And Last, But Not Least ...

Henri's first official trick-or-treating experience. He's usually in bed by 6:00, so we got him all good and wound up so he'd stay awake just a little longer. This was our first Halloween in the new house, and I'm very happy to report that the neighborhood is loaded with kids-- real kids, not the sullen teenagers wearing baseball jerseys that we used to get at the old house. We went around to about ten houses and met some of the neighbors; everyone was so nice. And as you can see, they have great taste in candy. There were Reese's, 3 Musketeers, Almond Joys, Butterfingers, Nestle Crunch, Kit Kats, Runts, Saf-T-Pops and even Teddy Grahams. Hooray! And now, as I write this, Henri has been walking around and around the house for the past half hour with Smarties in one fist, a Tootsie Roll in the other. That's my boy!
