After trick or treating the next door neighbors, we went to a house party at our new friends’ house… six adults, eight kids, a few drinks, and lots of snacks and candy make for a great time! The kids had a ball trick or treating in the dark with their little friends – six of them with glow sticks wrapped around their necks, toting their loot bags around until they were full and literally overflowing into parents’ bags. They were beside themselves.
Even mommy and daddy got in on the fun. We found out the other adults would be dressed up so we threw together a construction worker and scarecrow … rather last minute, but it worked!
And another! “Oliver, show me your best Darth Vader pose!”I was worried Eleanor’s costume wouldn’t fit but I could not stop laughing at how cute she was in it. Cutest darned ice cream cone I’ve ever seen! She didn’t mind wearing it at all. She’s always a good sport.
The kids were up too late and ate too much candy, and we definitely paid for that a bit today, but they made friends, we made friends, and we all spent the evening with smiles on our faces. That’s enough for me!
