Trick or Treating Together

This year was Connor's first Halloween. He didn't seem to make a big deal out of it... although I bet he was excited on the inside and just pretending to be cool on the outside.

Sophie got to be a princess this year and was excited about the prospect of going Trick or Treating. She started to tell me all the 'rules & procedures' surrounding Trick or Treating (i.e. say 'thank you' or you won't get candy, you have to say 'Trick or Treat' first to get candy, etc...).

Brian came with us this year and was a huge help carting the kiddos around and later taking them door to door. With Sophie as his excuse and Connor as his 'wing man', Brian increased candy output by 10%. (Spreadsheet to follow).

Favorite quote of the day from Sophie: "Mommy... I GOT SNICKERS! Everybody likes Snickers. Do you like Snickers? I like Snickers." (as we are walking away from the house which apparently had Snickers candy bars in their distribution bucket).

Needless to say they brought home plenty of candy. Here is a picture of them with their 'loot'.

Connor then promptly fell asleep. Sophie took a big longer. My guess is that it took a bit before the sugar rush from the Skittles dissipated.

Hope everyone had a great Halloween!
