NOT "The Best Halloween Ever" Like Last Year, But Good Enough

No, it wasn't the best Halloween ever, like last year, but it was still okay. We've just been too busy, this year, and it seems like the more we try to slow things down, the faster they go! We were late with everything this year, from getting our costumes to carving our pumpkins to getting out the door to trick-or-treat. And sadly, Britt came down with a fever and chills an hour before we left for trick-or-treating. But we persevered, and we still had a great time going to the different houses (one man lost his hand - he said "they cut it off!" and another funny guy offered them carrots OR candy - can you guess what they chose?). The weather was perfect, so that was a major plus, and we got some really delicious candy, so even though it wasn't the "best" Halloween, it was more than adequate.
These are the little puggly-wugglies... My mom's pug, Bucky, is in the pumpkin costume, and our pug, Rosin, is the Bee. They weren't too impressed, but we got a big charge out of dressing them up!
My parents came down for the weekend, just to watch Britt play football. It rained on us, but it was such a light, misty rain, it wasn't cold. We went out for hot fudge sundaes afterwards - Papa's reward to Britt for making tackles!

The Cutest Kids on the Block!
They always come trick-or-treating to my house, first. Brady takes them from the back door to the front, and they ring the doorbell. Our Halloween tradition!
