We survived Halloween. Now the sugar rush has begun, for all of us. We have a great neighborhood to trick-or-treat in where the houses all like to hand out candy. The kids can get a good stash in about an hour. After trick-or-treating we stopped by some friends for hot chocolate. Lauren wanted to go with her friends this year and had a great time and got more candy than she'll ever know what to do with. Let's hope we can keep the braces from popping off. I was hoping she'd sell some of it to the local dentist who pays $1/pound but no such luck. The first picture is from our ward trunk-0r-treating. It's the only time I get remotely dressed up.
p.s. At the party a little girl (about 6ish) was staring really close at my fake eyelashes. I asked her if she was looking at my pretend eyelashes. She said, "yeah, and all those wrinkles around your eyes!" "Those," I said, "are unfortunatley VERY real." Gotta love kids and their honesty! (her mother was mortified :)
