Halloween 2017

Wednesday, November 01, 2017
We have Trick or Treated in our small hometown since Dylan was toddler. We only missed out on a few years due to moving away and him getting too old while Kindred was too young. Besides the close proximity to my family, this tradition is my favorite thing about living here. 

On to the pics!

Kindred wanted to be Ariel, Tinkerbell, and finally settled on a Witch once she found out her two cousins were going as witches. We dressed the girls in a theme (Wizard of Oz) last year, but this year we didn't consult each other. Ash decided on a witch for Naiya. Nova wanted to be Winifred Sanders but settled on a light-up witch costume. When Kindred jumped on board..err, on broom, I put her costume together from a couple different stores. Michael's for her hat, Once Upon a Child for the jacket & ruffled shirt, my striped socks, and the tutu from her Lightning Bolt costume a couple of years ago. It turned out so cute...except the hat was slightly too big and kept coming off. So, we just kind of ditched it toward the end. Didn't seem as necessary once she started calling herself 'Skeleton Girl' anyway. The interesting thing was that none of us knew what kind of witch the other was planning...but all three girls had purple as the accent color in their costumes. Ha! Sister magic...

Eye on the prize, Kindred...Nova better watch her candy closely.

Let it be known in the future that In The Time Of Now, I was a very happy mama...

I can remember taking Kat when she was younger than Nova. Where does the time go?

Speaking of time...Dylan came along, as a typical teen with an iPhone. But, in my mind's eye, I can still see him as a Ninja Turtle, a Spiderman, a Batman...walking these same sidewalks.

This was Kindred's last house. The next one, she told her daddy "I have enough candies. Let Nova have it." You know, the Top 1% in our country could learn so much about humanity from the giving heart of a child...

So, that was our Halloween and a good time was had by all... I can't believe how lucky we are that this is how it all turned out. How blessed.
