This was the first year that Hope went trick or treating and "got" it. In the past, it was more like just dragging her along with us. She wasn't a part of the experience. But this year, she proved to me that she understood what was going on. She said "Happy Halloween" and "trick or treat" several times throughout the night. Last year, she could not say either. So that alone was huge to us.
We headed out around 5:00. Julia dressed as a cat and Hope was Cinderella. Julia's friend joined us as well.
It was a fun night.
