...literally. Hallowe'en 2013 in this part of the world happened during a huge rainstorm. Thankfully, Dave's work invites their employees' kids to come and trick or treat throughout the office on Hallowe'en afternoon. We spent an hour there and then went to about five houses last night. It was awful weather and I'm so glad the majority of our trick or treating was done indoors.
I decided to get all festive to supplement our McDonald's supper so each of us got a orange pepper jack-o-lantern. This was a Pinterest find but I decided we should eat ours rather than light them :) The idea for the ghosts below came from a Facebook friend. Sam and Rachel enjoyed making their ghosts scare Dave and I.
Then I attempted the near impossible task of getting two excited kids to pose for a picture in their costumes. That was pretty much a losing battle so I took what I could get! I was excited to have sturdy bags (with their names on them no less) for the kids to collect their candy in.
Rachel learned how to say "trick or treat" and it was pretty sweet. Sam nicely (and loudly!) said "Trick or Treat" and "thank you" to everyone who gave him candy. Hopefully next year will be better weather and we can enjoy our outdoor trick or treating experience a little more. How was Hallowe'en in your part of the world?
