Halloween 2012

Of course, this Halloween recap is late.  Story of my life...
We had a pretty low key Halloween this year.  Last year was a lot of rushing around and packing as much in as possible.  Typically, the weekend before the 31st arrives, my parents' church holds their Fall Festival, full of games and candy.  However, this year the decided to hold their event 2 weeks beforehand which was the weekend that Caleb's Cub Scout camp out occurred.  We couldn't miss that, so I was hoping that I would be able to find another one but this seemed to be the year that just about every church and organization in town took the year off from holding their events.
Halloween was also on a Wednesday this year, which is our typical day to drive to my parents' church so the kids can attend their Children's Choir program.  We typically don't get back home until nearly 8pm from that, so trick or treating was out too.  I gave them the option to skip for the week and go trick or treating like we did last year, but they were both emphatic that they had to go to choir, so we went.
Piper had dance that morning, so both kids donned their costumes before we left and did not remove them until late that night, after returning home from church.  All in all, it was a good Halloween but, honestly, I did miss getting at least a little candy, but it's probably better that we didn't!  There's always next year!
