This year was no exception on the craziness. I had picked up a costume for Grayson, Monsters University's Sully, and he refused to wear it. Maybe because it was heavy, maybe because it was fuzzy, who knows. All I know was that he was not wearing it. I ended up having to scramble to figure out a new one for him last minute. Luckily, I was able to put together a Where's Waldo costume from what I already had in the house.

Sydney is my clothes horse, so she changed costumes multiple times. She wanted to be a ladybug at school for her concert and parade, and Elsa when it came to the actual trick or treating. (Sully costume ended up being worn by her earlier in the week at another party). The concert was adorable. She is usually very quiet, but in her pre-k class singing songs, she seemed to be the loudest 4 year old there! She was so proud of herself. And yes, I teared up a bit. I am a huge softy.

They crashed pretty early that night, despite the sugar rushes. Halloween is tiring but it is one of my favorite things to do with my kids! My stomach hates me for trying to shove so much extra candy in it (I'm on a runner's diet usually), but I am just getting ready for Thanksgiving :)
