Halloween 2013

October 31st dawned much the same as any other day in my house.
 
Lil C and Doodle off to high school. After a mad rush to get dressed, eat, make a lunch and grab backpacks, we were out the door to the bus stop.
 
Cold.What else is new for a WA Halloween? If its not raining its freezing temps.
 
I found myself thinking all day about Halloween's past.
 
Picking out the perfect costume.
Visiting the pumpkin patch.
Carving the pumpkins.
Halloween day FINALLY arrives and the kids excited to get up and wear their costumes to school.
Rushing home to get some dinner in before heading out to trick or treating.
Frantically trying to get the neighborhood group photo before they all explode with excitement.
Walking after the kids as they collect mountains of candy
Then thawing frozen hands with hot chocolate and cider at Miss Em's house
 
I miss those days.
 
This year the kids were just too old to dress up for school and trick or treat.
 
I want these years back......
