Trick or Treat!

Halloween brought lots of fun and way too many treats!  We did something different this year and went trick or treating in our friends from small group's, (Marcie and Nick's) neighborhood.  We have always just stuck to our own subdivision, but thought it would be more fun for all of us to go with other kids and parents.  It was definitely a good decision!  The neighborhood was full of people sitting on their front porches ready to hand out candy, a whole area with several bouncy houses and slides for all kids, and lots of great company!  Marcie and Nick had everyone over for some pre-trick or treating treats!  All of which were delicious!  There is nothing like decorated sugar cookies!  My favorite!  We started this fun experience though with a special stop at Nana and Ada's house!  It was a perfect way to start the evening!  Nothing like a huge handful of candy from the grandparents to pump up the adrenaline and need for more! 
Now...introducing...the two scariest dragons alive!  One is hiding behind a plant in this first picture!





Easton looked like a little pro!  He didn't need any help!  He just walked on up to the houses, held out his basket, and walked away once he got his share!  So sweet!  Once he found a candy in someone's yard.  From then on, he did a mini-search as he exited the yards just to make sure he didn't miss one.  Their were some times too when someone would put a piece in his bucket and he would go ahead and stop and get it back out.  It was as though he was saying, "I think I will have this now!"  So sweet!

 Parker really enjoyed himself, too!  He at one point, turned around at someone's doorstep and yelled back to us adults that this was the best Halloween ever!!!  He loved it! 

The adults dressed up, too!  We both went as things we had been in the past.  Costumes can be so expensive.  I was a very warm whoopie cushion, and Steven was a pirate!
