Finally, something that makes this whole parenthood schtick worthwhile - Halloween. The kids get to dress up and run rampant around the neighborhood, scoring whole candy bars from several houses and wearing themselves out before I, dutiful parent that I am, confiscate the loot. It's all over now, they are mercifully sleeping and we are
sampling thoroughly checking the candy for needles. I'm just sad that I won't be able to threaten them with not going trick or treating any more.
We took the boys trick or treating at a train museum in town and as I said before, they struck gold in our neighborhood. Another Halloween survived!
