Halloween, 2020

Story told by: Brody

We weren’t sure what Halloween was going to look like this year, but I’ve got to tell you…it ended up being awesome!!

We decided on doing an animal theme, so we each got to pick out exactly which animal we wanted!
I was a hamster, Henry a chameleon, and Lainey a fox.
The tails were one of our favorite parts!
Mommy also had a fun shirt to wear!
Our first stop of the day was the O’Loughlin’s house for outside Halloween games.
I couldn’t stop giggling at Chloe’s costume.
Mommy and her friends all had matching shirts!
These are their faces when they have to count past three.
And this is how they feel inside.
The dads!
Mrs. O’Loughlin was amazing and had goodie bags for all of us once we finished the games!
We ended with a yummy lunch!
Thank you so much to the O’Loughlins for a fantastic afternoon party!
We took a break for a few hours, and then walked to the Knight’s house for a fun escape room. On the way there, we stopped at just a few houses that allowed for socially-distanced trick-or-treating. This is a fun video from our neighbor’s, Scott and Betsy!
Another neighbor’s house, the Conleys!
Henry’s teacher, Mrs. Nelson, lives close to us and gave out her address to her class so they could stop by. So special!
While walking I told Mom, “I’m just like a hamster. Short legs, but also very fast.”
People were SO creative with how they handed out candy this year!
After trick-or-treating at ten houses, we had full buckets and ended at the Knight’s house for a fun escape room!
The escape room they made was amazing!!
We had to solve clues in order to unlock all of the locks!
Once we figured out the clues, we were lead to the final big prize of tons of candy!
Sorting through all of our candy! Thank you to the Knights for a great party!
The final stop of the night was our house for a haunted flashlight egg hunt!
Emptying all of the candy out of the eggs once they’d been found!
After the egg hunt was done, us kids went downstairs to eat snacks and watch “Hocus Pocus” while the adults stayed upstairs to play a Halloween edition of Family Fued.
After six grueling rounds, these three were declared the winners!
The next morning we enjoyed our usual pancakes with Halloween candy!
And then sorted through all of the candy from the night before! It was a pretty great Halloween, and we didn’t care one bit that it was different this year!
