I got all the kids dressed in their costumes, and we drove to Kyle’s work for trick or treating!
This year they marked all the desks of people that had candy to pass out with a balloon, which made it easy to see at a glance where to go. 🙂
When we been to every desk that had treats, we decided to make a quick visit to Granny’s. I needed some more mint leaves to finish with the apples that I have been working on and I didn’t know when we would next be able to get some. Granny was happy to see us, and liked all of the kid’s costumes.
We ended up being at Granny’s house longer than planned, but we really weren’t surprised about that. Then we had to swing back by Kyle’s work to pick up our candy basket, Kyle’s computer bag, and the car. I sat in the van with the kids while Kyle ran up to get his stuff. Since trick or treated had ended in the office he came out with a surprise.
I took the kids home, and had trick or treaters before I even finished unloading the van. Kyle took a bit longer to get home because he had to stop off and pick up the pizza dinner. After he got home we tried to make the kids eat some pizza, but it seems like Halloween is the ONLY day of the year that they just won’t eat it! They are just too excited to get out and start trick or treating to want to eat. But after getting them to eat some, Kyle took them out while I stayed home to pass out candy. We live in a neighborhood, where there are so many kids that I never get to work on cleaning anything in between groups of trick or treaters, aside from maybe the entry way. I can never get from the door to out of the entry way, before there is another group knocking!
Kyle brought the kids back to the house for a break, after awhile. I got a picture of them all on the porch with their pumpkins since we hadn’t been able to do that earlier.
Then leaving the little ones with me, Kyle took the bigger kids out to do just a bit more of the neighborhood.
Does that look like a sugar high face or what? Kyle and the other kids finally got home, and we called it a night. 🙂
