My little ring tailed lemur:
We met up with her old preschool buddy (who is now in kindergarten) who lives up the street for trick or treating. Her friend Elana was Word Girl - which will only mean something to people with children who watch PBS. Trick or treating in the daytime is not exciting or nostalgic for me, so we head out after dinner and while it makes for terrible photos, it makes for the best memories for me. Our neighborhood is super old school on Halloween and the streets are filled with gaggles of kids with hoards of friendly parents tagging along behind. The Dads are all drinking out of thermoses and holding the leashes of dogs in costume, and the Moms are all yelling, "DID YOU SAY THANK YOU??!!" from the curb while the littles try to walk into people's houses and the friendly neighbors hand out candy and wave to the parents on the sidewalk.
The rain held off until the very end when it started dumping and I became the ultimate fair weather trick or treater. All in all though, it was another fun Halloween for the family.
Next year, Edie has decided that all three of us are going to dress up as zombies.
