Trick or Treaters

Halloween is very soon. Many schools have parades or class parties so that everyone can share the fun of wearing costumes. Miriam and Alice had really great costumes last year. They went trick or treating and had parties in school. Now they are planning their costumes for this Halloween. Mario is going to be a Power Ranger. Other children have lots of ideas for their costumes too.
On Halloween night, hundreds of children dressed in costumes come to our door for treats. I took photos of some last year. Some are only babies. Some are so grown up that they are much taller than I am. When all the candy is gone, I turn off the light, bring the pumpkins inside, and stop inviting them to ring the bell. From six to eight in the evening the street is full of yells and laughing as groups of children go from door to door.

Andrew was just a little baby, but he was dressed up as a lobster.

And here's a little tiny kid that was a pumpkin.
I really liked the kids dressed as catsup and mustard.
