I hope all of you enjoyed your Halloween weekend. We had great weather, and such a fun time! We attended a neighborhood parade that is usually led by a firetruck, but it didn’t show up this year. Needless to say, the kids still enjoyed the trick-or-treating, without the fire truck. W learned Halloween manners in preschool last week, how to say “trick-or-treat,” “please,” and “thank you.” One thing she didn’t learn was to take the candy she was given, and place it in her Halloween bag. She wanted to eat it right away. In her words, “I will eat it now.” One of my sisters (#3 of the 6) came with us, and she rewarded W with a Skittle for every piece of candy she put in her bag, instead of eating it. It was successful! Afterward we enjoyed dinner at a friend’s house, and headed home. Thankfully, W wasn’t on too much of a sugar high, so she went to bed at a decent hour. The decorations are down – cue the Christmas music!!
The in-laws came to trick-or-treat with the girls.

My parents came too! My Dad was snacking on a Jolly Rancher – hence, no smile.
