Our Halloween was eventful in all the right spooky ways. Rainbow Dash and Honest Abe Lincoln got to wear their Halloween costumes to a trunk and treat, a class party, and a Boy Scout event.
After a week full of Halloween activities, these kiddos were happy to relax for most of the day at home. I love easy days like that. Not a lot of rush, but enough to keep us busy around the house, making us crave a quick and easy meal.
