Trick or Treat

I love Halloween night.  I remember being so excited about trick-or-treating when I was young that I would barely be able to eat dinner.  I also remember loving Halloween because that meant my  mom would put make-up on me.  Elle and Gwen lined up in front of the mirror before they headed out the door for some blush, mascara and lip gloss.  They were in heaven! Our neighborhood is a really fun one on Halloween.  Lots of kids, parents and grandparents trick-or-treating.  I love it.  We went to the pumpkin patch earlier in the day where the girls each picked out their own pumpkins.  While Gwen napped, Elle and I carved the jack-o-lanterns.  When it got dark, Jon took Elle and Gwen up and down our neighborhood streets while Lily and I passed out candy.  They came home with bags full of candy and very sticky faces.  A successful night for sure.
