Halloween x 4

The girls went trick-or-treating last night dressed as characters from The Wizard of Oz. Emily was Glinda the Good Witch and Kendall was Dorothy. I even convinced Emily to ask people as they answered their doors, "Are you a good witch or a bad witch?"

Having also attended Fresh Air Family's Halloween-themed annual fundraiser, Trunk-or-Treat at our new church, and a Halloween party from Misty's mom's club, this was the fourth time the girls have gotten to dress up within the month. I'm glad they got so much mileage out of their costumes (though Emily wore something different each time).

A lot of the houses in our neighborhood were dark on Halloween night, and it surprised me to see several cars parked along the street where parents had driven kids in from other neighborhoods. Ours doesn't seem the most trick-or-treat-friendly subdivision. Nevertheless, the girls returned home with a massive haul of candy (much of which was confiscated overnight by the "Candy Witch").

More fun than candy or dressing up though, was before bed when Emily and Kendall went wild "styling" Mimi's hair.
