Happy Halloween!

What a FUN Halloween! We decided to go low-key and trick or treat in our own neighborhood with our family(my mom included). I must say this year was the most fun yet, but I'm not sure who had more fun. The kids getting their candy or us laughing at their speed to the doors and shrills over their loot. It was also nice saying hello to neighbors we don't see very often. And of course this brings back memories of how it was before all the carnivals and hayrides, etc.

I'm not a creative/crafty mom at ALL, so I had to document my easy cookie craft for Jake's party at school. Apparently this was on Pinterest, but I just saw these in the hall at school on Friday and copied the idea. I thought they turned out cute.

And who wouldn't like to ride in style while trick or treating!
Oh how I wish this had been videoed coming from this house! They were screaming about the goody bag they'd received! LG especially was going hysterical! It was quite hilarious.

Glad we stopped for a quick picture. Definitely going to make a tradition of doing it "the old fashioned way" from here on out. So much fun!!
Happy Halloween Y'all!
