An American Tradition Continued

It may have been Halloween, but this weekend was anything but scary. The amount of joy it brought to our maiden Trick-or-Treater to become a pumpkin and run from house to house, hand-in-hand with her likewise newly-initiated little friends was immeasurable. I could feel that same excitement exuding from her that I first felt as far back as I can remember knowing that on this one night of the year, the disappearing sun would set into motion a fantastical children’s play in which every child held the starring role. Every time a door opened, it was your curtain call. Your chance to shine and then be rewarded for how clever, cute or purposefully creepy you were. And then, of course there was the fun of reveling in your spoils; so much so that you’d have a stomachache for weeks on end. And so it was, that an American tradition was set in motion for another generation this weekend.

Reagan insisted on posing with her cousin, Jack, before leaving the house:

She then wanted to visit the snowman we had built the day before,

only to find that Frosty had apparently lost his magical hat:

We checked out the mayhem at the Aurora Mall and stopped into Sears for a FREE Halloween toy:

Continuing with the FREE theme, it was time for dinner at Chipotle where even Reagan got in on the aluminum foil act:

Filling up before the long night ahead. Thank you, Chipotle!

Making their way down the mean streets of Aurora, Riley, Reagan and Sarah are dressed for success!

And always, hand-in-hand:

“Twick-or-Tweet!” Their line didn’t always get delivered on time, but the crowd still loved it!

Pretty soon, they had this Trick-or-Treating thing down and were racing from house to house:

And a good time was had by all:

A half-hatched role-reversal takes flight on a wing and a prayer.

Life is a misadventure mixed with mayhem.
