. I checked the thermometer when we went out, and at 66 degrees the costumes for T&J were a little too warm.
