The Best Halloween

Esme's 1st Candy

*Eli and Esme went together since she can walk this year.  And they understood, they were jumping and bouncing with excitement while we got them ready.

*Speaking of getting them ready, ahhhh.  They wanted the same costumes, a duty free halloween for me.

*It was so warm!  And light outside thanks to daylight savings.  No freezing kids with coats over their costumes.

*People were so friendly.  All kinds of kids were yelling "Hi, Eli!" It took an hour to walk our short block because we kept talking and going in people's houses.  We only ended up doing two blocks.

*Neighbors were so generous.  The old owners of our house called to warn us it would be crazy busy with trick-or-treaters, but people told the kids to take several candies and even gave us parents some.  There were even a couple of houses that gave whole candy bars, I thought that was just legend.  And one house had hot dogs and cider for everyone while another had a bounce house set up.  It was amazing!

Wow! That sounds like the best Halloween a kid could ask for. How fun! I'm so glad you are liking your new house and neighborhood so much.
