We had a fantastic night full of candy and horror. The night started with a hurried exodus out of our house over to Oma and Zaydee's where we ate pizza and got ready (while my poor dad missed it all because he was stuck in Casablanca--alas, the show must go on).
We got into our costumes and hurried out the door. This year was such a change. Sam loved trick-or-treating and probably could have gone all night. She was so pumped to walk outside, see the other kids, get candy and get fawned over at each house.
Once we finished with that, we hurried off to our horror movie marathon featuring The Shining, It's Alive and Halloween. It was a blast and, of course, we won the trivia contest because that's how we roll (the winning question--"what was the girl's name from the Ring?" 10 points to whoever guesses correctly). Being out without kids was pretty incredible, especially on Halloween night and both kids were well behaved (read: sleeping) so we were quite pleased.
