We convinced them to wait until about 5 to put on their costumes - they were so excited! Claire was a fairy princess, and Will had asked for a dragon costume. I wasn't sure the dragon costume would make it to Halloween - he loved it and asked to try it several times before the actual day. Grandmommy, Nana & Granddaddy were all able to come over and see them in their costumes and for some pre-trick or treating photos.
Taking a bow
We met up with our neighbors to trick or treat, and made our way up and down our cul de sac and a few other houses nearby.
Our neighbors' girls are each a year older than Claire and Will, and they have so much fun together. The girls would take off from each house to the next, and Will would run as fast as his legs/costume would allow shouting "Wait for me! Wait for Will!"
We wrapped up our trick or treating and headed home to help Daddy and Granddaddy pass out candy.
Claire especially loves passing out candy to other trick or treaters - she would get so excited when she would see anyone coming up our street, and she would try to run out with the candy bowl shouting "Come over here! We have CANDY! FREE CANDY!"
