trick or treat

After missing out on most of the Halloween activities last year, we were excited to get back in the spirit this year! Mae chose to be a witch (no, I did not make the costume) and Colin is her spooky-cute black cat (yes, I made the hat and tail). They had lots of opportunities to wear their costumes this weekend: Mae's school parade, trunk-or-treat at my office, our street parade, Kathy and Jason's party, and trick-or-treating tonight!
We had fun carving our pumpkin on Sunday. Dan cleaned out the goop (with a little help from Colin... and even less from Mae. Too yucky!) Mae designed the face and drew it on the pumpkin. I carved. It was a real team effort!
This was our first year attending a "trunk-or-treat." I was very impressed with all the creative trunk decorations! We brought our skeletons to help us hand out candy, and Dan and I wore our skeleton costumes.
Colin was surprisingly patient having his cat makeup done, and declared himself "beautiful" every time.
Mae mostly trick-or-treated by herself this year. Colin and I just couldn't keep up! She filled her little bucket and then came home to enjoy the treats before heading back out again to meet up with friends. So grown up!
Happy Halloween!
