It's too cold to eat candy!

It was definitely a cold night tonight as Sean, Amy, Rebecca and Michael traipsed around the neighborhood looking for treats.

They were only gone about an hour before they came running back in the house nearly crying from the cold. Rebecca’s cheeks were completely red from wind burn. Michael couldn’t get his hands warm; neither could Sean. Amy was cold but not nearly as bothered by the temperature as the others were.

Everyone up here says you should design your Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit. They are not kidding! I tried to get Rebecca to wear her snow jacket under her Little Red Riding Hood cape but she would have none of it. And Michael only wore a windbreaker because he said his warm jacket messed with his costume. (Got news for you, Michael-man: the hair and glasses said it all!)

They hauled in a ton of candy. Michael’s will last until Easter; Amy’s and Rebecca’s will be gone by the weekend. I just want to make sure they hide it all from me!
