Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet....

Oh wait, this is for my toddlers.... Well, we have been vomit free for over 24 hours, so we ventured out for Halloween! We dressed up our little dragons, and hit the neighborhood! However, before we left, we tried to get a couple of photos of the kids in their costumes. Preston wants nothing to do with sitting still, now that he is walking well, and almost running!

We started off going to Steve's parent's house. Bennett loaded up on candy there, stuffing a ton of it into her plastic pumpkin. They both got to sample a little of it there too, and wanted MORE! We had to bribe them that they could get even more if we left.

So we drove over to some friends who were having a party and enjoyed some delish chili and much needed socialization. After awhile we loaded up the kiddos in the wagon, and hit West Glenwood. It is a crazy fun street on Halloween. All of the homes get into it, and the police shut down the street since there are over a thousand people on it at once (we went there last year too). Bennett hit a couple of houses, but then found the people watching more interesting, and opted to look around instead. Preston kept trying to climb out of the wagon, so we ended up strapping him into a stroller (which he did NOT like)! Not much later, in the midst of the chaos, Bennett became a little scared so we turned around and headed for home.

We got home just in time to pass out some candy to other children, and Bennett loved handing each of the kids a few pieces. We felt guilty for not being there again this year, so we left a bowl full with a note to help themselves. So you can imagine my amazement when we returned home 3 hrs later to a bowl that still had candy in it! Who would have thought? I figured for sure some high school kids (who are too old to be trick or treating) would dump the whole bowl in their pillowcase.
I am happy that I was wrong, and even more happy that the kids were well enough to enjoy this fun holiday. I hope all of you enjoyed your Halloween!
