We had a great time at the Trunk or Treat at the church. Talk about a sweet deal. My kids ended up with tons of candy in about 5 minutes and they didn't even have to climb a single stair.
It left us with a little time to do some hard core Trick-or-Treating in our apartment complex with some good friends. I really wanted to knock on the door of our old apartment and see how the new occupants were treating it, but they had a sign that they were out of candy. I still considered knocking and pretending I was a vacuum salesman out on my rounds but I was worried that after seeing the Proton Pack they might actually want me to turn it on.
Besides, anyone who knows anything would assume that we were exterminators.
Of course my daughters, who take after their mother, know that Halloween is the best day of the year because of the CANDY! They raked in a bunch and now I remember why we thought it was a good idea to have kids. With two of them going at a steady pace they (and what I mean by that is we) ended up with quite the stash. I'm already looking forward to next year when Rosy can start pulling her load. Speaking of our little Slimer, she spent most of the evening this year snuggled up in her daddy's arms, snoozing. I tried to get a decent photo but it was a lost cause. This is only half of her costume, but it is the better part.
It was a fantastic Halloween and was followed by another favorite, dia de los muertos. It was kind of a long day of me being sick so we didn't accomplish my lifelong dream of being in Mexico to celebrate the Day of the Dead, but I did pull it together enough in the evening to make it to the campus party, which was a pleasant consolation prize.
Bonus: We are going to have to take all our pictures in the bathroom because it is the only room with decent lighting...and because it is the most popular room in our place.
