Today was a day filled with fun and excitement! We started our day by having a visit from Caitlin and Benjamin's Great Granny. Daddy's Granny, Uncle Gary, and Aunt Mary came over to meet Benjamin. Great Granny was excited to hold Benjamin, the first Hurley great grandson. Yesterday was Great Granny's birthday so Caitlin and Allison sang happy birthday to her making her smile. Caitlin and Benjamin are so lucky to have two Great Grandmas still living.

After lunch and naptime, it was time for dance class. Caitlin and her friends got to dress up for dance class. Only four girls went to class tonight so they had a lot of one on one attention from Miss Megan. The girls had fun dancing in their costumes!

Once dance class was over it was time to go trick-or-treating. We stopped at Nina Nina Dia's house before going home.

We then went back to our house to trick-or-treat in our neighborhood with Allison. Our neighborhood was packed with trick-or-treaters. We easily had over 200 kids come to our house. Caitlin and Allison had fun trick-or-treating. Caitlin also liked handing out the candy to kids that came to our house. A special thanks to Poppy for making a scrumptious chili for dinner and to Nana for staying home with Benjamin and passing out candy while Mommy and Daddy were with Caitlin. Next year Benjamin will get to go trick-or-treating too.
