This was the first year we took the kids out trick-or-treating. It was a good chance to walk around our neighborhood for the first time and get to know some of our neighbors. We had to distract Joe a few times when we had to walk past houses that had too-scary sound effects and decorations. That's going to be harder to do as they get older, so we'll probably have to figure out a new plan. I think the kids had fun, especially when we got home and allowed them to eat 4 pieces of candy each. Fortunately the sugar highs didn't last too long and we were still able to get them to bed at a decent time.
