Trick or Treating

Okay, of course this first picture is of my wonderful husband goofing off, trying on Taylor's Elmo costume. I am not quite sure it fits him so good.

Here is a shot of the neighborhood kids that we trick or treated with. From left, my two Princess Alex and Taylor as Elmo (in the stroller). Almost 4 month old baby Jaci in the next stroller, Brody as some transformer or something in the wagon and 4 month old baby Ryan in the end stroller. In this picture, you get Noah who is attached to his Mom.
His Dad battled him and made him change costumes, so this was the aftermath of it.

Here is my girls with someone's ass in the way.

Now that Halloween is over, I am exhausted. Wade is usually off 4 days, then works 4 days. Well, he was off Wednesday and helped his uncle shingle his roof before it snowed (thankfully we got more rain than snow). Thursday he was off and home with me, but slept until 10:30. Friday he had to work. Saturday he was off and I was able to grocery shop alone. We also did a GTG w/ our neighbors after Trick or Treating, so I made a 7 layer dip and a pumpkin angel food cake to share with them.
I would like to thank everyone (in my neighborhood or not) that gives toddlers crackers, pretzels, or even suckers. I know big kids want candy but these are great for my almost 2 year old.

This morning, I woke despite the extra hour of sleep, exhausted. Tay woke up once needing her "Blanket, Elmo and other Elmo." Alex woke up once and wanted to sleep with me - which I cannot do. I do not sleep well with anyone touching me. Oh, and then I went to the couch too because my husband was snoring. Just to be woke up at 4 am when we got up to go to work. Yawn! However, I have already folded 4 loads of laundry and have more in the washer and dryer plus one more to go. YUCK! I also had to unload the dishwasher and do dishes from the sink. I HATE an unorganized house. Maybe I'll treat myself to a snickers later for my good work. The girls each got one full size one (for me!!!).
