Last night I took the girls trick-or-treating up and down the block. Cecilia dressed up as a bat; my lovely wife made her a set of bat wings, and I made her some ears. Naomi was a cat, which pretty much meant black sweats and a pair of store-bought cat ears and tail. Despite the fact that less than half the houses on our block had their porch lights on, the girls cleaned up in terms of candy, and Cecilia was very charming as she clambered up the various porch steps, knocked on the doors, and said "Trick or treating!" Eventually they got so loaded up that I stopped bringing Naomi up...there's no way she's going to eat that much candy, and if she did we'd have one wired toddler on our hands.
After the girls settled down for bed, we watched our new DVD of Halloween. All in all, it was a very pleasant and special holiday.
Here's the roundup of all this year's Halloween-related posts.
Update: SixDifferentWays pointed out some cool Halloween content at The History Channel.
