Door to door trick or treating

When it comes to candy, kids have a long memory and remarkable powers of persuasion. By the end of the day yesterday, Caroline and James had talked us into "just a little" trick or treating. Well prepped on our roles, each grownup hid behind a door in our flat and met the costumed crusaders with candy and Halloween chatter.

James seemed to find home style trick or treating just fine for him and paraded about with pirate hat, sword and hook as if he were out making the rounds in the States. Caroline was more circumspect. "It's better than all pretend," she said, as she counted out her candy, dividing it carefully with James, "but next year can we go outside too?"

What a good idea, I might think of instituting it in our house next year... ;~)

(Perhaps involving doggy treats and glasses of wine!)

We might have to try your variety tonight! (Perhaps without the doggy treats though ;-).

Have you been back to the neighborhood near the American school in the last few years? I applaud you getting back to blogging :) Keep them coming!

We haven't been back in a few years, but I know it is still going on. Maybe next year!

(Thanks about the blogging, I thought it might be fun for grey November.)

That's fun! By the way, her silver mask is too terrific. She makes a great cowgirl.

I adore these photos and the last! So wonderful to see the children enjoying themselves in your Czech version of Halloween, and to have you back blogging.
