It's that time of year again, when everyone needs to find a good costume!  A few months ago we went to our neighbors' birthday party which involved animal costumes.  Nathaniel saw his friend Annabelle dressed as a bumblebee and instantly decided that he had to be a bumblebee for Halloween.  Lillian has been watching tons of Jake and the Neverland Pirates and she already had the puffy shirt so naturally she was a lady pirate with a gold dress (because obviously pirates love gold).  We also attended an American History themed Halloween party in honor of an exchange student from Chile, so Eric shaved his chin and rigged up some wire spectacles to be Teddy Roosevelt.  Trick-or-treating was a big success, with everyone accumulating plenty of candy, which Lillian decided was best used to replenish our exhausted supplies to hand out to the mob of trick-or-treaters that came by our door.  This required no prompting, and we were really impressed when she dumped her candy stash into the bowl to hand out to others.  We must have done something right at some point...
