Halloween at the Crouch House

Yes, I realize that it’s been a week and a half since Halloween.  

Sorry it took me so long to get around to sharing the picture below.  My son was dressed as Mario, and my oldest daughter is a mermaid.  Our three-year old is Sleeping Beauty, and our 6-month old (seven months old today!) is dressed as some sort of flower fairy. I am dressed as a real estate broker.  Clever, huh?

Couple of highlights:

  • We went to see my wife’s grandmother in the assisted living place, and the people there thought that my son was dressed as a train conductor: “Hey, train man!”  Needless to say, he didn’t know they were talking to him.
  • The older kids’ stamina seems to get a bit longer each year, although now we have to balance that will two smaller kids, which means our new double stroller is a must.
  • My three-year old daughter got a huge haul of candy, largely by lingering near the door while multiple rounds of kids approached and left.  We didn’t figure this out until later, but I think she got several “doses” at some doors.  🙂
  • Every Halloween since 2003, I am reminded of when my oldest daughter first went trick or treating – she caught on very quickly, and her catch phrase was simple and to the point: “Gimme…..candy.”

I think next year, I may dress up again, since I will be 40 then and I will have even less shame than now.
