This is only the second year since we’ve had kids that we’ve done Halloween. Adeline’s first Halloween was also the day we found out we were expecting Lucy, and we went to a friend’s to hang out.
Last year we didn’t do anything, Adeline was too little to care and we lived in a scary part of town, not somewhere that walking around with two little kids after dark was a good idea.
This year, though? We did it. Decorations, a carnival, a pumpkin, trick-or-treating, the works.
Apparently trick-or-treat doesn’t start until late here, so we only went to six houses. Adeline got a kick out of all the kids coming to get candy. I think the whole dressing up part totally went over her head. But she had fun with her butterfly cos-spoon and is still talking about Have-a-bean.
