Happy Halloween

Another Halloween has come and gone.  This year Samantha was Rapunzel and Nicholas was Tigger.  It was pretty chilly out this year, but layering helped.  Papa, Mimi and Daddy took both kids out while my mom and I stayed back to hand out candy to all the kids.  Samantha walked almost the entire time and Nicholas we strapped into the wagon and he was just as happy as could be being outside and looking around at everything.
Trick or treating is so nice here in Livonia.  Kids are always pleasant as are the parents.  Each kid always says "thank you" after you give them candy and they are happy with whatever you give them.  I even heard them talk about someone giving them a pencil & paper.  They thought it was so cool!
This year for me I was nervous.  Now that we know that Nicholas has a severe peanut/tree nut allergy, all the candy made me nervous becuase almost all of it either has peanuts in it or was processed in a nut facility.  Big sister Samantha was so cute.  She asked people if it had peanuts in it before she put it in Nicholas' bag and if it did she just put it in hers.  She's going to be a great big sister!
Trick or treating ended at just the right time.  It's starting raining pretty hard.  We came in changed had some chili and watched Charlie Brown Halloween!  Nicholas had already fallen asleep by then, but Samantha loved Charlie Brown so much! 
It was another great Halloween and I can't wait for next year!
