The weather forecast on Halloween was to be rainy, but thankfully we woke up to a nice sunny afternoon. It was windy and chilly, but no rain! We had planned to meet up with several other families that have children around the same age as Matthew and go trick-or-treating together. The kids all looked so adorable in their costumes. And, it was even more precious to see the kids get excited about each other's costumes! We met at 6pm, once it had gotten dark, and set off in one of the neighborhoods on base. Here are pictures of the kids waiting in the parking lot to go trick-or-treating.
Overall, it was so fun to watch Matthew walk up to each door and say, "trick-or-treat" in his sweet little voice. And, then he would always politely say, "thank you" after a piece of candy dropped into his bag. By about 7:30pm, the excitement caught up with Matthew and he asked if we could go home. This is definitely turing out to be a big year of memories with Matthew now that he's almost 3 years old!
Happy Halloween 2011!!
