Favorite Photo Friday - Halloween 2012

Hi! Remember me? Marla, mom of 4 kids, all their names start with J...ring a bell? Yeah, we're still here, though you wouldn't know it based it on how loudly the crickets are chirping on this blog, huh? Well, it's high time I catch up, so I figured I'd start today by getting a few Halloween pics posted.

Halloween is a really big deal in our neighborhood, we all gather outside to see the kiddos in their costumes and hand out our candy. It's definitely one of the most fun nights of the year, and my kids love it.

This year, we had a viking, Cleopatra, Kit the Skeleton Kat and a ninja. Derek and I had to get in on the action, too. My dad and aunt came by to see the kids all dressed up too, so it was definitely a family affair. I sure was missing my mom that day, she always came over to help me hand out candy and loved seeing the kids in their costumes.

the long road
