This year was by far the BEST year of trick or treating yet. The kids were able to walk the entire time, say "Trick or Treat!" and "Thank you!" for their treats. They enjoyed seeing the other kids all dressed up and going house to house. The weather being in the 60's definitely helped. We didn't need to layer all the clothing or wear jackets even...just long sleeved shirts and their costumes were plenty. The kids had enough about half way through our second block so Ben went back to grab the van while the kids, Kate and I finished up the block. It started to sprinkle just in time to hop in the van to go visit some family then grab a quick dinner before heading to the high school for the Halloween Costume Contest...last year for us to participate as a theme but the kids are already picking out what they want to be next year!
