Trick or Treat!

by Julie

Today is October 31st which, for many who celebrate, is Hallowe'en. It's been a few years since my kids trick-or-treated, but we have fond memories of those days. My husband used to come home early from work to take the girls out door-to-door with their friends, while I stayed home to man the front door and hand out treats. Today I'm usually home alone on Halloween and starting at around 3:00 in the afternoon, the doorbell never stops. Needless to say, I get very little work done that day!

I decided to pull out a few photos from when the kids were younger and share them here today.
Ah, the good old days!

Even Dad dressed up a few times!

Our daughters and our best friends' daughters hanging out with the pumpkins, some years ago.

Daughters #1 and 2 are above left, with Daughter #1 in the dress I refitted from Dad's costume (top). All three girls are above right. Notice how we cleverly recycled the bunny costume, too. Our youngest was not impressed :)

This was our youngest's favorite costume (or at least as much as I can find of it right now).
She was Super Crustacean that year. And won first prize in a costume contest!

What are some of your favorite Halloween memories?
