Mercer was able to get three wears out of her Halloween costume this year (lovingly made by my mother).  We kicked off the festivities by celebrating Reed's first birthday with a monster theme bash.  Little Red Riding Hood went sans tights and pantaloons, because, let's face it, it was 90 degrees outside. We also went to my aunt's house to decorate pumpkin cookies, one of my favorite childhood traditions. We then wrapped up the celebrations by hosting a family Halloween dinner and gathering at our home. We weren't sure what to expect because we are never home for Halloween.  We were so pleasantly surprised by the number of fabulous neighbors out and about that we were able to meet and the number of trick or treaters in general.  It was such a great night!
