Yesterday we excitedly dressed up the kids to go trick-or-treating at the Skidmore College Campus. Students in the apartment housing were giving out candy to hundreds of children affiliated with the school.
And what kid doesn't love an extra chance to dress up and trick-or-treat?? And what parent doesn't love to see their kids dressing up, having a great time and getting lots and lots of candy that they beg to eat as soon as the sun comes up every day for the next three weeks? Well, maybe that last part isn't my favorite. And I have a child that somehow memorizes the number and type of candy received so that I can't even
steal pieces when she's not looking share. All worth it for how excited she was. LittleL.G. wasn't excited at all, likely because she had to wear a ridiculous dalmation hat, but she was a trooper- stayed in her truck the whole time, waved at people, and happily munched peanut butter crackers.
It was a great evening. To be honest, I'm not sure actual trick-or-treating on Halloween can top this. At least MiniM.E. is excited to try!
