Halloween 2011

It was most definitely a day to be remembered...or yet, a few weeks to be remembered. Halloween just seems to be that way for us at this time in our lives. I have yet to write about our fun adventure to the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party the weekend before Nate's big surgery, where all of the kids dressed in their costumes and smiled their biggest smiles throughout the night at Disney.
And we can't forget the trunk-or-treat fun the kids had when all of these pics were taken. It is an annual tradition at one of the churches close to our house, where a whole lot of the kiddos' friends all come out dressed to the hilt for this fun night.
 This year is the first in about 3 years that at least one of my little hooligans didn't have a fever (knock on wood or whatever may work in this situation) this time of year. Therefore, we met some good friends in one of the coolest neighborhoods around for some stellar trick-or-treating! The kids had a blast! And I totally didn't bring my camera for that night of adventure.
This was the absolute first year that all three of the little munchkins totally "got" the adventure and fun of trick-or-treating. As a parent, it was so exciting to see them run from house to house without having to prompt them on what to say and when to say it. They are getting so big. All of a sudden.
Natester hung with the big kids for a few houses before he was pretty gassed. He then had the luxury privilege of riding in his cool stroller for the rest of the hour and a half the other kids proceeded to run across the neighborhood while we trailed behind. They were even so confident as they visited the cool haunted house in the neighborhood and popped their little eyes out of their heads as someone ran toward them with a loud chain saw. It was quite hysterical, if I do say so myself.
It was a fun night...well, a fun few weeks, since they have worn their costumes quite a few times already. These are just some of the days that create lasting memories.

Cute photos! Sounds like you guys had some great celebrations. I was so glad KayTar was healthy this year, she overdid it last year and got very sick because of it. She was a little nervous the same would happen this year, but we were a little more choosy about what we did and she handled it well!
