Halloween was a MARATHON day for us.  I was at Audrey's school doing a Trunk or Treating by 10:45 a.m.  We went to lunch with our friends the Kurbecs and long time friend, Megan.  Nathan came home.  We had a great Mexican feast and headed out Trick or Treating.  

Shortly after the last picture Audrey was running to get in a picture and her nose hit the curb.  We aren't sure that her nose is broken.  But it is bruised and swollen.  Nathan met up with a friend and went out while the rest of us stayed together.  Around 7:30 Elysse tripped over curbing at a house we were Trick or Treating.  She scraped the skin off her thumb and decided to call it a night.  Ryan took her home.  I finished the street with everyone else and left to get Nathan.  Nathan had gone back out Trick or Treating with his friend so I waited at the friend's house.  We left a little after 8:00 p.m. and made it back home about 8:15 p.m.  Audrey was still out with the Kurbecs until almost 9:00.  It was a long an exhausting day.  The kids had fun despite all of the falls, bruises and scrapes.

Next year:  Trick or Treating from 6:00-7:30 on a school night.  
The jury is still out on years when Halloween lands on a Friday or Saturday, will assess as the time comes.

Anyone need any candy?

Great pictures. It sounds like it was a very long day for everyone.
