It hardly seems like a month (well, almost two!) have passed since Halloween. Time is flying by as we race toward the end of the year, I guess.
We kicked off the holiday with a visit to the Rancho Santa Margarita Fall Festival. Marla made some treats and worked at the Mom’s Club booth while the costumed kids and I wandered the festival for candy, some Boo Bowling and a little tractor racing. I love the look of concentration and exhileration on Emma’s face as she approaches the finish line.
The big night arrived and it was time to head out for some trick-or-treating. Henry insisted on carrying his “crumpkin” around by himself. By the end of the night it looked like the crumpkin was hauling him around. Emma did a darling, sing-song “Trick-or-treat!” at every door while Henry went for the more direct, “Treat!”
We arrived back home safe and sound and with a record setting take. The kids had a bite or two of candy (I took the rest to work shortly after) and all was right with the world.
