Halloween Night

Trick or Treating is huge in Waterford. No one trick or treats in their own neighborhood. Everyone goes to the little historic village of Waterford. The school collects candy and gives it to the homes in the village. This year, my parents joined us as well as Brayden's nurse Christina...and Gander, our dog, came too! Carter and Luke were skeletons and Brayden was the cutest pumpkin ever.


The school also decorates houses each year with a theme. Each grade responsible for a house. This trick or treating is far beyond the imagination. House decorated with life size replications.
This year, Books made into Movies:

K - Horton Hears a Who
Luke grade and they recorded the kids saying "We are Here!" It was playing along with the music. And the little faces of the kindergartners.

1st - Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

2nd - Stuart Little
Carter's grade, the students helped decorate and made sailboats (this is Carter's)

3rd - How to Train Your Dragon
Carter and Luke's favorite

4th - Diary of a Wimpy Kid
5th - Percy Jackson Lightning Thief

Not to mention other houses that were decorated for Harry Potter, a Drive in Movie playing kids Halloween Movies, smoke machines, bubble machines, it goes on and on.

The boys decorated pumpkins that were used to decorate the Corner Store in Waterford (Luke would not go close to his pumpkin because there was a scary guy there who looked to be fake but would jump up and scare people).

The hit of the night was Brayden with his pumpkin lights. We have never had so many people comment before.
