Halloween is here!
The pumpkins are done
I had to work the night before, but I brought some Halloween-themed treats in
The kids went to school in costume, Nick with his tie-fighter and Katheryn as Princess Aurora.
When the kids got home from daycare we had to eat quickly and then reapply makeup, and Katheryn had to do a quick wardrobe change.
Then it was time to start trick or treating!
The kids had their giant hands that we've used for the last couple of years
And the kids were ready to go!
Of course we needed to get a group picture first!
X-wing fighter, Darth Nickolas and Elsa
We left our pumpkins and candy on the porch and then headed out!
First stop was Grandma and Papa's house!
We had a routine as we went.
I would go up to the door with Katheryn (until Katheryn ditched us for another family), and Nick would yell "Happy Halloween" or "Trick or Treat" from the bottom of the stairs. I would have his bag, and then Nick would say Thank You.
It worked out well. And Nick had fun
When Katheryn left us, and it was just me going to the door, I got some strange looks, but usually I stepped away from the door so they would see Nick.
Some people came right out, one neighbor stopped and told me about a local accessible farm, and a group of teenagers loved Nicks costume and wanted a picture. We have 2 houses in our neighborhood who have ramps, so we made sure to go to them, so Nick could actually knock on the door.
The weather was beautiful (for the first time in a long time) and we went out to about twice as many houses as we have before. So half way through Kyle ran home to get a pillow case so we could dump the candy in.
When we got home, Katheryn dumped her candy into our (empty) candy bowl.
Nick was so happy with all of the candy he got, it was such a fun night for them! We were out for 2 hours
They are both already talking about what they want to be next year!
