Sorry I've been gone so long again. My days like I've said before seem to pass by in a flash lately. I've been reading a book series lately that has really had my attention when not dealing with the kids and the house.

Anyway not much really going on other then the regular daily grind around here.

Of course yesterday was Halloween. We went to trick or trunk at the elementary school near us again. It's the best for trick or treating since the houses are spread out around here and in the woods. The kids had a lot of fun with it though.

McKenzie was a fairy bride as she called it. She wore a bride dress and fairy wings anyway. Of course she was very cute as always. Maddie was a pirate in pink, very cute. The outfit was totally her! They went with a friend here who was also a fairy.

Joshua was a vampire a bit creepy in the night later as we were coming home don't you think?

Madison with her costume. She was loving it and playing it off well. She looks very happy with herself here. Doesn't she?

For anyone who doesn't know what trick or trunk is. Basically instead of going from house to house they go to a parking lot where people park their cars and sometimes decorate them. They hand out candy from their trunks while kids pass by. This year worked out nicely. It was still a little light out when we started because we hadn't set our clocks back yet. For one day at least the heavy winds we've been having all month died down and the temps were comfortable, in the mid 40's. Last year we were wet and in the 30's.

Here is Kenzie in her bride costume. You can't see her wings very well here though. They had balloons because one of the people was passing them out with candy.

Like I said though sorry I've been absent so much. Not really much going on to talk about. Kids are doing great for the most part. I'm having some issues with Joshua and his behavior lately. The kid has decided it's okay to yell at his mother, which is definetly NOT okay with me. We are working on it though.

14 people had something to say:

What a gorgeous expression. [we also had a vaguely creepy Vampire this year, which I consider to be great progress!]

Some of the churches here had trick-or-trunk, also. Seems to be catching on across the country. (We didn't go to one, but they're a good idea.) Enjoyed the photos!

I love the trick-or-tunk thing. I remember your posting about it last year. That's what I love about blogging. You get to see what other people do.

I hope things calm down with Joshua sooner rather than later. I know that can be stressful.

My kids have been trunk or treating and had fun doing it! It was warm here on Halloween. The kids had a good time that night. I will post the pics tomorrow maybe? Connor think it's okay to yell at me too. It's been a long go, and we are still working on it.

It looks like they had a great time. I remember the trick or trunk from last year. It is neat to be reading blogs I read last year and see the traditions repeated. I hope things improve with the boy soon. I know we have our things going on around here too. Parenting is tough.

Yippee! You're back! The kids looks fantastic... but I still can't get my head wrapped around this whole trunk or treak thing.
