God, give me patience...

... when wee hands tug at me with small demands.

That's where I've been. In the land of wee demands. Sorry for my absence - from both mine and your blogs.



We had a fantastic Halloween day. It started with a costume parade at the elementary school. Here's my little tank engine:


There was much baking and cooking as well. Taco soup, rice krispy treats WITH chocolate chips and iced confetti brownies.

Finally the time came to dress up and go party. Every now and then my little tiger would crouch down and roar at passersby. The one day of the year I don't have to apologize for that kind of behavior!

We opted to do the ward trunk or treat this year. I didn't spend much time at all on our trunk... I didn't really have the time, but I was sure inspired by some of the others!
We came home and let the kids hit a few of our neighbors' homes for the traditional trick or treat. Then everyone crashed, despite pure sugar pumping through our veins.

Sasha didn't "dress up" so I have to include a Fallish picture of her. :)

I love Halloween pictures! What a darling Tiger ... my 23 month old roars at random people too. Not so fitting with her fairy costume, lol. Your trunk looked more creative than ours :-)

Tracey - it's kind of a tradition in the LDS church. We gather in the parking lot of our church building and open up our trunks for the kids to go "trunk or treating". Just a fun twist on trick or treating and a realyl safe alternative. A lot of people go all out to decorate their cars!

What cute costumes! The kids look great. And Thomas the Train! My son loves him too.

We always opt for trunk or treat. Same amount of candy in 1/4 the time. Priceless.

Cute pics!

At least you did something with your trunk. I sat in the back of mine with DH and that was that.
