Trick Or Treat Houston
It's our first time to really go house to house for the Halloween trick or treat. The kids have long been looking forward to this since the start of October. So, even if we already felt the autumn cold wind... we pushed through with our plan. First, we drove downtown and went to the Children's Museum (I thought it was a free event, oh well (LOL!!!)). The kids enjoyed the place since there were a lot of activities and learning stuffs prepared just for them. The kids still wanted to stay longer but we had to move on with our main plan... Trick or Treating...
Being new to Houston, we had a hard time finding a place for the event. But as we were about to call it a night, we found this village where people really go and accompany their children for the Trick or Treat (lucky us... thank you Lord). Then the long walk begun. It was a merry event... the homeowners (of really nice houses... whew) were prepared. My kids collected two bucketful of chocolates and candies... and you could really see how delighted they were, that they didn't even had the time to mind the distance we walked.
There were still a lot of houses we had not been through and I know they still wanted to go on... unfortunately, we still had one more stop. We needed to buy stuffs for the birthday celebration of our youngest (which will be on the following day, the 1st of November).
When we got home, we were all tired but fulfilled. After a short late dinner and kids sorting all the candies they collected (and given to mom for safekeeping and control)... It was I think the first time that we didn't even ask the kids to go to bed (that's how tired they were). A great way to end Halloween with a smile. Yahweh bless.
