Mary Poppins & The Firefighter

We survived Halloween. I should say...I survived Halloween and the kids loved it. Friday was busy with school parties and parades. Saturday we had a few people over and took the kids trick or treating. The weather held out only for a short period but with our two small children it was more than fine.

When I condensed all of their candy (from parties, trick or treating, etc) we had a gallon freezer bag so full it wouldn't close. The thing that struck me the most this year was how much each of my kids loved their costumes. This was Palmer's first year of really understanding that he was a "fireman" and he loved every minute of it. He was more concerned about holding on to his fire extinguisher water gun than his bucket of candy. Emily loved being Mary Poppins. Always one for compliments she got more than her fair shared and asked by strangers for pictures and where we got her accessories. Special kudos to her grandmother (MIL) for helping find the most important carpet bag and hat. They really made the costume.
