Halloween 2009

We couldn't have asked for better weather. It felt so nice to be outside, walking around while the kids ran from door to door getting candy. Our friends came trick or treating with us, and we had a fun time together. They brought the Ghostbuster costumes that Rich and our friend Dan dressed up in, with the blow up ectopack (?) or something strapped to their backs. Kade was Obi Wan Kenobi, Ty was Luigi and Zack the black spider. This was Zack's first year of trick or treating, he stayed home with me last year and passed out candy. It took him a few houses to realize that we put the candy in the bucket and don't just eat as we go. Once he figured out the process he was all over it. He'd run up and pick and treat and run back and throw it in the bucket I was holding for him and then turn and run back to get more treats to put in his bucket. That's when I'd have to grab him and turn him towards the next house. :) Our friends suggested going to a senior living center after we went through the neighborhood. It was so fun, and something we'll try to do every Halloween. The people living there loved seeing the kids and they all had their bucket of treats to pass out. I'm so glad we went.
