It was a doozy of a Halloween. It wasn’t just a dreary day, but a stormy, day with lots of rain. The rain let up enough in the early evening that we took Kaitlyn and Ben up to the Common for some trick or treating (but that was only for children under the age of 10). My photographer friend has a studio on the Common and was “treating” with photos of kids in costumes. Her shots were adorable. Then we ran the two littlest kids to the Community Center for some indoor trick or treating.
I got Ben and Kaitlyn into their pajamas and snuggled in with a movie. They were so happy to answer the door and hand out candy while Wade took the big boys out trick or treating door to door. It was a win-win for most of us (maybe not for Wade). When the big boys got home, they did some candy trading with Kaitlyn and then it was off to bed to warm up.
