Happy Halloween

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

These are a few pictures from last night. For some weird reason, our community always trick-or-treats on the Thursday before Halloween! My kids had a wonderful time, even though it was absolutely freezing. My little guy made it about 70 minutes before he came home and helped me pass out candy. My daughter always goes the entire two hour period and came home with her record number of candy pieces ever -- 231. She was on a major mission to "beat" last year.

I don't know if any of you noticed, but my son dressed up as a UPS man! He decided on this costume way back in July and I couldn't change his mind. I guess he was heavily influenced by the number of times the UPS man visits our house each week. Instead of using a pumpkin to collect his candy, I cut a hole into a box I received from Miriam at Hachette Book Group. He kept saying that he was bringing his mommy a box of books. He was definitely a big hit!

Your kids look adorable! Love the UPS guy costume...that's so funny!!
My son isn't that thrilled about Trick or Treat this year as he can't eat the candy due to his allergies...I blogged about it today. How does your son handle it with the allergies? We have to trade him for all of his candy as the residue from the nuts is all over the "safer" candy!

I love their outfits, especially that UPS costume. Where on earth did you find it?

BTW, our crazy town always, always goes with a different night -- regardless of what day Halloween falls upon. There's always *some* reason to change it. This year . . . well, football night is Friday, of course.
