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!
