I think that last picture just about sums up how our Halloween 2009 left us by the end of the night; head down, dragging the treat bag behind us.
We partied it up big time yesterday afternoon (and into the night) with a group of friends who generously invited us to trick or treat in their neighborhood and back to their house for dinner, drinks and more good fun. We knew we had all worn out our welcome when every child was in tears from the sugar let down/pure exhaustion at 9 PM. But our little lion had a great time trick-or-treating for the first time (despite the chilly temperatures). And we thoroughly enjoyed having a few hours of hanging out (and saying goodbye to one very specially family) while the kids worked off the sugar consumed during the day.
Can't wait until next year, guys!
*I have a ton more pictures, but I'm trying to be cognizant of the fact that not everyone wants their kids plastered over the Internet.
