A few days before our trip to Ohio, Abigail came down with the flu. She was feeling a little better by the time we arrived, but not well enough to venture out into the night for Trick-or-Treating.
The plan for all of the kids on Halloween was to head over to Joe and Jody’s since their streets are well lit, and the houses are close together. However, with Abigail still fighting the flu she wasn’t going to be able to join the rest of the kids. As you can imagine, not being able to dress up in her Hermonie (from Harry Potter) costume was a bit difficult to take.
Mike came up with the brilliant idea to keep some candy in the house so that Abigail could still dress up, and Trick-or-Treat through the inside of the house with him. When Barbie and I heard about this we asked if we could stay behind as well to help with the candy distribution.
Mike, Barbie and I split up a huge bag of candy and ran to different rooms of the house. Abigail then proceeded to knock on each closed door in the house as we pretended to be different people who were answering their front doors.
We pretended to be shy people, creepy people, anti-social people, goofy people, and even a non-English speaking person. Each person, of course had candy for Trick-or-Treaters.
I am not sure who had more fun – Abigail, or the adults. I think that is an indication of how well the activity turned out.
