The kids had an absolute blast during trick or treating this year. Ali went as a pixie, and Xavier was a dragon. The past couple years they’ve had fun of course, but they pretty much had to ride in the wagon in between houses and we couldn’t go for very long before they got tired. Well this year they got to walk almost the whole time, and did a great job saying “trick or treat” and “thank you.” We still brought the wagon for the ride home, and it’s a good thing too because we were out for nearly two full hours.
It’s fun watching people react so much differently to cute little kids than to bratty, not-so-cute older kids that just run up and run off. They begrudgingly give those kids one piece of candy. Not so with the dragon-pixie duo, we literally had to make people stop giving them stuff. This one old couple gave them each at least 10 pieces. I think the old couple would have given them all their candy and just gone inside for the night if we would have let them.
