They went to school in their costumes today because they went trick-or-treating at some of the big buildings downtown (as they do every year). Rowan had his face painted, so Lydia wanted hers painted too. We hadn't even left yet, and it was already beginning to smear.
Rowan finally decided (after much debate) to go as a lizard. Clarence painted his face, and he was set.
After work and school, we went to Emily's house where we met up with Ms. Laura for dinner and trick-or-treating.
Rowan was a sweet boy and let Lydia have his umbrella.
I couldn't take my camera with me for trick-or-treating because of the rain, but I did get a few videos before my phone memory filled. We had a great time. Rowan and Lydia both said trick-or-treat, and they both said thank-you when they got their candy. Boy did they get some candy too! :)
After we got back from trick-or-treating, we set up a candle-lit table by the street. Rowan wanted to attract some "customers" so he could give them candy. We had a few people come by, but the ambiance under our tree in the candle-light was lovely.
We put glow bracelets in the tree to try and attract attention.
The tree held our umbrellas nicely.
Rowan sat on this brick wall, and when some trick-or-treaters came by, he sat very still like a statue and scared them half to death when he finally moved.
