WW: Trick-Or-Treat

Like I mentioned below, Halloween festivities have been rescheduled for Saturday as our area cleans up from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. I'm happy to report that we were able to return to our home today to find it exactly as we left it. We feel very fortunate that we didn't have any major damage, but many people in our town weren't as lucky.  And those at the Jersey shore?  The devastation there is heartbreaking.

Anyway, I wasn't really able to snap many pictures of the kiddos in their costumes yet, so these will have to do for now ;)

My little blue-eyed, blonde-haired Mario.  So convincing, right?
He's so happy.  Carter Man loves Halloween!

Brynn, however?  Not so much.
That was her the moment we put on her witch costume for my niece's first birthday party. She loves Halloween about as much as I do. Ahem.

Oh, no worries, she cheered up again.  When we took her costume off and she got a cupcake.

And then there's Reid.  The cutest little giraffe my eyes did ever see.
 
Be still my heart.

I hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween!

Praise God you and your family made it through the storm safely! These are sweet photos--and I loved the ones of Brynn. :) I have a Super Mario this year, too, only he's ten and bought the costume himself at a yard sale. He's the shopper I never was! ;)

So, I have a question. I am not attempting to start an argument or be rude in anyway but I was highly offended last year when you posted about your annual family vacation to the Outer-banks of NC was interrupted by a hurricane. You wrote about and came across very annoyed that there were still boards up on your rental vacation homes windows only a few short days after that storm devastated the area.

So my question, now, is do you feel differently? Do you feel more sympathetic toward those North Carolinians that were devastated by that Hurricane similarly to how you feel about your home state being ripped apart? Do you regret acting so selfishly regarding your vacation homes windows while innocent people were still trying to pick up the pieces and put their lives back together?

Really puts things in perspective when you get the opportunity to walk in someone elses shoes. I am thankful that you, as well as many others were able to get through the storm safely. We must remember to pray for all of those affected by Hurricane Sandy as well as those affected by past hurricanes who are still trying to get back on their feet.

@ Anonymous- No, I do not feel differently. I was sympathetic then and I'm just as sympathetic now. But thanks.

Tish said...

I am not saying you weren't sympathetic. But I do think that people feel differently, I doubt that you or anyone else would appreciate vacationers on the Jersey Shore angry the vacation homes aren't perfect.
