Oct. 17 Pumpkin Festival at school. Costumes, pumpkin launch, snacks, playing with all her friends.
Oct. 24 Halloween party at my friend Ann's. Of course, my daughter wore her costume.
Oct. 29 Trick-or-Treat party at the local alternative high school. They do it up for the neighborhood kids.
Oct. 31 Trick-or-Treat time in Boulder, on Pearl street, at 2pm, with her friend, Zoe. Then back home afterward for real trick-or-treating with her cousins, in our neighborhood.
Nov. 1 Day of the Dead party at our friend's house. They said to specifically "bring your kids."
