Yesterday was cold and rainy so Trick-or-treating wasn't nearly as fun as we were all hoping it would be. We planned to go to a few people's houses that we knew and then one of us would take Chloe Jo trick-or-treating in our neighborhood while the other passed out candy. Since it was so cold and wet we decided to just go to a few houses of people we knew and skip the neighborhood trick-or-treating. It's not like our waistlines need candy anyway, right!?! Chloe Jo went into shy mode at each home we visited but she eventually came around and enjoyed getting candy from everyone!
I couldn't believe how many trick-or-treaters we had! I bought 1 large bag of candy thinking we wouldn't have many kids come to the door. I was wrong! Our Trick-or-treat was from 6 to 8 and I was out of candy by 7! I had a line at the door when I ran out and so I had to grab a few pieces from Chloe Jo's basket to finish with the kids that were already at the door. Then I promptly turned off the light and closed our front door! When we lived in Missouri we didn't have a single trick-or-treater the 4 years we lived there so I wasn't expecting all those kids! Halloween is my favorite holiday! I just love handing out candy and seeing all the kids and their costumes!
