Halloween was so much fun this year!! I know it is only going to keep getting better, but it's definitely not easy either. The task of getting costumes, making sure the kids like the costumes, and then the fight of getting them to wear the entire costume can really be exhausting. In the end, it's always worth it, but the battle is real.
We started the morning off decorating my trunk for the trunk-or-treat function at the kids school. This was the first year they have done it and it was really fun. I may have almost cried when I realized that I didn't dress Brody in his costume when EVERY.OTHER.KID.DID. It was a total Mom fail; but in my defense, Madelyn's classroom was not dressing up because they are the youngest and so in my head I thought the whole school wasn't dressing up. I'm such an idiot. The entire rest of the school DID dress up. But thank goodness, he literally didn't say a word and didn't even notice! He acted cool as can be and didn't even come up to me asking where his Buzz Lightyear costume was !! I still felt horrible though.
That evening, we headed over to my brother and SIL's house to do some trick-or-treating. The kids looked adorable in their costumes and they were happy to go collect candy! We put the boys in the wagon and Madelyn in the stroller and off we went.
