Halloween brings treats to our home. The kind of treats that only the above children can bring to our hearts. Sophie the angel, Christian the soccer monster and Emma Deluxe Descendants Evie.
And this Halloween, as an added treat, and certainly not a trick, we were blessed with Scarlet the unicorn. Certainly more adorable then any unicorn can be.
Now as the trick or treat day tick-tock-ed on – like 10 minutes into it – our trick or treat-ers began to quickly strip off some of their costumes.
We couldn’t believe it, all that time getting into the costumes and it quickly became apparent that the trick was on us.
But Halloween doesn’t die quickly in our family. It’s the adults who really know how to do Halloween frightly.
Even our little angel lost her wings and the devil didn’t make her do it.
Halloween is a spooky treat in our neighborhood. We hope that next year we don’t lose some of the older kids to the “I’m to big to dress up” statement. Well, if they are anything like us grown ups, they may start off with no costume, but they will slowly end up wearing one.

I love when the miles that separate us doesn’t get in the way when it comes to family and good friends.
As my husband and I are from New York. My In-laws from California. And our good friends from New Jersey. It was not difficult to pick one meeting ground so we can come together at the chosen place, Brendan’s Bar and Grill – I found it interesting that the name of our meeting place was one letter different from my married name – and it was chosen by a New Jersey residents. LOL!
Yup, three family’s from three different states managed to getting together to celebrate. What are we celebrating? Just the fact that we are family and friends.
Of course, the night did not end after Brendan’s. We then headed out into the sultry city night and took our celebration to another city site.
NYC never sleeps! And as the night was just beginning for some in NYC, ours was about coming to the end. Thank you, NYC! You are always a wonderful host.
