Happy Halloween!

This was a first.  We went trick-or-treating in the snow!  Or, what was left of the big, freak snow storm we had this past Saturday.  It was a bit chilly outside, but the kids enjoyed themselves.  Hugo was kinda on the c-r-a-z-y, crazy side.  He darted from house to house while zig zagging across the street.  He wasn't a very good listener about staying with the group or close to me.  Hugo was a good listener about not eating any candy until we got home.  I was very proud of him.  On the drive home I let him choose a treat to eat from his candy sack, surprise, surprise Hugo chose a pop.

Our Halloween really began at 2 o'clock this afternoon when the girls and I watched Hugo and his classmates walk in a Halloween parade outside of his elementary school.  It was darling.  When Hugo finally saw us, he lit up, smiled and waved and waved!  So sweet. 

We spent Halloween with the Hoyt's this year.  Both our families also spent Halloween minus both our Papa's in toe.  We missed them!  So Jin and I joined brood camps for the trick-or-treating.  The plan was a pizza party here at our house and then to cram ourselves in the van and drive to the Lindsay's old neighborhood.  I just didn't know where else to go!  Jin, Amy and Hannah arrived bringing with them Keith's Mom Diane along for the night.  It was sure nice having an extra adult to help keep eyes on the kids.  I thought the girls would have walked up to the houses with their bags open wide, but no.  They were content sitting in their stroller with an occasional piece of candy tossed their way.   

While driving Hugo to school this morning, I asked him if pops were his favorite candy.  He answered, "Yes, and gum.  And I like cake, cupcakes, and cookies!"

Hugo is c-r-a-z-y cute at the Big Bad Wolf, and of course the girls are darling as little Reds. We just love Halloween, too. Great pictures, looks like you have a fun troop to trick-or-treat with!
