a week late

alright, so i know that halloween was over a week ago, but i am now just getting my life into some sort of semblence of what it was before our trip. so, between loads of laundry and unpacking and cleaning up messes and.....and....and...(does it ever end??) i am going to attempt to get to today!

since i've grown up, or i guess i should say, since i've gotten bigger because i'm not so sure that i have grown up yet, halloween has sort of lost it's excitement. it just seems like such a strange holiday! i mean, c'mon, we dress up and walk around with a bag/bucket/pillowcase and go house to house asking for candy. doesn't that seem a bit odd to you?? anyway, i am kind of the bah humbug of halloween and my girls are lucky they have mitch for a dad because he gets into the halloween thing.

anyway, halloween was a quick ordeal for us, thankfully so! i made creamy pumpkin soup for dinner, of which i was the only one who enjoyed it(my family is a little, shall we say, resistant to any foods that are not regularly on the menu, what am i saying? some of them, one inparticular, are resistant to ANYTHING that is on the dinner menu!). which also meant that i enjoyed it all week long, since i was the only one that would touch the stuff. it was really good!

anyway, after my family wouldn't eat dinner, the girls got dreesed up in their costumes. nani and lala were witches and kawena was a puppy dog (thanks to lala's puppy party all i had to do was go out and buy some slepper pj's that looked "doggish", and we had a little puppy).

our ward had a trunk or treat, so we went to that and were home in time to get the girls to bed at a decent hour! i know, you're probably thinking that sounds very boring and uneventful, but the girls loved it and they didn't ask for more! while we can get away with it we will go for simple, because i know there will come a time when we can't do "simple" any more!

Your family looks adorable and judging from all those gorgeous smiles, I don't think you spread your Halloween humbugness!

I am so with you! I don't like Halloween either. I am very happy to have my kids done trick or treating and in bed by 8pm.

The girls look so cute! We were parked next to Mitch so I saw him dishing out candy but didn't see your girls.

I just can't believe how big your girls are. Noelani is such a little lady. Your pictures are always great and so fun to look at.

Good to have you back and posting! I've been lurking around to see the costumes! I'm right there with you on the no one will eat dinner thing. We're trying something new this week to encourage eating. I'll let you know how it goes!

How can you not like Halloween? When I heard Bridget mention the same thing earlier I thought the same thing. Hm...for me it's almost right up there with Christmas. Maybe i'm the wierd one. Well, anyway, your girls looked like they had a blast that evening and the picture of Nani and Lala by the pumpkins is great.
