I am so not a fan of Halloween, but my boys love the event (as most kids do).
My oldest (age 9 3/4) went as Snake Eyes (G.I. Joe) for a minute. He retired the mask after house #2 claiming poor vision. He told people he was a ninja instead.
My youngest (age 7) went as a skeleton. He didn't like his mask either, so I did his make-up.
My sis-in-law hosted a chili dinner before the 5 kiddos went out trick-or-treating. I made Mummy Dogs, inspired by Pinterest. They were really easy to make: cut arms and legs into the hot dog, wrap with strips of crescent roll dough and pop in the oven for about 10 minutes. The kids devoured them.
The boys collected a ton of candy and said it was the greatest night ever. I came home with blisters on my feet (forgot to change shoes after work), and sore legs and butt this morning from walking all the hills in the neighborhood. At least I got some cardio in, I guess.
I am glad this holiday is over ... now on to my favorites!!
