I had every intention of getting this post out much earlier in the week, but life happens and busy schedules get in the way. Oh well... better late than never right?
This year we went over to Jake's brother and sister-in-law's house for Trick or Treating. They purchased a home in St. Peters, MO (a suburb outside of St. Louis) earlier this year and since we're still in the condo, we decided to trick or treat in their new neighborhood with them. Jake's other brother and sister-in-law, his mom, his sister-in-law's parents, my parents and my sister and brother-in-law and all of the kids of course, went trick-or-treating together! It was a really fun time and the kids got a ton of candy!
When we first headed out, it was sprinkling a little but the temperature was nice and we didn't even need a jacket! The rain did finally stop and it ended up being a really nice evening for trick-or-treating.
Jackson said "Trick-or-Treat" at just about every house and also said "Thank You" after getting his candy. I told him on more than one occasion before Halloween night that this was the nice and polite thing to say for Trick-or-Treating and I'm glad he used his manners. :-) He had a great time with all of his cousins!!
This was Avery's first year of Trick-or-Treating and she did GREAT! It only took her a couple of houses before she became an old pro! She loved it and was pushing her way through her cousins to be front and center at every door! She gladly took the candy from each house and quickly became very protective of her bucket. :-)
We had a great time Trick-or-Treating this year and are looking forward to it again next year!
There were a couple of homes that had a blow-up Mickey Mouse that Avery just LOVED! She wanted to go right up to them and touch them. She loves her some Mickey Mouse!!
