My neighborhood was having a block party that evening. Mr. Sullivan invited his girlfriend and most of her kids (Emily did not come; she was at a sleepover). Papa made me hang out with Jess and Ella. Ella is fun, but you know how Jess is. After the party we went trick-or-treating. Daddy let me keep half of my candy and gave me a quarter for each piece I did not keep. I made a couple of dollars.
The Sullivan's stopped by for some cider later. Ella had to show me her candy. Why does her sister have to be the opposite?
Papa told me to take them up to my room so the grown-ups could have adult time. I think that meant they were going to make their cider 'hard cider.'
Jess and Ella did not dress up, but wore Halloween outfits. Their dad always makes them coordinate for parties. I was a princess. All in all it was a fun night. Free candy is always delightful.
