We had a great time trick or treating last night in the Village. Obviously, NYC is the greatest place in the world to be during the evening hours, as it seems a huge group of people enjoy celebrating this day more than any other day of the year. And that is something to behold, indeed. We headed out about 6:30, and spent the next 2.5 hours walking the sidewalks, observing the craziness, and accumulating way too much candy. All three kids would go from shop to shop requesting treats, regardless of whether it was an ice cream parlor or a bodega or a bar. It was neat to see adult revelers smile at the site of cute kids out for a night on the town.
As for costumes, Emmett was Obi-Won Kenobi or Luke Skywalker (homemade costume, what can we say?), Avery was a princess, and Jude was a knight.
