halloween stories.

One about Savannah...
Savannah was invited to a few Halloween parties {and even though it was a lot of work}, I tried to look at it as the opportunity to get the most out of that expensive costume.

One night I decided to try to sway her in to staying home with Paul and I, and we would do something fabulously fun! It wasn't my finer moments, I realize she needs to grow up and go have fun with friends. Sob. So, after lots of discussion she decided to still go to the party, and may have told me only popular kids were invited to this party {it begins already}. She was even okay with Paul and I taking the little ones to do something super fun without her.

After I dropped her off, and saw how ridiculously cool the party was, I was glad she decided to go. It will just be the first of many times she will choose friends over her lame parents.

One about Devin...
I had bought some crafting stuff the other day, and Devin is always my sidekick. He loves expressing himself, and making presents for people. While he was making one of his creations, he kept telling me it was for Grandpa, and then Grandma, and then Uncle Jackie. He wrapped it up, and put it in a special spot. Well, last night on our way out to trick or treat Devin decided to bring the present along in his bag. When I asked him who he was going to give it to, he told me "some guy". 

I was secretly hoping he would forget he had it in his bag, and that the candy would cover it up quickly. No such luck. We went to quite a few houses, and finally on the way down the drive way he pulled the present out and ran back to give it to my friend Staci. It was really sweet, and I was thrilled we actually knew the "some guy" so it wasn't totally embarrassing to explain. He does have such a tender little personality. 

One about Sabrina...
Sabrina loved Halloween! I never knew a baby could be so in to it, but she was. Anything we passed that was spooky, she was growling. When we put her in the stroller to go trick or treating, she knew she was missing out on candy. But the thing she liked the most? Passing out the candy. It was so fun to watch her look out our side window to see if she had trick or treaters. She was excited to open the door, and even got the toys in their bags. It made the perfect end to our Halloween.
