Costumes this year were important because they have a big parade at the girls' school. I didn't realize how big a deal this was but I'm glad I made the choice to stay and watch it. All the kids take turns walking around the whole school to show off their costumes for each other and swarms of picture taking parents.
It was really cute to see everyone dressed up. There were some very creative costumes. The kids loved watching the parade. I adore this picture of Ava getting excited to see Erin as her class walks by.
Teachers and parents got in on the action too.
We ended the day trick-or-treating in our new neighborhood. It was a nice way to introduce ourselves to a few more people on our block. When the girls filled their baskets we headed home and crashed. Halloween is fun but it makes for a really long day.
