This year Reanne wanted to be a cowgirl and Sierra wasn't sure what she wanted to be. I, however told them they had to wear their costumes from last year. They still fit perfectly and that was one less thing I had to worry about. They were really good sports about it. Sierra told everyone she was just a princess (instead of princess Tiana) and Reanne and I decided that she looked exactly like Elizabeth Swan from Pirates of the Caribbean. She was really happy with that. I found Grant's pirate costume at Walmart. I thought he was definitely the cutest pirate that I saw this year.
Although it may be a thing of the past, I miss knocking door to door with my kids. I like seeing everyone's carved pumpkins and decorations. I think it is fun to see them racing down the street and working for their loot. Trunk or treating looses a little of the magic I think.
