This year, we stuck with our tried and true Halloween routine: we met up with our neighborhood friends at Cobble Hill Park for the kiddie parade and took a good look at the fantastic costumes that our Halloween-crazy neighborhood produces (how cool are those jellyfish costumes made from clear umbrellas and bubble wrap?). After the parade, the crowd slowly moved to Garden Place, the most perfect – and crowded – street for trick or treating. The kids were psyched, and Mika collected more candy than ever. By the end of our tour, Tobin had fallen asleep and Mika held on by sheer willpower (and sugar?) – she had a sleepover last night and started the day with a substantial sleep deficit…

Both kids ate a lot of candy, but happily surrendered the rest to the Switch Witch, who will visit tonight and switch each kid’s candy for a little toy. The tricks you learn from other parents…

    Holy Digger Costume! Mika’s face is fantastic. Is she the switch witch? If so I have some laffy-taffy and gobstoppers for her :))) — Harold had ((cough, cough))some help ((cough)) with the rest….

    Cynthia – i am glad Mika is not reading our blog. Being the switch witch would be ingenious: switching the candy AND keeping it!
