This year’s Halloween plans were much the same as last year’s. Eventually. I had booked us a fun family trip that would have been a really different sort of Halloween experience but that fell through. I was bummed out, but at least the kids did not know about it and I’ve already rescheduled for after the first of the year. It feels like I’ve been doing nothing but scheduling and rescheduling things lately. I’ve got things coming in the weeks ahead but nothing yet to reveal. But it is good.
As far as Halloween night, we had a great time trick or treating with our friends. This year, however, we picked up some pizza and ate there before going out in their neighborhood searching for candy. The kids came home with a right proper haul of sugar in various forms. We had our moments with the kids and safety but for the most part they were very well behaved. We were actually back around 8pm and got everyone to bed at almost their normal time. Not too many pieces of candy before bed either, and I include myself in that.
Andrew was a fireman and Eva was Belle but she was also a student at Hogwarts and had her own hand made outfit on over her Belle dress.
