(a bit late)
The Army is weird. Ok, I love the Army, grateful for it, glad to support it in any way I can. But it's weird. The Dentac had a required Halloween Party. We had to attend and we had to be there for the whole thing. And it was long. I got sunburned. I still have some of that burn.
|There was a pretty cool playground where we had the party.|
|The amount of cotton candy that was consumed should be illegal.|
|I'm a nervous person. I hate when my babies climb these and get too high.|
|Lincoln and Emma each won an award for their costumes. Lincoln got this cool basket full of fun stuff and Emma, poor Emma, got a certificate.|
|It's Indiana Jones again!|
|Lincoln with his award-winning costume and pumpkin bucket|
|Megan in her poodle skirt.|
|Emma as Rapunzel.|
|Yes, I made the hair. Yes, I hated making it. No, I'll never do it again.|
The kids got way too much candy this year since we had a trunk-or-treat at church, the Army Halloween party, and actual Halloween. We've already begun the purge, taking certain candies and tossing them (like suckers and Laffy Taffy, we hate those here because they end up on our carpet). Seriously people, where's the chocolate? Chocolate might melt and get messy, but at least it cleans up easily. Laffy Taffy stays in the carpet.
Anyway, I think next year we might skip the whole candy thing. Now if we can just get the neighborhood to go along with us. . . .
