Playing Catch-up: Halloween

We returned from Thailand just in time for Halloween.  I arranged our trip that way on purpose because I wanted the kids to experience a real American Halloween.  Our neighborhood goes all-out when it comes to decorating and the kids loved seeing new things show up in yards every day.
  With all the renovations going on at the house, I told the kids that we were going to have to use the costumes we had in the dress-up bin and I was pleasantly surprised when they were fine with it.  Even Sky, who can find a way to get mad about pretty much nothing, was fine with pulling out something she'd worn dozens of times before.  Sky was a purple princess for school and a beauty queen at night, Fire was an alligator, Water was Batman, and Earth wore the skeleton pajamas that Water wore last year.
  We only trick-or-treated up and down our street before the kids were done but they had tons of fun handing out candy to other trick-or-treaters and playing with light sabers and glow sticks in the driveway.  It's so much fun to watch the kids have fun!
