I know my oldest in only 11, but Halloween is teetering on it’s last legs already.
When we ordered his kid’s sized Large costume this year, it came up to his shins. We had to reorder an adult Small, which of course he was drowning in and I had to velcro, fabric tape and safety pin considerably.
Still I was pleased all of his friends (most of whom are now taller than me) were still game for it.We started on the busiest street in our neighborhood. They block off the street and there are many houses giving out full sized candy bars. Once we got there, the older kids dispersed. They were in a competition to see who got the most full sized candy bars and they all had their own strategies, including multiple costumes.Then, we headed back to the house for mummy dogs and chili. The parents socialized very civilly with adult drinks and conversation. The kids socialized by hyping themselves up on candy and sugary drinks and running through the house like made playing some sort of chase/tag game.
Aaron and Sam also were kind enough to take turns giving out candy to other fellow trick-or-treaters.
All the kids went to bed late, dirty, and crashing from sugar. I’d say it was another successful Halloween.Pin It
