This was the kids first official Halloween back in the States, and to Lyndsey, this makes it their first official Halloween. We celebrated in Costa Rica, but it was quite a bit different, lacking one major thing that makes Halloween so exciting for kids in the States and that is trick or treating.
Eli got to go trick or treating when he was a baby, but he has no recollection as he was around Riley’s current age. So needless to say this was the kids first time trick or treating and they loved it. I mean, what is not to love about it. Start out the night at a party down the street, get a bunch of candy than head home and walk door to door to collect more candy. I can tell until Christmas, this will be their new favorite holiday.
Isabel wanted to be Bell from Beauty and the Beast, so I went ahead and dressed up as the beast, at least for the first part of the night I did.
Lyndsey decided to go with the Pokemon theme for her and Eli’s costumes. Eli wanted to be Ash, one of the main characters in Pokemon, so Lyndsey went as a girl from team rocket, another character in the series. Riley was suppose to be the Pokemon Pikachu, however she broke out in a rash that day and didn’t want to wear a costume.
