Freaky Friday

I found about Freaky Friday in Farragut earlier this week and thought I'd check it out. Auntie Karen and Uncle Tom wanted to go and have a chance to do some trick-or-treating with the kiddos.  Uncle Stevie had planned to meet us there, but we didn't stay long and he was held up at work, so he didn't make it. : (

Anyway, I think the kids had a pretty good time despite the fact that it was incredibly crowded and you really couldn't do much walking since it was wall-to-wall people.  I believe there were about 40 area businesses distributing treats along the pathway, but we made it to about 10 before heading back.  It was a good chance to try out wearing their costumes, being exposed to others who were dressed-up and also learning to actually "trick-or-treat".  Clark was over it fairly quickly, especially when he realized that he was only going to be allowed to eat one Dum-dum lollipop.  Emma was not particularly thrilled about wearing a costume and was ready to shed the monkey-get-up.  Kendall was happy-go-lucky and enjoyed being out. 

Uncle Stevie was kind enough to meet us at the house so that I could get the kids settled down.  That small amount of sugar, coupled with the excitement of a new adventure meant that I had three rowdy kids.  But they were still willing to spend some cuddle-time reading stories before going to sleep and that is always a favorite part of my day.  Emma is so interested in "reading" books.
