I love making our own costumes and doing a family theme. The costumes you buy at the store are way over priced and extremely low quality, not to mention that you will probably see 5 other kids with the same costume on. That is why I like to make our own costumes when we can. I'm not sure how that will work when the kids are more set on picking their own costume but we will see.
Trunk-or-treat got moved to inside to to the rain. It was very crowded in the church hallways and very difficult to maneuver Scarlett through the herd without picking her up. Not my favorite part of the day, but the kids liked it and that was the point.
I didn't realize that kids will actually throw up if they eat too much candy. I now know that is not just a myth. Once we got home we let the kids eat as much candy as they wanted for about 10 minutes before bed. Penelope started throwing up. Luckily she happened to be in the bathroom and puked into the toilet. Scarlett kept eating candy with the wrappers on. I couldn't open it fast enough for her.
The worst part of the day was probably when older teenagers came to the door and started using inappropriate language to Tucker, who was trying to give them candy. They weren't calling him mean names but I didn't like what they said and shut the door on them. Luckily it was over Tucker's head and he missed it completely.
By the way, I don't think we are going to save Mr. and Mrs. Pac-Man so if anyone local wants them just let me know and they are yours!
