Eyeballing the candy

What a fabulous night was had by all last night! I had all three of my children and all two of my grandchildren here for dinner. Then they went out trick or treating. The little ones got lots of candy and the big ones went with them. Unlike last Halloween, there were no fights, no pouting, and no scenes.

I thought it was marvelous that my twin daughters were dressed as they were. The one who is a college graduate and stable as can be dressed as Snow White. She was so pretty! The one who is hopefully recovering from a devastating addiction to meth dressed as a witch - complete with fishnet stockings and high heeled boots... some of her cleavage (with tattoos) is in the above photo. I took so many photos. It was priceless.

I am so grateful that things can change. I am so grateful that I didn't butt in (too much) last year when no one wanted anything to do with the "darker" daughter.

Your photo reminds me of the days my kids had to count their various candy as homework. I love giving out candy to the little ones. Don't like so much the pranks of teenagers.

I always wonder why my other children can not see the precious heart of their "darker sister". Don't they know how hard it is for her to be "her"? I wish I could all people in the same kind of light that I can see my "darker daughter"....but that's going to take a LOT more growth on my part...little kumquat

I'm so glad (and grateful) I dropped by to see your daughter's cleavage at 6am.
LOL

Celebrating Halloween is so much fun! It's the time adults can really act like the children they are without any reprecussions. Sounds like your family is healing nicely.

The "dark" daughter sounds interesting. Sometimes being different is just not recognized. Gotta love the tattooed cleavage though. Glad that this Halloween was a good one.
