Edie dictated all costumes this year. She's never cared one way or the other whether we dress up, but this year she was VERY passionate about the idea and I figured, how many years will she WANT us to be involved. Even Jeff went in and borrowed a cape and let me buy him a "vampire medallion" for his Dracula costume. Edie was his baby bat and made him practice (and me photograph) this scene multiple times:

 In the afternoon we headed to Fairhaven where all the shops give out candy. While this was worth the visit, I'm not going to lie - it was raining and windy and kind of soggy. We agreed it was worth another try next year, but the highlight this time around was seeing a giant Batman.

Then we had friends over for dinner before heading out for trick or treating in the neighborhood:
Edie and Senna (Cari's daughter) who was a vampire:
Gratuitous shot of my bride of frankenstein hair/makeup:
We met up with more friends from school out and about, visited a few houses with her cousin Luna and generally had a really fun time. Thankfully the rain held off in the evening. Sorting her stash that night before bed:
