The kids went real trick-or-treating this year, for the first time in their lives, and they LOVED it! They hit about four streets here in our neighborhood and brought home eight-and-a-half pounds of candy. It was ridiculous! People were handing out candy by the handful.
One of our neighbors brought their horse in to give the kids a ride up and down the street. Raine loved riding it but Carter wanted nothing more than to touch it on the leg.
The night before Halloween we went to the party hosted by the church that runs Raine’s school, Temple Baptist Church. She saw lots of her friends and her teacher was running one of the games. There was also an amazing balloon artist there who made the kids some cute balloons — after waiting in line WAY too long.
The Friday before Halloween we went to the River Trails/Hurst 1st Wards’ joint party at the Howard’s urban acreage. It was the perfect location for such a party, with its grassy paths winding through the trees where adults set up chairs to hand out candy.
Here are some photos from our pumpkin carving:
