|all the trick-or-treaters|
This event was very well organized. We all met in a central location (covered, since it was pouring down rain) and were divided into groups. For the younger kids, one parent went out with the kids while the other one stayed at the apartment to hand out candy to the kids. They handed out maps with locations of candy-giving KIS families and building codes, each group was given a different starting point and we were off.
|Here's our group: Back row l-r: Ruby, Grace, Mia|
Front frow l-r: Jesse, Alliana, August

|Apartments were decorated|
|Many of the buildings we were trick-or-treating at are connected through|
the underground parking garage, which was nice to keep us out of the rain.
|The Hopps went all out with decorations|
|So did the Trotter's. The sign outside the door|
instructed children that in order to get the candy they had to
wake the mummy (that's Tim under those bandages).
|At the Verenna-O'Connor's, the kids got to play "pin the face on the pumpkin"|
The event was fantastic. And the kids (for better or worse) got TONS of candy. Wednesday they'll have another Halloween party and parade at school.
