We had three very excited children. One wore a race car driver costume, another a red Jungle Fury Power Ranger costume, and the third wore a Disney Princess Mulan costume, complete with a headdress and light-up princess slippers. Although big brother was an old pro at Halloween etiquette, the twins have been practicing their "Trick or Treats" for days now.
Many people left large baskets or bowls of candy on their porches so that they could accompany their children out for Halloween festivities. Now why didn't I think of that?
I think our choices of costumes were almost perfect. All three children wore fitted pajamas under their costumes for extra warmth. Our little racer car driver turned out to have reflective stripes, which really made him easily visible. I do not think our little Mulan was warm enough and, although her shoes were darling, they had a very low heel that our 3-1/2 year old was not use to walking in.
The twins' little legs had no chance of keeping up with the big kids, so we ended up walking with them separately.
After an hour of walking, both big brother and the twins were ready to go home. Of course, once we were home, they got their second wind. All in all, it was a great Halloween and I think we created some very happy memories for the children.
