Trick or Treating with Friends

We invited the families in our small group to come to our house for trick or treating on Halloween. These are some of Kate's closest friends, so she was super excited to have them all over. She kept asking me all day, "Are my friends here yet?"

Adelaide the Monkey and Cinderella Kate . . . so excited!!

We also had another princess, a cowboy, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, a fairy, and a pirate in our group of trick or treaters.

Thank goodness it was daylight savings time on Saturday night, because it made for great timing to keep the kids up a little extra later than usual. After rounding up candy from the neighbors, we returned to our house to put all the kiddos down for bed. The parents spent the rest of the evening hanging out in our backyard roasting smores by a (borrowed) firepit, enjoying the cool weather and good conversation.
