Tonight is Beggar’s Night in Des Moines, which means the kids get to trick-or-treat in the evening. The forecast said it would be in the mid-50s and sunny…it was in the low 40s, windy and spitting rain…not the most ideal weather. We made the best of it, and had a great time! Alex dressed up as a tank – and he kept the box on for two whole houses!
Early this week, Alex had Trunk-or-Treat at his school. People decorate the trunks of their cars and the kids get to trick-or-treat for each one. Every car has a theme, like the Wizard of Oz, Toy Story, and of course, this being Iowa – the Hawkeye Express! Alex wore part of his Halloween costume and went as an army guy.
