It was so flipping COLD for Halloween this year. I've been a total humbug all week because I was bracing myself for meltdowns and sugar highs and two girls staying up way past their bedtime. But it turned out to be a really great night! We had a real dinner with real vegetables and Sylvia ate a TON, so I knew we were off to a good start. Then she changed into her WARM clothes (two layers of underthings, warm fluffy coat, princess dress). Margot woke up from her evening cat nap just in time to squeeze into her mouse outfit before Sylvia and Sylvain hit the pavement. Which means I got a picture of them both! At this point I felt like a total success. The rest of the evening was smooth sailing. Here it is in photos!

|House Number One - check. The girl's smiling despite the cold and the RAIN!|
|Pony up, ladies!|
|Sprinting to the next house.|
|"Aaaand, I'm done. Daddy, carry me."|
|Home by 6:30, stash sorted by 6:35.|

It was a good night and I'm glad it's over. Tomorrow is pajama day at school, so....I won't be doing a whole lotta work! Now I just hope Margot sleeps well tonight and Sylvia doesn't wake up with a cold. Happy Halloween!!
