Trick-Or-Treat...


The best part about Trick-Or-Treating last night?


It didn't rain!

You'd never know it from all the rain today, but we lucked out and had a really great night!



We had to wait for Will to get home from the airport before heading out into the neighborhood, so the kids set up a table, three chairs and the candy bucket...

and had a good time passing out candy and checking out all the kids in their fun costumes!


Ellison took her job very seriously, asking kids how they were doing and telling them how cute they looked...

It was pretty adorable!


The boys' costumes came with scary masks, but they were very kind and decided not to wear them while they passed out candy. That way they wouldn't scare any of the little kids.

Sweet boys!



BOO!



Ellison anxiously awaiting the arrival of more kids.



And then finally, Dad was home and it was their turn to go Trick-Or-Treating!

First, Grandma's house...

where they were spoiled with goody bags!

A few more stops...



and then back home...

to our Hot Dog...

Scout!


I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!

That being said, can you believe that it is November already?

Where has the year gone?

But I can't say that I'm entirely disappointed.

I hear turkey and cranberries calling my name.

What cute kids :) ...I am also very thankful it didn't rain here - I think my little chicken would have lost all his feathers.

Looks like a great night! I love your daughter's sweet costume and your two spooky boys :)
And I must say, I wish any of those door ways led to our house...what gorgeous homes between yours, the grandparents, and the other neighbors!

Our 1st Halloween since moving to Seattle - and we were SOOO happy that it didn't rain :) Love the porch and all the photos! Happy November!

It rained for us, but the one good thing about the rain? Less candy, but the munchkins didn't notice. They still think they got a ton, so it was a win/win =)

Looks like you all had a lot of fun. The kids all looked so cute. Even your dog! We hardly had any trick or treaters. Such a bummer. I have way too much leftover candy!

Mama Thompson said...

Lucky for you..we had rain here! Oh...and Ellison?...hello mini Karla :)

Becca said...

Oh, wasn't the rain today horrible!!! Here's the worst trick of all... the day after Halloween, kids have been up too late, eaten too much candy, and had indoor recess ALL day! It's an evil, evil trick to play on any kindergarten teacher.

Your kids look great and your little girl is absolutely adorable!

Your kiddos look adorable sitting there waiting for trick-or-treaters! Your porch looked awesome...and I love those bats at Grandma's house! Great photos!

Andrea said...

I was so excited that it didn't rain too, since Saturday was miserable {I live in Seattle} and so was today.

I see you go to a Metropolitan Market, my kids have the same bags:}

how cute, we don't really do halloween over here in Oz, oh well...

Smitten in the Mitten said...

Cute kids, and they are so polite too! All the little boys I know would jump at an opportunity to scare anyone.
