Halloween part 1
The kids and I went to our annual Halloween party at church this evening. It was a success as usual. When I asked the girls what their favorite part of the evening was, Zoe spoke right up and said, "The singing!" (brave adults dominated the karaoke machine while the kids danced and watched). The girls all agreed getting candy was a highlight and then Eleanor in a very excited voice summed it up, "EVERYTHING was the best!". We ate pizza for dinner, sibling pictures were taken with a polaroid camera and then the kids decorated a page to put their picture on (of course Zoe & Emily argued over whose page the picture was going on since they had each done a page, so I claimed the picture and put an end to the argument, and there was a pinata. Poor Zach missed out on everything as he slept on the couch the entire time. I went around and filled his bucket full of goodies at the end, so he had yummy treats to eat when we got home. By the time 9:30pm rolled around after baths and getting them ready for bed, the kids were pretty much begging to go to bed! And now it is almost Sunday morning and I must get to bed myself. Goodnight.
