This evening we went..... wait for it... yup I'm sure you've guessed it... trick or treating! We went to Grandma and Grandpa's neighborhood (it's become a tradition I think!) because our neighborhood seems to go all out - one house builds a haunted house and lots of them decorate and I just think it might be too scary for Abby and Micah. I don't want to ruin the fun part of Halloween and give them something to be scared about. Grandma and Grandpa's neighborhood is much less of the scary stuff and more just cool pumpkins. One house did have halloween music going and one had dry ice to make a cool misty effect but none of it was too scary.
We got to Grandma and Grandpa's a little early since the kids were getting restless at home and we spent some time playing in the back yard. Can you see 2 of Micah's 2 and 1/2 teeth?
Micah invited himself right in to the first house we went to - he went straight for the puppy dog. Good thing it was one of the neighbors that Grandma and Grandpa are good friends with. It was pretty much the same this year as the previous two years where Abby is perfectly happy just trick or treating for houses with puppies. Both kids were totally thrilled whenever the house would have a dog they could love on. There were quite a few puppies to love on along the way so they were happy little trick or treaters.
I think this might have been my favorite year trick or treating so far because of how much Micah really enjoyed it. Abby has been shy and not as in to trick or treating in previous years. This year she enjoyed it more than previous years but tired of it early. I only wish Daddy could have been with us to enjoy it as well.
