We both really like Halloween a lot–and appreciate that our friends and neighbors do, too. As Dan was out hanging plastic bats, cotton cob webs, and delighfully spooky spiders, out neighbors were out, too. Not that it was a competition (but not that it WASN’T a competion either. ), but it’s really nice to see everyone out putting up decorations for trick or treaters. The neighborhood was the most festive we’ve seen it in the three years we’ve live on our block.
Our favorite Halloween tradition is having a bunch of friends and family over on Halloween night to greet trick or treaters together. A few people dressed up (and one dog–Berkeley dressed as a goat, which was perfect for her scruff GoldenDoodle facial hair) and we took turns giving out candy to neighborhood kids. Chris makes grilled cheese and tomato soup every year and in between door knocks, we watch “scary” movies (I’m not really sure you can count Hocus Pocus as a “scary movie” but it’s close. Holidays like this are one thing we are VERY excited to share with a little one. Dan has very fond memories of carving pumpkins with his dad and roasting pumpkin seeds. His mom would often sew hsi costumes (his favorite is still the blue Care Bear that his mom made. He liked it so much, he wore it two years in a row).
Halloween has become a very fun tradition in our home and we are so excited to grow our traditions to include trick or treating as a family and sending pictures to our little one’s many uncles, aunts, and grandparents. So much to look forward to!
