I wanted to quickly add a few photos from trick-or-treating. Halloween is such a kid holiday, in the fact that everything about costumes and trick-or-treating is geared to make kids happy.
This year we headed out the door as a family, but soon James caught up with his best buddy and before long they were running from house to house. Juliet couldn't keep up, and I didn't want her to only be told "hurry hurry hurry!" all night, so E and I decided to split up.
James and E went ahead with the big group of neighborhood kids, and Juliet and I took our time in the back. We really took our sweet time. Juliet had to say "hi!" to every pumpkin we passed. She had to fully inspect all decorations and sample many candies along the way.
James ran the entire time, sticking close to his best buddy. It was darling and so quintessential childhood. Halloween was perfect.
