The big event is this week. the boys are still going back and forth on if they are going out but still seem to be looking forward to the candy. It's a Wednesday night, before fall back, so it should be full of fun. But, it is never a time to forget safety.

Some great tips from the Center For Disease Control and Prevention :

Alphabet letter A Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.
Alphabet letter F Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.
Alphabet letter E Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats you eat.
Alphabet letter H Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you.
Alphabet letter A Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent skin and eye irritation.
