We had a GREAT Halloween! My two girlies dressed up as "sister giraffes". They were pretty darn cute! We went to Loren's mom's house and went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood he grew up in. Loren's philosophy is if he knows the people whose home he knocks on, they will get more candy.

In case you are wondering, yes Loren can be like a third child. Halloween is one of his most favorite holidays! He claims this is one of the reasons why we had children, so he can once again trick-or-treat. I love the fact that he still enjoys simple things so much. It is a lot of fun to watch him play and share his enthusiasm for life with the rest of us!

He almost had to be out of town on a business trip for Halloween and he helped to get the meeting changed because he couldn't imagine being away from us on such a fun holiday! He is so cute. You can't help but smile when you see how excited he gets everytime someone throws "the good candy" into the bucket. This energy also rubbed off on the girls and they were out HAPPILY trick-or-treating for nearly 2 hours! Anyway enjoy the pictures!

Before The Carnival and all that Halloween Fun!

Hey Shamae,
