Trick or Treat

Trick-or-treating was a hit! Sophie talked about it all day today. She got a little practice in at the story time at our local library where the kids got to walk through the community center and get treats. Tonight was the real thing, though, and it was great! We bundled Sophie up in multiple layers under her angel/fairy costume because it was really cold today (for the first time in days!). We visited a few neighborhood homes and then headed to church for the big church "Harvest Fest." There were people lined up in the hallways giving out candy, and there was a big carnival in the gym. Sophie and Greg waited in line for 10 minutes to get a helium balloon, which was gracing the ceiling withing 2 minutes of finally getting it. I think Greg was more sad than Sophie. We ended at our friend Lydia's house so the girls could see each other's costumes. They enjoyed comparing loot and greeting a few trick-or-treaters at the door. When asked what her favorite thing of the night was, Sophie replied, "Suckers!" She had two, which she pretty much worked on the whole night. Bedtime (which did not occur until 9 pm!) has never been so difficult!! But it was all worth it!

I'm so glad you guys had such a great time! Sophie and Owen looked adorable. It made me laugh to see Sophie's costume with all the bulky layers underneath-- I always hated that!! I love that you guys took the traditional "lookatallmyloot!" picture at the end. Love you!
