Another Halloween has come and gone, and it gets more fun every year as the girls grow! The next several years are going to be really fun as they really get into pumpkin carving, dressing up, and running around the neighborhood like crazy people.
We carved our pumpkin on Sunday night. Emma helped me scoop out the guts and drew the face with a sharpie, then I handled the carving and candle-lighting. I thought it turned out great! Charlotte supervised, and then excitedly grabbed a little plastic jack-o-lantern to announce “match! match!” Pretty cute stuff.
Yesterday morning, Charlotte got to trick-or-treat around the daycare with her class. I thought she might be a bit overwhelmed by all the chaos, but she enjoyed it! (I couldn’t get her to smile for a photo for the life of me, but she really did have fun.)
After work and school we hurried home for a costume change before heading to a friend’s house nearby for a party. There were people from all different places, and we didn’t know a lot of them but no matter — kids and candy make fast friends! After a group shot, the mob headed out for an hour of trick-or-treating.
We got home around 7:30 and I’d planned to take the girls to our neighbors’ houses, but Emma said she was tired so we decided to just call it a night! We got the girls into bed and then Jose and I spent the rest of the night watching the Astros game. It would’ve been nice to see them win it all last night — but that just means it’ll be even better when they win Game 7 tonight!
Happy Halloween! Till next year!
