Halloween 2016

This year, we had a goldfish, Lighting McQueen, and a cupcake :)  The kids were bouncing off the walls excited before we even entered the candy sugar rush!

The kids had fun trick or treating the loop around our street.  It was really fun to go with three big kids - our first time trick-or-treating with all three kids and no stroller!  Larkyn even joined in the rotation of ringing the doorbell every third house and quickly picked up on how the whole process worked - say trick-or-treat, get candy, say thank you :).

In full disclosure, we spent the first half of our trick-or-treating utilizing the many teachable moments at each house we visited to refine our young, competitive son in the area of "the first shall be last".  With the repetitive practice that running house to house allowed, he did indeed master the art of allowing others to go first rather than pushing to be first.  I was very proud of his changed actions and attitude by the end of the evening, volunteering to be the last one to get candy rather than elbowing others out of the way.  Paul's tactic of taking a piece of candy from his bucket for each time he pushed may have had something to do with it!;)

Mmmm!  Yum!
