We took the kids trick-or-treating for the first time last night. Basically we just walked one block over and went up and down the street, then back home. I told them afterwards that I have been waiting a very, very long time for this night and how happy I was it had arrived, sticky candy fingers and all. And it's true. They picked up "trick or treat" fairly quickly and also said "thank you" a lot. Seeing other kids in costume was very exciting, and, of course, "candy!" The only hitch was that they didn't want to walk. Next year we may resort to a wagon. My arms are tired.
I had to paint April's face after doing Simone's. So I enhanced her eyebrows and put a dot on her nose.
April yelled at me every time I gave away candy at the door. Heh.

My family has a story about the time I got my sister to stick Reese's Pieces up her nose--which resulted in a trip to Urgent Care. In other words, everything they tell you about your kids being the revenge of your parents is true. (No urgent care visit from the incident pictured, however.)
