I don’t remember Halloween ever being on a Monday, but it was today. I really thought they’d have Trick or Treat over the weekend, but most local towns decided to keep it on the 31st. It worked out well for our family as both Meg and Cam had friends over to walk the neighborhood. Meg invited Preston and Gabrielle and Chance and Evan joined Cam.
Both Meg and Cam decided to make their own costumes tonight. Meg was a basketball hoop wearing her IU net hat. Preston was the baller wearing Meg’s IU jersey and Cam’s IU crazy hat. Gabby completed the trio by being the the overzealous fan complete with IU striped pants borrowed from Meg.
Cam and his friends looked great as well. Cam went as a detective complete with trench coat, magnifying glass, detective hat and pipe. Evan was a wizard from Harry Potter and Chance was the Operation Man from the board game. Doug walked with them, but said they will be fine to go on their own next year. The boys were thrilled that they were also able to play Pokemon Go at the same time.
We received a picture from Cal in his Halloween costume. He enjoyed the weekend as Cheech Marin from Cheech and Chong. His outfit was complete with suspenders, a mustache, cigar and yellow crop top. I got a kick out seeing it.
Mom, Dad and I stayed at our house handing out candy. We really didn’t have as many trick or treaters as I expected. Sounds like other neighborhoods were packed, however. Once the older three returned they asked Mom to take them to Dairy Queen for free cones. Preston and the ice cream cone paper were the topic for the rest of the night.
