Happy Halloween!

Halloween was another cold and rainy day here. Nick is almost totally recovered from his ear infections and virus, and Katie seems to finally be on the upswing as well.

Katie went as the beautiful Princess Genevieve from Barbie and the 12 Dancing Princesses. This was a picture we took on Friday before trick-or-treating at Daddy's work. I never really got any good pictures of her last night. She did have a good time trick-or-treating with a few of the neighbors, but this year she was a little too sick to really enjoy herself. After going to about 15 houses she was ready to go home. Boy, going house to house here is quite a trek compared to Houston. Climbing up hills and the distance between houses is overwhelming when carrying a 2 year old puppy dog. But every single house was handing out treats. Our neighborhood is quite neighborly.

The kids enjoyed the rest of the night, handing out candy, and of course eating candy. Nicholas figured out the best way to trick-or-treat. While Daddy hands out candy to the other kids, take a few pieces for yourself, and carefully transfer them to your pumpkin. By the end of the evening, he had claimed a good 15 extra pieces for himself.

Way too cute! It seems they had fun despite illness. Candy fixes everything.
