Continuing with the Frozen theme around the Daniels’ house, the girls decided they both wanted to be Olaf the snowman for Halloween. Both girls in the same costume means no fighting, right? Two Olaf’s it is! We celebrated Halloween during the afternoon by going trick-or-treating in downtown Elk River. It was chilly and we frequently had to stop and warm up a bit in one of the shops, but they had fun going into all the stores and picking out treats.
Later we got dressed up again and went out around the new neighborhood. Since moving into our new house in June, we had no idea what to expect when it came to trick-or-treaters. We had over 100 kids! The neighborhood seemed to come alive with kids everywhere in costumes; coming in vans and trailers hauling 10+ kids playing Halloween music, decorated with hay bundles and lights. It was so fun to see the girls reaction to all the commotion of the night and they were so excited that all the candy they got in their buckets was theirs and that they actually get to keep it and EAT IT! (I now have a form of bribery when it comes to eating their healthy food first, ha!)
