Of course the opposite of what I was worried about happened. Drew was scared of the spider I made him or upset that I converted his coat; I'm not sure. And as soon as Kelsey saw other kids dressing up, she wanted to be everything the other kids were. Kelsey walked the WHOLE subdivision, walking up to each house, after she got the hang of where to go and what to say. She jumped right in with the older kids. Drew took more breaks in the wagon, had some candy, and wasn't totally into the Halloween thing. My favorite thing about the trick or treating in this subdivision is that they put barricades up at the 3 entrances so there are no cars to worry about.
Drew slept through most of the trick or treat yesterday. But Kelsey was loving it again. She would walk up to the house with grandma or Auntie "Sandra", turn around after she got the goods and yell to me, "Mom! I got some more!" It was a bit more chilly yesterday than Saturday night. (This morning Kelsey grabbed her treat bag to bring to the sitter's, and of course I had emptied it. She looked in it and said, "candy all gone. I gotta get some more!" Oh dear, I may have opened a can of worms!)

Hey, that costume was genius - he was warm and toasty the whole night.

warm. He also called his outfit a robot - I guess a space robot.
