We opted out of dressing up this Halloween as our kids really don't understand or care, and any candy collected would inevitably be eaten by us. But we did carve up a few jack-o-lanterns and go down to a friend's house in the city to help hand out candy. Carving pumpkins is such a great texture activity, and this year was even more fun with Andrew than last year! Miss Clara mostly just was cranky and wanted to go to bed. Ah well - next year will be even more fun, I'm sure!
