Halloween is always a blast... even as an adult! Each year we go over to my sister's to hit up her neighbors for some goodies. (They have a much bigger neighborhood!) My favorite part about the night was the way my daughter Libby "tricked" others into giving her more candy.

Sweets are very limited in our household and we decided that when we got back home and poured out all the goods, the kids could each pick out their top ten favorites and we'd send the rest overseas to the soldiers. Libby used this to her advantage to increase her odds on getting the goods. She would tell a bunch of givers how we were sending a bunch over to the soldiers and they'd tell her to grab a big handful then. Why didn't I think of that when I was a kid?!

Our children do have generous hearts and she really was doing it for them. If only we all thought like children at times! Anyway, here's a slideshow of the gang out in the hood. Enjoy!

You are so great for limiting the sweets and then sending them on! Looks like you guys had a great time!
