This year we celebrated Halloween three times on three consecutive occasions. The boys were thrilled to be able to wear their unique costumes, that were purchased from Party City and which they were so fond of, for three continous days. I was even delighted to see how ecstatic the twins felt as their pumpkins got filled up with candy and chocolate every time they said, “Happy Halloween! ” I cannot believe how fast time flies. They were just born yesterday, and now they happily participate in special festivities with their siblings.
First we celebrated along with special friends and relatives. Three awesome mamas took care of the decoration, turning the area into a beautiful Halloween setting. They also prepared delicious homemade goodies and snacks, and organized fun Halloween activities. We all had a blast as we played, jumped, and raced – even the little ones of the group.
We, as moms, also got dressed up with some simple but fun costumes to join in the celebration with our kiddos. It simply becomes more meaningful when we are involved and join in the fun.
The next day, my hubby, kids, and I went to another cherished friend’s house where the kids enjoyed trick or treating. Again, they were showered with tasty snacks, extraordinary goodies, and heaps of candy.
Finally, and like every year, the boys went trick or treating in the neighborhood along with their dear friends. The excitement was peculiar as well.
Every time I cannot but notice the joy that glows from their young faces. The whole scenario as I observe them melts my heart. I look at them with pride as I silently pray that we will always be able to provide them with such happiness on any occasion given. I hope that, one day, when they look back, they would be thankful and joyful as they reminisce over those special images from their childhood. As I write these words, my heart swells up, and I feel more than grateful for all the blessings I am entrusted with.
Happy Halloween to all of you my dear readers, followers, and friends. A big thank you goes to all of those who made our Halloween as special as it was. Hope you have enjoyed yours as well!
