What a lovely little Halloween we had. The day started off rainy and cold, but come trick-or-treating time, it was gorgeous and sunny.
This was the fifth (yes, fifth!) time the kids had worn their costumes in just over a week, but I hadn’t managed to get any good pictures of the two of them together yet. And we all know if there aren’t pictures, it didn’t happen 😉
With a little help from Gigi & Papa, we were able to get both Pocahontas and her cowboy sidekick looking at the camera and smiling (ish) at the same time. I just love this picture!
But let’s be honest…most of the pictures looked like these.
Until Nash just gave up completely.

We started making the rounds with our neighbor friends at 5:00 on the dot. Yep, we were those people…but what are you gonna do when the Royals play at 7?!?
This was the first year that Arden really got it–and that was magical. She ran excitedly from house to house and may have gone a little overboard on the doorbell ringing…but I doubt anyone minded when they opened the door to these cuties 🙂
As if the full-sized candy bars weren’t memorable enough, these neighbors were rocking their costumes. So so good!
Even Nash got in on the candy bar action!
After we dominated our corner of the neighborhood, we decided to head over and see some friends on the other side…because we just didn’t have enough candy yet 😉
Our plan was to lay the kids down at Sarah’s house that night so we could stay late and watch the game with friends…and Arden was just as excited as we were! I overheard her telling a random lady, “Brantley’s going to sleep in his mommy and daddy’s room tonight and I’m going to sleep in his room.” A simple ‘trick or treat’ probably would’ve worked, Arden! 😉
This picture says it all. “One more house, pleaaaase!” The chocolate smeared face is a nice touch too!
We ended the night with some delicious spiked cider and a Royal’s victory. A perfect little Halloween night!
And now…let the candy detox begin. Can someone please come take it all away? 😉
