We made caramel apples together:
With the dipped apples, cooling on the serving platter.
I made jack-o-lantern quesadillas with jack cheese as one component of our dinner.
Katie finds another happy pumpkin and offers him her candy.
My sweet little trick-or-treater!
While Katie was napping, I made a surprise for her at our dining room table. I dressed our pink bunny in fairy wings and our bear in a renaissance hat. The bunny is holding a fork, and each of them have one of Katie's sippy cups and candy to eat...
Snow White selects a candy from Amie and Boppa's neighbors. It was so awesome to be trick-or-treating in my own neighborhood. One neighbor that I have known since moving here had lined her driveway with pumpkins and had a small bonfire going. Lots of houses around here really celebrate---it's awesome!
After trick-or-treating for quite awhile, we came home and had caramel apples and warm mulled apple cider (I use the Williams-Sonoma mulling spices, the best I have found---just the right amount of pungency). We ate a little more candy (after checking each piece thoroughly for safety), and had baths and cuddled. After reading, we turned off all the lights and Katie fell asleep looking at her glowing carved pumpkins. I told her how once, two years ago, I brought her home on Halloween---and that Halloween will forever be special to me because of that reason.
