impromptu memories

Last night was supposed to be trick-or-treat in our community.  However, the wind & rain was so bad that the mayor opted to postpone it until Saturday, which really doesn't look much better weather-wise.  I took the girls (K'Tyo wasn't able to go) to the university for an indoor event.  While it was fun for some, the girls were a little freaked out by the creepy costumes that some of the kids wore overwhelmed.  And then I had a moment of genius....
I had already purchased candy to hand out for trick-or-treat.  I ran it over to my grandparents' house, they put it in a bowl, & we had our very own beggars' night in my grandparents' living room.  It was safe, it was dry, & there were no scary creatures to be found.  The girls loved taking turns getting handfuls of candy from Great Grandpa, & Grandma & Grandpa enjoyed seeing the princesses!
Then we headed over to Grandma Jan's house where the kids each got a special pumpkin cookie & candy that she had all ready for them.
Who knew that a very rainy, very windy night would prove to be one of the best Halloweens ever!?
And here are a few other fun moments from the week:
I love how Kaya & K'Tyo enjoy reading together!
The little girls & I got to do something fun...Our high school boys' cross country team made it to the state meet, which is a big deal!  Their bus was being escorted out of town this morning by the police & a fire truck, so we made up some signs to cheer them on along their route.
I don't know about you, but I can't believe it's November!  While I'm not one to wish time away, I must admit I am truly looking forward to spending time with family over the holidays!!
