Halloween was so fun this year! Last Thanksgiving we moved into the neighborhood we used to always hear about when it came to the best trick-or-treating spots. Our neighbors and their friends all told us what to expect this year but I think it may have surpassed my wildest expectations.
Brett and I went as Chuck and Ned from Pushing Daisies, one of our favorite tv shows that was sadly cancelled after two seasons. If you just clicked on that link to find out if I looked anything like some girl named Chuck, you need to head over here and start watching.
Sebastian was Luke Skywalker and sported a thrifted pair of too small pants, a woman's top that I cut up to make into a tunic, a stick wrapped in blue painter's tape, and a belt that I attached a handmade leather pouch and light saber holder to. The shoes? SO no Jedi.
Ruby went as Madeline from the children's storybooks. I knew she'd give me a hard time with much of a costume so we took advantage of the adorable vintage coat Janae gifted us and just got a little fancier than we usually get.
The weather was perfect, the trees were gorgeous, and the atmosphere was especially festive. We got to the parade line up just in time and spotted a few familiar faces underneath some creative costumes. After the parade we met up with our neighbors and friends and tried keeping up with Luke Skywalker. He wasted no time in between houses. That kid earned his suckers that night!
Sebastian ran into some friends from his preschool and we visited with families we hadn't seen since the Fourth of July parade in the same neighborhood. It was like living in Gilmore Girls. I will be so sad to not get to do this again next Halloween.
Sebastian taught Ruby how to trick-or-treat and everyone had a great time. When we were done we drove over to Elsie and Jeremy's house to trick-or-treat one last time and then hit up Panera so we wouldn't all slip into a sugar coma. Sebastian fell asleep before we even pulled into our driveway.
We left some goodies out on our front porch while we were gone. I was kind of surprised that there were any left at all when we got home. If you're going to fill half your bag with dum-dums, you might as well just finish it off. Ha!
It was a memorable evening. Best Halloween ever? Possibly.
