Happy Halloween!

I started dinner early today so we could eat and get out out to trick-or-treat before it got really dark out. I put a nice roast in a Bag-n-Season (that's right baby...I'm all about the bag) along with some carrots, potatoes and onions. I started it at 3:15. It should have been done by 4:45. Not. We kept pulling it out to check the potatoes and carrots. 5pm...still crunchy. 5:15...still crunchy. 5:30...still crunchy. 5:45...still crunchy. 6pm...You've got to be shitting me!!! So Dan walked Darcie (who decided that she is much too old to go trick-or-treating this year) over to my parents to hand out our treats and we dressed the baby in her costume and headed out the door.

We drove across town to see Jim and Denise. Denise was home by herself passing out candy. Dailaesse went right up and said trick-or-treat, took her candy and said thank you. After all, even big purple dwagons have manners. We visited for a few minutes outside and then Dailaesse asked to go inside. She followed Denise right in the house and visited away. We went out to see the dog who was hanging out in the garage because he was afraid of the trick-or-treaters. She had a lollipop. Then she announced she wanted to go. So we left.

We headed back towards our house and decided to stop to see my aunt and uncle before heading home. They always have full size candy bars. Their house is the kids favorite place to go on Halloween. Dailaesse hopped out of the car and told us how she was going to say trick-or-treat and thank you to Uncle Gary and Aunt Linda. There was only one problem. My cousin Micahel was home. She's not use to seeing him. She screamed. Loud. Aunt Linda came flying out of the living room to see what was wrong. I told her I wasn't sure but it seemed to have started when Dailaesse looked at Uncle Gary. So Bran took Dailaesse out to the van and Dan and I stayed and visited for a bit.

We arrived home at 8pm and guess what??? The potatoes and carrots were finally done! We ate dinner and got the kids ready for bed. Dailaesse was especially tired even though she took a nap this afternoon. She stripped out of her costume as soon as we got home because she said she was roasting and then proceeded to put her snow suit on. I had to fight with her to get it off to put her to bed. I won. She is currently sleeping in her underwear while the snow suit hangs on the coat rack on the porch.

I'll announce the winner of the current contest tomorrow. Anita got an entry for the 29th and Lisa D. for the 30th. Congrats ladies!!!

I hope you all had a great Halloween!!!

What a darling costume! She looks adorable in it! Good costumes are so hard to find now, especially if you don't want something gross and disgusting. I wish I still had the time to make my own.
