The end to a L-O-N-G Day!

Today seemed like the longest day ever and it is finally winding down for us (8 pm!) Sarah's class had a party today so she got to wear her costume to school all day. When we arrived at 1 pm for the party, they were out on the playground so you can only imagine the shape their costumes were all in. Sarah was a pink bunny this year and her ears and tail had both been ripped off. Fortunately we were able to reassemble everything and make it through the evening still looking like a pink bunny. This year Ansley was a pumpkin and she wasn't he least bit shy to run up to a door and reach her hand in the candy bowl. I handed her a twix to keep her busy then noticed she had chewed through the wrapper and eaten half the candy bar. She wasn't wasting any time! Our neighborhood this year is the perfect size so we came home with just the right amount of candy (last year it was insane what we got!!) Sarah came home and decided to count out all her candy. Who says Halloween can't be a teachable moment? :-) We were able to meet several of the neighbors and we loved seeing all the little ones dressed up. We all had a great time and look forward to next year.
