We met up with our usual trick-or-treating friends, Addison and her cousin, Kylie, for some free candy time. Because of some local high school football games in our area, alot of the houses in the neighborhood we visited were not home, but the girls still got tons of candy (see below)! Alise started complaining before we even left the house that her costume was itching her (she can't stand for anything to be sticking or itching her), so I put a t-shirt on her. I am so glad that I did, because it got really cool while we were trick-or-treating. Wayne and Clint went with us, so we moms had "protection" this year. It was the first year that they went and after seeing golf carts and trailers with hay rides speeding from house to house, the guys decided that we were going all out next year...we're going to have our own little trailer and hayride with lights and everything!! We were excited that the dads got such a kick out of going with us!
The Horton Halloween party got moved to the Adamses, which was fine with me, because they have so much more room than we do. We had chili, frito pies, and cheese dip. We didn't get home last night until 11:00. I know three little girls that were worn completely out! We had a great Halloween! Alise told me on the way home last night-nearly asleep-"Mommie, I had so much fun tonight!" It made my week.
Now. About the candy. Alise's princess candy holder thingy literally broke. Luckily, we were able to find a Target bag and so that's what Baby Girl had to end up using for the rest of the night.
I read on someone's blog that said they let their children keep ten pieces of candy and then they "donated" the remainder of the candy to an organization for children who did not receive any Halloween candy. That sounded like such a good deal to me. The Horton's do not need all this candy!
I hope you had a GREAT HALLOWEEN!!
