    I hope if you are taking your little one out for Tricks or Treats this weekend that you'll come back and share some pics with us.
    I really would love to see them!

    Are you making costumes or buying? Any creative ideas to share?
    How do you Trick or Treat with a little one? To Mom's house and in-laws? Out for lunch or din? Hubby's office? Your office?

    I bought a pirate costume for DD to wear.. I'm putting a white turtleneck and black leggings and her little black fur boots on as well to keep her warmer.
    We'll be heading to the "Treat Trail" (all the downtown businesses here buy a bunch of candy and dress up for all the kids) tomorrow, and then on Sunday we'll be heading to our neighbours houses, my in-laws, and a few friends that will want to see her as well. Just a couple places as I don't want to have a TON of candy.. I'll be the one eating it all! LOL

    Oh I know that feeling, I also know how it is to buy Halloween candy to soon!! LOL

    That costume sounds so cute! And what a good idea for trick or treating, a "treat trail". Sounds fun!
    My sister lives near in Pa. and they Trick or Treat out of the neighbors trunks and minivans, they all go to a park or a lot or something. Such a good idea too!

    The costume for DS was handmade by a friend and is a dragon/dinosaur. We haven't figured out what to dress up as for the party that we are going to.

    We are trick or treating at friend's homes only, like maybe 6 total.

    Our families are 10 hours and 22 hours away, so no, not to the grandparents homes!

    We are going to a party in the evening that one of my DH's coworkers is throwing for a bit that will have finger food so we will eat dinner at the normal time at home. No plans for lunch yet. We just got back from a week long vacation, so honestly eating out does not sound all that appealing.

    Since it's the weekend we won't go to either office. My employer is having a community party tonight, but I don't think we will drive back out for it since DH will be working late and it is geared for older kids.

    DS is going to be a dragon. We bought it at a Halloween store. I will make something quick for dinner. Our trick or treating starts at 6:30 so we will go down a couple streets in town and then we'll start our journey to the other family's houses. They live about 20 miles away and all are scattered throughout the countryside.
