Pumpkins and Cutie Pies

In typical Reid fashion, we were making dinner, putting on Robynn's costume, and carving pumpkins only minutes before our first trick-or-treater rang our doorbell.

Fortunately for us the cuties that rang were the very same friends Robynn was trick-or-treating with!

I'm sure I've said it before, but I'll say it again: we live in such a great community! Robynn started the evening with Ella and Lynn, but at the first house picked up her friends Sebastien and William, followed shortly thereafter by Sophie! We let all the parents tag along as well.

Fun was had by all! Even though the parents kept checking to see if correct manners were used. Ella's Daddy, Blair, didn't get a "Thank You" from Robynn, but said that "Wow, it's Mr. Blair!" worked for him! Isn't it neat to know so many of your neighbours!

Robynn hauled in a lot of loot, and our neighbour, Ali, gave me a great idea. She lets her boys choose a predetermined amount of their candy, then they have to hand the rest over in return for a toy. Russ and I made this proposal to Robynn and she was all for it! So, Robynn choose five pieces of candy and exchanged the rest for Disney's Pocahontas. Robynn has been waiting to see this movie for a very long time (to a four-year-old that is!).
