Trick or Treat 2009

Could it be that all those trick-or-treaters wearing sheets are dressing up as mattresses? I don't know, but I do know that our kids had a really fun time collecting all their candy loot! It was a lot of fun watching the kids race up to the door to see who got their first. But as soon as the bags started getting heavier, the fun soon slipped away. Enter mom and dad!
One thing that really gave us a laugh was Brooklyn's questions at every door. She had the most random questions that really made us wonder where they were coming from. At one particular door, a sweet old lady came driving up to her door in an electric wheel chair. AFTER she got her candy, Brooklyn asked the nice lady "Why are you riding in that chair? Don't your feet work?" At another house she kept asking the nice lady why she didn't have bags. We didn't quite get that one. Oh, and she has this thing for dogs. Any house that had a dog, Brooklyn was more interested in the dog than the candy. She would run up to pet the dog and shove her hands in its face. I keep telling her to stop doing so, but she won't listen. One of these times she is going to get nipped by a dog!
Anyhow, the kids had a lot of fun and the evening went well. Here are a few photos from Halloween night 2009
