Clare's First Halloween

This was Clare's first Halloween. We went to China on November 7, 2008, so she missed Halloween last year. She really didn't understand what was happening, but she had a good time. We started down the street from our home and went to about ten houses and Clare said she'd had enough and was ready to go home -- so we did. She had her little bucket of candy and that was that. We took our tub of candy across the street to the Ventresca's and doled out the candy from their house. It was a beautiful evening, so they opened the garage door and we all sat in the driveway and handed out the treats to all the little goblins, Spidermen, and Dorothy (I don't think we're in Kansas anymore). What was interesting was that Clare had a wonderful time organizing all her candy into lines and rows. She had more fun doing that than eating the candy.

All "dolled-up" and ready for action.

Looks like one of the neighbors has lost some weight.

No Clare, the bucket is for candy.

Aha, so this is how it works.
