Houston Halloween: eating chili in 80 degree weather


No one needed to tell my kids how to trick or treat this year. They were pros. Lily was so thrilled with the big orange Tootsie Roll Pop she received at the first house, that at each subsequent stop she would stand on the doorstep, rummage through her bag to find it and hold it up while pronouncing, "TA-DA!" I think it got her extra candy. Although Zach was a little tired (and therefore cranky) the night of Halloween, it still made an impression. Yesterday, while I was tucking him into bed he asked, "Mom, when can we go trick or treating again?" and when I told him we'd have to wait until next year, he looked a little contemplative and said, "Yeah, I guess so, but it is a great great day!"

I know what you mean about 80 degrees. Brynlee didn't have sleaves and it she wasn't cold at all. I was sweating walking around because it was kind of humid. Your kids look so cute in their costumes! Hope you had a great Halloween!

Look at those cute kids!! Love their costumes and especially the expression on Lily's face!! It was crazy to go trick or treating in flip flops and short sleeves for us too.
