Here are the kids with mom inside our apartment. While we did see some kids out in costumes, no one seems to do real trick-or-treating here. I think they just go to friends' houses, and since none of our friends live close by, that really isn't an option. Instead we dressed the kids up and let them wear their costumes for a night out, and then came home to trick-or-treat in our apartment.
Ollie seemed to like Halloween because lots of people smiled at him, and Elora told him what a cute monkey he was. He was all smiles and giggles, even though he really didn't do much trick-or-treating... instead he got to sit on our bed playing with Elora's duck and teddy (two toys that are NEVER shared with him).
For trick-or-treating, I took the candy (provided by the missionaries, they like to bring us treats - very nice, because most candy here is really pricey and much nicer than the typical Halloween treats), and then I went in different rooms of the house and closed the door, so that Elora could knock and say, "trick-or-treat!". It is cute how kids are always wondering, why am I doing this? for the first couple doors, and then they realize they are getting candy and start getting really excited about it.
Here is the cute picture I took just after opening the door to welcome my little trick-or-treater!
