Halloween'd Out!

It kind of bugs me when people wish away great events in life just because of the effort it takes to bring them to pass...however, I have to admit that I'm a little bit glad that Halloween is over! I'm sure the feeling is mutual concerning our blog as you look at the third Halloween posting in a row :)

We threw our second annual Halloween party on the 25th and it was a smashing success. Last years party came to fruition out of our desire to throw the ward Halloween party that was not happening any other way. The irresistible desire to throw parties and other social gatherings runs in my blood as anyone who knows my mom can attest (love you Mom!) and Cameron is the same way. It went well but was so much work that Cameron and I hardly had time to enjoy it. We learned our lesson and simplified things this year.
Plus, we had it at our friends' building where they can reserved the party room, conference room, billiard room and theater, so it was nice to have some extra space.

On Halloween in NYC, they close down certain streets for trick-or-treating and that is where most people go. We went to one lined with decorated brownstones and it was packed! Not that we expected any less :). One fun addition this year, was that someone beamed the Bat sign onto their brownstone and then had superheroes including Batman and Spiderman repelling and climbing all over the building. Hudson was riveted. We spent about a half hour making our way down the street, then picked up some pizza (our Halloween tradition) and Magnolia bakery treats, then called it a night!

Pictures from our party and trick-or-treating are in our October album.
