This year, we had Derek Jeter, Commander Cody, Belle and a mermaid.
They did an amazing job of hosting trick-or-treat at the Embassy. The entire first floor was transformed into a trick-or-treat walk, with each section decorating a portion of the way. I expected people to tape bats on their doors and call it a day, but no. There was a spooky section, a funny section - people went all out on the decorating, and even when I was in a part of the Embassy with which I'm familiar, I had trouble recognizing where I was. One section made a mini haunted house in their little portion of the hallway. Another section constructed a giant maze of moving boxes outside.
Next we went to the parking lot, where people decorated cars for trunk-or-treat. And after that, we went to the Embassy pool, where a pizza and pasta buffet was served.
Aidan said it was "the best Halloween ever."
We went home after dinner and did candy experiments with some of the loot. But there's still an awful lot to eat.
So Happy Halloween, everyone! But tell me this: how did it get to be November already?
Oh, and p.s.: Kyra's super-short bangs in the photo below? Yes, well. She did that herself, just a couple of days ago. Apparently, she didn't want her hair in her eyes. Nice.
