On Thursday we made our annual Halloween trip to the Nursing Home. We decided to hand out bananas this year. Moonpie made little tags and tied them to each banana. Buddy added heart stickers.
I grew up visiting nursing homes with my parents. It is such a gift to me to share this experience with my children. I love seeing Moonpie's comfort and delight around the elderly. Buddy is still very shy, but he will stand by my side as I visit. They are charmed by his bashfulness and that sweet little face.

On Friday we attended a party. Moonpie was very distraught by the idea that I wasn't going to be dressed up. So at the (very) last minute I became country mouse from Town Mouse, Country Mouse. The funniest part to me was that I was already wearing this outfit. I just pulled up my hair into ears and drew on my nose and whiskers!
On Saturday the kids went to a halloween festival with their papa and mimi. By Sunday I was declaring war on candy and "any food that comes in a bag!!!".
On halloween night my brother-in-law was married. We had tons of fun and because of all of the merriment leading up to the big day, we didn't even miss trick or treating one little bit!
