I like it because my kids like it and I like to see them happy. I like how you can pretend you are someone different for one day and that you have an excuse to eat totally unhealthy for a little while. I like to see people's creativity with costumes they have made and houses they have decorated. I really like to see the smiles that adults have as they give out candy at the door to the kids. I also love any excuse to form family traditions and spend time together. It's rare that we are all together doing something fun these days.
This year Reanne was an Enderman from Minecraft, Sierra was the cutest pirate ever, and Grant was a Clone Trooper.

Everything was a big hit and our tummies were very full. Our Halloween dinners are kind of like Thanksgiving. There are so many fun things to try, you want a little of everything. And it is especially fun to share the night with family. Thanks Mom and Tracy for contributing to the meal and sharing in our tradition.
