Well, I don't normally post pictures of my kids, but since they're all incognito, I thought it might be ok this time around.  Aren't they cute!
We went with Little Man's buddy, WB.  Their neighborhood is ideal for chasing after candy.  They had lots of energy starting out.  After about the 10th or 12th house, the energy waned a bit.
Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!
This was the haul that Little Man brought in after we called it quits after the 15th or 20th house or so.  Monkey continued on to about 5 more houses.  Her bucket was overflowing... 
The sugar-induced drunkeness began shortly thereafter.  We left WB's 'hood and headed to another friend's house where they were having a bonfire and s'mores.  I didn't get any pictures because by then I was exhausted and just wanted to sit by the fire.  We didn't even get home until about 9:45 or so and the kids went straight to bed - face paint and all.
All in all, it was a good night.

Hi Pete,
Thanks for visiting! Halloween is so much fun, we love it around here.
Have a great day!

Fabulous face painting there Kool Aid!
And "sugar-induced drunkeness" - I love it!
I have to say, the children who came knocking on our door this Hallween were the politest bunch of trick or treaters I've ever come across.
A pleasure to be scared by them!

Thanks Tara,
Unfortunately, Little Man wasn't the most polite little monster. He would grab multiple handfuls of candy - even if someone was handing them out - and forget to say "Thank you."

Next year, Trey will take the kids out walking and I'll hand out the candy. Seeing all the trick-or-treaters is my favorite part. I'm glad your evening was fun, too!
