Dressin' Up

Halloween was a bit different this year.
Brookelynn got ready early.
She went downtown to help pass out candy
to the hoardes of kids who come for the "Safe Walk".
We went one year.
And never went again.
Absolute craziness.
1,500 kids.
Walking up and down three blocks of Main Street.
So that left us with the three boys
to get ready a couple of hours later.
We picked up Brookie
and stopped at Grandpa and Grandma's.
The plan was for Jakie to be Albert Einstein.
But most people just thought he was a mad scientist.
That works.
Then we returned to our neighborhood.
And let this motley crew head out on their own.
With LOTS of instructions, boundaries and a deadline.
Ryan and I headed out with the little two.
Even though Ezzie was convinced
he was old enough to go with the posse.
No, no, no.
I missed my older kids.
Stop growing up, I say.

Cute costumes -- BTW, the other night, I made your chocolate waffle cookies. They were wonderful!!!!! Based on your experience, I DID NOT sift flour, I DID NOT chill dough, and I used the cocoa + margarine instead of chocolate squares. No problem whatsoever :) Thanks for posting the recipe.

I asked some of them at Sunday School why they didn't come to MY house (I wasn't home anyway, but that's beside the point, my older girls were) and they said it was outside of their boundary!! Good kids!
