Pre-Halloween Tricks and Treats

Halloween is still a couple of days away, but I feel like we've been celebrating for a while now!  Maybe it's the fact that it's cold enough to snow today, and that doesn't usually happen until much later than October 29th.  Or, maybe it's because we've had so many fun opportunities to don our Halloween best---

On this past Monday, we attended a "Trunk-or-Treat" party with our MOMS club (as I've said before, they have these clubs in basically every town in America, so it's something to look in to, no matter where you live)!  It was a great time.  We had a whole parking lot full of cars with decorated trunks, and the kids basically "trick-or-treated" at each car.  Here's my little piggy gathering treats (or, running around the parking lot laughing and screaming)---

On Wednesday, we headed to the Trick-or-Treat event at Wakefield Farmer's Market with our friends Isobel and Laura.  It was very cute!  Each stand had a treat for the kids, including some candy, but also gourds (because we needed more, haha) and a giant peacock feather.  It was a little drizzly, but still a lot of fun and different.  Something to keep in mind for next year!

Well, the best part of trick-or-treating is putting your treat in your bag, or holding your treats.

There were so many fun outdoor activities scheduled around the area for today, but unfortunately, many were canceled because of rain/snow.  We still have a few more days of Halloween fun, though!
