A Quiet Halloween Night

No one tells you when it’s going to be the last time… the last Halloween with all four kids dressed up and you manage to capture the full family picture on the doorstep. Last night, some of the 4-pack had football practice & a volleyball playoff game to watch, two had parties to attend, one stayed home to trick-or-treat our neighborhood with friends, and one had a gang over to play madden.

Last night, it is was Tim and me at home passing out candy and eating chili with friends, and it felt to the four of us like a glimpse into quiet days to come. No more lining up our big group of cute kids in costumes captured for posterity.

From here on out it just might be me over here dressing up my poodle. She makes me laugh.

How’d Halloween go in your hood?
