For a 2nd year in a row, we joined the majority of our son's classmates for an evening of trick or treating. I'm not sure who enjoys it more - the parents or the kids. We typically start off at the neighbors for dinner and then we all make our way to the trick or treat destination.
Not only do the kids get oodles and oodles of candy, but there are drinks provided to the parents along the way. My favorite is the steaming hot toddy with mulled cider coming in as a close 2nd. For 2 years in a row our son has arrived at the same time as one of his buddies and they ended up going door to door again this year. It's nice to see him chatting it up with his friend as they make sure they don't miss any houses.
We had a great evening and were very thankful that it didn't rain. Here is the kid's haul - he ended up sorting it all out by type - which was pretty funny. I'm still hoping we can convince him to sell his candy to the dentist - us parents can't handle the temptation of all this candy!
