Trick or Treating was WAY better than we had expected. I have to admit, my expectations for Halloween in the Kingdom were low. With it being a strighct Muslim country I didn't think there would be much happening on camp. But I was very wrong. It was fantastic. In fact the camp is swarming hours before sunset with activities and the gates are packed with families coming to visit "friends" and partake of the festivities.
We lasted about an hour. It was a great hour. The boys had fun walking from house to house and filling up their bags. Saying "trick or treat" and "thank you." We left while they were still happy and not yet tired. Great timing.
Owen took a while to catch on that he only got 1 candy from each house while trick or treating. Instead he would stand there with his bag open waiting for people to give him more candy. Mike usually had to coax him away and onto the next house. Once he realized that he was racking up the candy he wouldn't let anyone touch his bag. He insisted that he walk and drag/hold his own bag.
Carter LOVED everything about Halloween. Mostly his costume! He woke up that morning at 6:30 and told me he was ready to get buzz on and go to school. Then I had to bribe him to take the costume off for a nap. He was a little hesitant about a few of the scary costumes walking around, but really liked it when people recognized him and called him Buzz.
Hope you had a SpOoKTacuLaR Halloween Too!
Hugs, The Dille's
