Wowzers, is there a holiday more tailored to kids than Halloween? Fun costumes, pumpkin patches, wacky decorating, hanging with your friends in the neighborhood, staying up late, running everywhere, and candy candy candy. Yeah, any way you slice it Halloween is a dang good day in kidville.
Ro and Ree still had a smidge of homework to do after school on Halloween, so they quickly got it out of the way (in costume, naturally -- seeing a tropical angelfish doing homework tickled my funnybone):
Then my folks came over for a quick pre-trick-or-treat dinner (and Ree tried to explain Dragonvale to BobBob, with questionable success):
Now that the pesky real-food thing was out of the way, it was time for the main event. Oh yeah!
The first door... oh the suspense... would it open? (it did, whew):
After a few houses, the peacock, tropical angelfish, viking princess, and little brother were joined by good friend Minnie Mouse:
And then had to take the first of many candy breaks:
There was more trick or treating, and then another candy break. Repeat, repeat, I don’t even know how many times.
And at the end of the night, everyone was full, happy, and tired from walking to so many houses. Ahhhhh, another great Halloween.
Oh, and then there was one more little thing. At 9pm -- fueled by an incredible candy high -- little Ree decided that the hamster needed a costume too. She came running down from the playroom with this tiny Barbie-apron-turned-cape. Bwa ha! Now that’s a good look for him:
Happy Halloween everyone. Hope you all got to sneak your fave candies from your kiddo’s treat stash. What’s your favorite, by the way? I have such a hard time resisting those treat buckets of deliciousness and go for anything chocolately (in order I steal: mini Hershey’s bars, Snickers, KitKat, Twix). Mmmmm, maybe I’ll go raid something right now... Shhhh!
