We had another fun Halloween. I’m often tempted to drag our family to every fun (free) activity that comes our way, but I’m proud to say, we kept things pretty low key this year. We passed on a couple of activities and focused on the neighborhood party and ToTing afterwards.
Here’s the gang before we headed out.
As you can see Adam was quite grumpy. He refused to wear the adorable homemade Lamb costume I created, but did allow me to dress him in an old cow costume we had.
Here’s a close-up of Optimus Prime:
And here we have Mary, Mother of Jesus:
Take special note of blue-eyed long-lashed Baby Jesus.
Thanks to the delayed onset of Daylight Savings Time, we were able to party in daylight and get some cute shots of the kids.
In addition to cute kid costumes, many of the adults had great costumes too.
Finally, it was time to get down to the business of trick-or-treating!
We headed out in a big group with 10-15 kids and a gaggle of parents.
Even Adam knew what to do and was willing to walk up the paths and hold out his candy bag.
Finally, back home, it was time to count and sort the loot.
Even though they hit the same number of houses, somehow Sam managed to snag a bigger take.
Adam’s take was much less, but he didn’t seem to mind.
After having a few treats, I told the bigger kids to pick their 20 favorite pieces, which we bagged up and labeled with their name.
The rest of it is going to the Candy Fairy, who will be delivering it to soldiers via Treats for Our Troops. I weighed the bag of candy and it was over 8 lbs!
