And this is why I love holidays:

Pure untainted joy. That is what was exuding from my three year old on Halloween. Everything was full of excitement and anticipation; whether it was carving pumpkins for the first time in his recent memory, trick-or-treating and coming home with 56 pieces of candy (to which he replied, "Wow! I have a hundred!"), or creating a silly Halloween coloring page book, Will had the greatest time. And since he had such a good time, so did we. I'm so happy we get to have these experiences for many years to come. I can't imagine that it will ever get old for Dallas and I as parents.

Annie's costume accentuates her cheeks perfectly.

Let's not forget this:

It's been 5 years since the last time I used any of my stage make-up skills, but I think I've still got it!
This bum is way cuter than her ducky costume! :)

This year Tyler was super excited too! Will is the cutest Spider Man ever. I love the classic bum picture!

You definitely still have the touch with the stage make-up, you look great. Where's Dallas' costume picture!?!

Amylee, your makeup job is great. It looks like you were in an awful battle. I agree with you. Kids and Halloween just go together perfectly. I just love how surprised they are when they are really little and don't quite get the trick-or-treating thing. They yell trick-or-treat and they get candy. What could possibly be better than that?
