I might not like carving pumpkins much, but I DO LIKE seeing lots of "pumpkins" in costumes!
We had a fun night!
Our kids are growing up. . . only 2 of them chose to dress up! The rest are "too big."
Brenna chose to be a beautiful, sparkling witch.
Joshua was a firefighter!
They were seriously cute!
We had supper and then went "trunk-or-treating" with Joshua's "God family."
Don't you just love it when you LOVE your kids' friends?
Joshua is pictured with his buddy, Drew.
While I waited for Joshua Gebeyehu to come home, I dreamed of these boys being friends. . .
and that dream came true.
I am SO thankful!
Brenna and Cam also have a treasured friendship.
We are doubly blessed.
Last year Joshua did not like candy.
Last year all the costumes FREAKED him out.
As you can see, a year has changed all that!
His bucket was quickly filled!
(I think he may have eaten his weight in candy today.)
AND, he was SO excited to put on his costume.
Joshua was SO proud to be a firefighter!
He rarely talks to new people, but he told ANYONE who asked that he was going to be a firefighter for Halloween!
He happily said "trick-or-treat" and "thank you" to plenty of strangers tonight with joy and confidence.
I LOVED IT!
So did he!
He was still smiling at bedtime!
Until we read a book and said prayers that is . . .
at that point he was fast asleep!
Being a firefighter is HARD work!
Joshua was fast asleep before his head even hit the pillow tonight.
Mah tah, mah tah!
