Max, Annie, and Charlie started planning for Halloween the day that we received the first costume catalog in the mail...which may have been in late September. Max and Annie seemed to change their minds about what they would be dressing up as every 2 days. Finally, they settled on a pink butterfly, a "scary" skeleton, and Percy.
Annie's favorite thing about this Halloween was her costume. She absolutely loved it! Lucky for me, Crazy 8 put their costumes on sale very early....before they sold out of her size.
Max's favorite thing this year was trick-or-treating with cousins and all of his friends in the neighborhood...on a school night!
Charlie was only interested in the candy (imagine that!). He was not a fan of walking from house to house. Lucky for him, he didn't have to walk as much as some children.
After the first two years of walking the entire neighborhood, we finally figured out the trick.
*Attach a trailer to the back of the truck
*throw in some blankets and folding chairs
*fill the travel mugs with hot chocolate and whipped cream
Now that is the way to trick-or-treat!
After a bowl of potato soup and some brownies, we headed out.
We stayed out for about an hour and a half. By then, their buckets were full and we were freezing.
Hope you had a wonderful Halloween!
