A Care Bear kept us snuggly and warm while Dobby, the house elf, watched over every move. This was the girls first Halloween experience and they had a blast. Mom cooked up great costumes - great because they both hopped in with barely a complaint - that just seemed to suit each perfectly.
Meet Xian, the Care Bear. She's snuggly and warm.
Halloween was an opportunity to flash down her rainbow in a show of independence. She quickly figured out the routine: find a mob of people, climb the stairs to be with them, patiently wait, hold out bag, score something in a wrapper, say thank you, walk back down the stairs and repeat. There was little hand-holding as she took off on her own!

Then there is the friendly house-elf, Dobby, um Sage.

All in all, it was a fun night. Our community had quite a few people that participated in Halloween and it was great to see the streets full of kids and to watch the giggling little ones have fun in costume.
