Happy Halloween

For Halloween, we started out going to our Church for games, jupiter jump, and of course CANDY! Ben enjoyed it much more than I thought he would and actually played two of the games. We came home, enjoyed our half-priced hamburgers from Sonic and Ben enjoyed his 50 cent corn-dog. I remembered going to Sonic on Halloween when I was little and getting the hot dog and ice cream cone. Isn't that a strange thing to remember? I loved Halloween. John said we had to wait until dark to take him trick-or-treating, so we didn't leave until 7:00. We couldn't decide if we both would go or John would just take him so I could hand our candy to the trick or treaters at our house. I looked up and down our street and saw no kids, so I decided to go with them. I am so glad I did. Ben did so good! I thought he would be too scared to walk up to people's houses he didn't no. I thought wrong. He was somewhat hesitant with the first house, but once he realized each house was going to give him candy, there was no hesitation. He would go right up to the door, John would ring the door bell and if they didn't answer quick enough, Ben would give a few knocks to speed the process up. He had no problem dipping his pudgy little fingers into the candy bowls and putting it in his little pumpkin. And each time he said "Tank YOU!" (Very proud Mommy moment.)
Much to John and I's disappointment we had no trick-or-treaters. In fact we were told at each house we went to that we were the only trick or treaters in the neighborhood. Good thing I bought 5 bags of candy!
All in all we had a really good time. I imagine as our children get older the more fun it will be!
