Carving pumkins, lighting them with a candle, planning the perfect costume that is warm enough to get the children through a cold, damp, fall evening ~ the Halloween tradition continues for us, but there doesn't seem to be as many children going door to door as I remember as a kid.
The streets are dark, but there are still lots of homes participating in this tradition. As a child, I didn't get the safety factor of wearing the glow sticks and flashlights ~ it was just fun! These days, as a mother, I am sure to have at least some kind of light-up or glowing object on each child running through the dark neighborhoods, collecting their bucket-full of bite-sized candy.
This year we even hit a senior center with a room full of grandma and grandpa's that were thrilled to see the bright little faces all dressed up.

Riley was busy trying to figure out what all these animals and crazy people were doing out walking the streets. He was more concerned with what we had already passed, looking behind us, rather than finding the next house with a light on for treats.
Taking a break for treats.
