Halloween was a lot of fun this year. Anna really got the whole concept this time, though she may be muddling her holidays a bit–the day before, we were talking about trick-or-treating and she asked me, “Will Santa be there?” We clarified that Santa would not in fact be present and thankfully she was cool with that. Max has been steadfast for months that he wanted to be a bear this year. It was surprisingly hard to find a child-size bear costume. There are plenty of toddler-sized ones, but I had a really hard time finding a good one for him. Thankfully eBay came to my rescue and he was thrilled. We have a firm rule that once your costume is purchased you can’t change your mind. The only exception to this is costumes we already own. So Anna went back and forth on a few options that we had on hand, and finally settled on being a chicken. The costume is so cute and it was nice and warm, which was good as we were trick-or-treating on a cool, rainy evening.
It was so fun to see them eagerly walking around our neighborhood, knocking on doors and calling “Trick or treat!” and thanking neighbors for the candy they received. We brought it home to sort through and sample. Anna enjoyed sharing hers and directed us to each take one bite of a few things, “But don’t eat all of it, okay?”
Here they are!
