Our Halloween turned out pretty great! Andrew got off work early, so we spent some time together as a family and hopped over to our neighbor’s house for some pumpkin carving, then down the street to our neighborhood cul-de-sac Halloween party! It was a pot-luck dinner complete with bouncy house! After that, we went trick-or-treating, and Chelsea had so much fun running from house to house with a big smile on her face as she sweetly said “Trick-or-Treat,” and “Thank you!” I am often proud of my daughter’s polite manner. :)
This little gal got tuckered out pretty fast and didn’t make a peep the entire night!
There was one house we stopped at that had really great decorations! One of their decorations was a big spider that would jump at you if you got too close! Chelsea just froze up, but little Spider-Man took about 20 steps back!
We probably saw about 20 Elsa’s, a couple of Anna’s, and a million Spider Man’s. Guess we know what was popular this year! Oh! And did I mention that the weather was perfect? There’s nothing worse than having an amazing costume and then having to cover it up with a bulky jacket!
When all the trick-or-treating was done, it was nice to put the kiddos to bed and spend some adult time with Andrew’s sister (who had AMAZING skeleton makeup that scared Chelsea pretty good) and her husband and our neighbors. Everyone humored me when I suggested we play “Harry Potter: Scene It,” but I think we all had a little bit of fun anyway.
This Halloween was a lot different than the Halloween’s of the past. Chelsea understood the whole concept a little better and the way her face lit up when one house gave us water? Priceless.
