One of our neighbors does a hayride around the neighborhood for trick-or-treating. We invited Stephen over to trick-or-treat with us, but we weren't quite ready when the hay wagon came by, so Don drove me and the kids around the block to catch up with the hayride after we were dressed. Scott did a great mummy make-up job on Mary. Audrey kept going back and forth on what she wanted to be - a princess or fairy, and what color princess or fairy. We bought a Snow White costume, but in the end she decided to wear her cape from last year and be a cherry fairy. Stephen had trouble with his ghost costume, so he ditched the sheet after a few houses. At the first house we went to, the man answered the door wearing a monkey mask that looked like it might be from an Asian puppet show. The mouth even moved when he talked. Audrey wouldn't go near him, and talked about the monkey man for days afterwards. After trick-or-treating, a bunch of the neighbors got together at someone's house for hot dogs and hamburgers and other treats. It was a fun Halloween!
