It seriously feels as though this year has flown by! Just over ten months ago, Hubster kissed me goodbye on our front porch and headed off to Afghanistan. I’m excited to say that next month he’ll be home for good! I’m expecting him to be home for Christmas which is part of of the reason I’m so excited for the holiday this year.
Although he’s missed a year’s worth of holidays, he was particularly sad about missing Halloween. It was Baby A’s first time trick or treating and the first time that V could actually walk up to houses and say trick or treat on her own.
Last night we went trick or treating with a bunch of the other families from our Company. We all met before hand for some pizza and cupcakes. All of the kids were about the same age, so it worked out perfectly. We went trick or treating on post, which was a tiny bit crazy in my opinion. There were seriously hundreds of kids. It was a little wild. Especially with the older kids trampling over our little guys.
Towards the end, it got a bit chilly so I had the girls in jackets with their jeans underneath their dresses. Since she was just chilling in the stroller, Baby A had a blanket too. It made me wonder though, how do kids trick or treat up north??
All in all, we had a fun night! V got a whole bunch of stuff, most of which has been consumed today. There wasn’t really anything worthy of being stolen though. I’d say the candy tax was pretty low this year. I guess since the economy sucks, people weren’t willing to spend the big bucks on the good stuff.
