Optimus Prime and Bumble Bee (no, not the Autobot but the one that stings) had a blast of a time trick or treating with their friends, BuzzLight Year and Minnie Mouse on Halloween night.
The clouds worried us a little but the rain stayed away long enough for the kids to collect a gazillion candy. I sneakily gave away some to the other little goblins without their knowledge. They will never know given the loot they got. At least a dozen went straight into their tummies immediately after they got back home. They plonked themselves on the living room carpet, unloaded their treats, compared notes and merrily ate one after the other and would have continued if the grown-ups hadn’t intervened. Thanks to the sugar high, they stayed up till 1 am bringing the house down and almost pushing the neighbors to call 911.
Phew! What a night! Chaotic, fun but thoroughly memorable!
As we dragged our tired selves to bed in the wee hours of the morning, the kids still awake and alert, announced their costumes for next year’s Halloween party- D wants to be a pirate and A, a princess!
Let’s see how many times this decision changes until the next one comes along.
