We braved a chilly night on Monday to take our daughter out trick-or-treating for Halloween.  I was surprised by the number of kids out in our area considering we just moved to a brand new neighborhood.  It was great to meet a few more of our neighbors and to see all the kids dressed up and having fun.  In the end we only made it to about 15 houses but her bag of candy was stuffed to the max.  It’s amazing the amount of candy people will give out to a cute two-year old.
