Ezra ended up with three times as much candy as Calvin by perfecting a brilliant maneuver where he would get as close as possible to the candy giver at the door. While they were chatting and handing treats to the other masked marauders, Ezra was simply loading his sack on the sly. More than once he would get the, "oh, that's enough dear". He's quite the rig.
The kids, all decked out in Soulemama custom apparel(Ezra in a retrofit of his Grampie's old costume from the 50's!), had a blast in some of South Portland's oldest neighborhoods where trick or treating is still alive and well and safe. They hit the fire station to see Grampie, too.
Amanda will be back tomorrow morning to give you a full report on what's been keeping her so busy. Thank you all so very much for checking the SoulePapa Blogs while she was out. I now have even more respect for the dedication it takes and for the strong community you all have formed across the world. Simply... Beautiful.
