Happy Halloween: The Costume Reveal

First of all, I DID IT!!  A blog every day for 31 days is huge.  (Look at the history on this blog if you don’t believe me!)

Most of my blogging hasn’t been about Down syndrome.  And that’s how life is.  It’s just life.  We eat, we play, we clean up messes, we go places, we have fun.  Life for us isn’t all about Down syndrome.  Not even close!

I hope that people who have visited our blog have been able to see that we’re an ordinary family.  And that we’re blessed and lucky beyond measure.  We have 5 awesome kids.  We love them all dearly.  We try to make life about our relationships, about love and service.

And when appropriate, we dress up in fun costumes and walk around the neighborhood begging people for candy!  We hope you all had a fun and spooky Halloween!

Emily as a Japanese lady, and Josh as Link (from the Legend of Zelda Nintendo game).



Caleb as a dragon and Rachel as a nice witch.  (The end of Caleb’s dragon tail has worn completely through to the stuffing from being dragged across the ground!)



And Daniel as the Frog Prince (notice he’s working on supported sitting…all by himself on the couch!)


We came home from trick-or-treating and the kids had a few pieces of candy. Then gave what was left to Jared in exchange for a Lego minifigure.

We had 12 trick-or-treaters come to our door…about an average Halloween for us.  And that means we’re left with LOTS of candy.  Good thing we bought the good stuff!

Thanks for coming along on our 31 for 21 challenge!  I hope there was at least one person out there who benefitted by reading.  Feel free to keep reading and following our story!
