First Halloween in Indiana

The kids were really ready for Halloween this year and gave a fair amount of consideration to their costumes. Emma was a devil, Grayson was Anakin Skywalker (not to be confused with Luke), and Claire was originally the Island Princess but found the Lion costume to be more fitting for the cold weather.

Trick or Treating Hoosier-style had two distinct benefits we noted right away.

1. Tons of kids in the neigborhood. Next year, one of us has to stay home to hand out candy so we can see all of them.

2. One of our neighbors (all costumed out) grilled out hotdogs destined for the grownups and another one had an open cooler full of adult beverages. Hoosiers know how to do this thing!
