We compromised with Kara this year--it's hard to convince her that there are other cute costumes besides princesses (which she was last year). Tinkerbell turned out great! Since Halloween was on a Friday this year we also had a party with friends. We headed into Taylorsville to trick-or-treat in the good old 20th Ward. After trick-or-treating we went to the Larson's for pulled pork sandwiches and lots and lots of talking and laughing.
Here's Parker in his grim reaper costume. Again, we had to compromise since Shaye was adamant that a clown or any facsimile of a clown was out of the question.
The kids were fun to watch while we went trick-or-treating. It didn't take long for Kara to lead the way to the next house, leaving Parker in the dust. Every time we left a house Parker wished the person a happy halloween and soon Kara joined in. When Kara's bag became too heavy a burden Parker helped her carry it and then Dad had to take over. She kept saying she wanted more candy, but finally gave in and said she was done. They played for another few hours at the Larson's though, with no trouble keeping up with the other kids. A really fun night with fun friends!
