The weekend before Halloween we went out to our neighbor's parents' house in Foristel for the Annual Mincher Fall Party. We had Mia and Lily with us that night too, so that made it extra fun. They wore their costumes and got to go for a hayride, paint pumpkins and trick or treat. Renee even dressed up as a witch, which was a little frightening to Charlie and her son Tyson at first.

That night we had a slumber party at our house (Ethan & Addi left after the movie):

Halloween night we did our typical routine: first met up with the neighbors for some photo ops and a little trick or treating. Then we headed over to Grandma and Grandpa Claytons' house to trick or treat with Mia and Lily, followed by cake for Grandma Clayton's birthday. We had a fun night despite the yucky, rainy weather. Jack was totally into the trick or treating, running as fast as he could from house to house. Charlie got into it too, but he was much slower than the big kids. We ended up going about 3 houses ahead so the big kids would get to the door about the same time as slow poke Charlie. Both of them loved receiving all the candy though and we are STILL eating it, one piece or less per day.
