After a rainy and blustery day, it turned into the perfect, balmy trick-or-treating night, full moon and all. It was warm enough that we didn't even need to stuff winter coats under the costumes.
Here they are!
Reed said all month that he wanted to be a monster for Halloween, but when it came time to try on costumes, he wanted none of it. (He's one of those kids who refuses to wear hats, long sleeves, or any kind of jacket.) He wouldn't even touch the costume I bought for him, so we compromised on Jonathan Papelbon, his (my) favorite Red Sox player. He got really into it and even carried his baseball glove around for a while.
All month, Slyler had been telling me she wanted to be a bush. A bush? Yes, like a shrub. And I could not figure out how to pull that off, so I was psyched when she came up with the pink crayon idea. That, I can do!
We did our street and then another neighborhood loop, and we were DONE trick-or-treating by 6:15. Yes!
That's one tired crayon.
Looking forward to seeing pictures of everyone else's costumes! Happy Halloween!
