Halloween started with a parade at school with Dan as an Area 51 alien and Elizabeth as a bat. Both had parties at school, but when they got home, both had homework since the next day was a school day. But after the homework and dinner (we tried for pizza but I guess everyone does pizza on Halloween because the wait was more than an hour, so we settled for sandwiches from Subway), we went trick or treating. Once around the block then back home to hand out treats to other kids. In order not to have them eat the 100 lbs of candy they got, we convinced them to trade their candy for a toy.
