As is our tradition we all headed over to my parents house for trick or treating again this year. For the first time ever one of the kids was not with us, Beth, sadly was still in LA modeling. But Daniel and his girlfriend Megan were able to join us, even though they are now in their 20’s.
I’m not really sure what the kids were dressing up as, Thomas was just happy that he got to walk around carrying his sword. Since it is actually a real sword it is delegated to his bedroom and never allowed outside, normally.
There’s mom preparing our Baileys and coffee for the long walk. Mom, Dan and I still walk around with the kids, while Dad stays at the house passing out candy. The Bailey’s and coffee to-go make walking in the cold even more enjoyable!
And this is why the swords are not allowed out of the bedroom, you never know when Thomas may attack!
Here’s Daniel and Megan, aren’t they cute together? Daniel did make the comment that he thought this would be his last year going door to door for candy. Since he’ll be 21 next Halloween he thinks that’s a good time to stop. Dad will finally have someone to help him pass out the candy.
We were so happy Megan could join us, she lives in a little tiny town in Ohio about 2 hours away. Not only has she not been trick or treating since she was 12 years old (can you imagine?) but also she has never trick or treated at night since in her town they do it from 2-4. Now that’s just silly!
Thomas got all 16 pounds of his candy sorted by type. You wouldn’t want all that candy comingling!
