Halloween Recap and the Mean Mama Award Goes to Me

This year Halloween fell on a Friday. I was so thankful for that because (a) I didn't have to try to teach middle schoolers the day after Halloween and (b) I didn't have to worry about Connor's behavior at school the day after Halloween. I never really liked Halloween as an adult, until I had kids. And now I love it.

 My mom has this big inflatable cat that lights up and moves its head back and forth. It freaks the kids out, which makes me laugh every time. Mean Mama Award goes to me, of course.
 When we moved up North near my parents so that I could get my master's degree 10 years ago, I never dreamed that my brother would move up here years later...or that my sister and I would stay living up here. I don't think it's very common that a set of parents do a cross-state move and have all of their adult children follow them and all live in the same city. Miraculous, really. Halloween night, my mom makes a family dinner and then my siblings, hubby, and I take the little ones trick-or-treating in my parents' neighborhood.
 10 bonus points if you can spot Batman in this photo! My sister, hubby, kids, and me:
 Isabella fits in perfectly with my mom's Pumpkin decorations!
 Showing off our Superhero Capes. I was Super Mom (you know, pretty much just my normal costume!).
 I forgot my nice camera at home, so I didn't get any trick-or-treating photos. But I do love this snapshot from my iPhone, taken before we left the house!
