It has been an week long celebration.
The kids had their Halloween parties at school on Thursday and got to wear their costumes. Ella Kate decided at the last minute that she wanted to be a princess instead of a cat (original plan). I don't feel so bad after reading several other blogs where other moms made last minute switches too! I was afraid that I would insist she be a cat and she would get to school and all the other little girls would be princesses. She would be heart-broken! So, I let her be a princess at school if she promised to be a cat for Trick-or-Treating. She obliged thank goodness!!

Halloween night we made our rounds at all the grandmas, papas, aunts and uncles. We especially like visiting Granny and Papa Neal who remember the adults too....she always has dessert for us! It's nice to stop and visit while we enjoy our Halloween candy!

After family visits, Michael headed to the last regular season football game at Woodruff and the kids and I were off to Trunk or Treat at church. Lots of cute costumes there and waaaay too much candy!!

The kids in line with their pumpkin flashlights -thanks Mimi! - they were perfect for showing each "trunk" where their bag was! :)
I think it's safe to say that we have WAY too much candy at our house now! If we ration a piece per day, it will surely last us until next Halloween!
