Happy Halloween and Trick-or-Treat!

Happy Halloween!  Or as it is fondly known in our house, free candy eating time! 

We endured a cold, rainy trick-or-treat time last night, but it was fun!  Eric's parents were visiting the last 4 days, hence why no blogging :)  So Eric's mom went with me, Molly, and Lucy trick-or-treating, and Eric and his dad stayed back and passed out candy and hot chocolate to the kids and adults that came our way.  It was kind of sad, not a lot of people participated in handing out candy on our street, so we didn't get a lot of trick-or-treaters.  Even if you are not a Halloween fan, it's still a great way to connect with your neighbors.  Hopefully next year!  I am amazed at 2 things about Halloween in our neighborhood...
#1- How many people decorate their house, and then don't hand out candy, really?
#2- How many people still do not understand the whole porch light rule!  On means you give out candy and Off means you do not, it is that simple people!  So many people had theirs on, but no one came to the door, and so many had theirs off, yet kept walking out to give out candy.  On or off people, really!

Molly had a blast and looked cute in her Sleeping Beauty outfit.  My step-mom, Denise aka Neesie, made the girls' costumes this year.  Molly was Sleeping Beauty and Lucy was a little fairy.  We wore them to a Halloween party at Molly's school last week, and everyone commented on how cute they were, I know, thank you :)

It was so cold and with the down pour of rain, we decided to forgo Lucy's costume, she wore flannel pajamas, a winter jacket and hat wrapped in a fleece blanket in the stroller, but Molly wore her costume.  The crown made it about 2 houses, then she took that out.  Molly was so funny, if someone gave her a piece of candy that she didn't like, she would kindly give it back to them and ask for a different piece, ha!  At least she always said thank you!

Whether you trick-or-treated already, don't partake in Halloween, or what have you, I hope you get some candy at some point today, because candy always taste good, especially when it is free!  

 Being goofy!
 Did you notice the haircut :)
 Short and sassy!

     Getting ready to head out Trick-or-Treating!

Wow, that is a beautiful costume! LOL about Molly handing her candy back :D And so true about candy being good, no matter if you go trick or treating or not. Ha! Totally agree on the porch light rules too! LOL!

I'm not a huge fan of Halloween, but the girls love to dress up any time of the year and that's the only reason they love Halloween, so I guess we will keep doing it every year!

What a bummer it was so cold! And rainy! That's so funny Molly would give the candy back!
