The kids were pretty excited, so we all woke up early. We got to the mall just before the 10am opening. I was just too ecstatic that my parking was only a few slots away from the mall entrance. “Woohoo! We’re so early, I’m sure there aren’t crowds yet!”
As we turned the bend towards the Mall Concierge where trick-or-treaters are supposed to register, we got a good view of the mob! The lines – 2 lines to serve three thousand expected participants – were so looooong already! Oh well…
We fell in line just the same. It so happened, by wonderful coincidence, that Julie and kids were at the end of the line. A few minutes later, Cookie and her girls, dressed up as Gagambita and Valentina, arrived.
Nate as himself :P, Patch as the pumpkin witch, Gaby as Gagambita, Tania as herself (angel!), VGood as a fairy, Trixie as herself too, Adi as Valentina, and Julian as The Lone Ranger.
Another good thing happened – Cookie’s friend, who must have seen us far, far down the line, took pity and got us several “authorized” Trinoma loot bags when she registered. Yehey! Effectively, she registered for us. We were all too grateful and happy to fall out of the line and start trick-or-treating!
Though the treats were scarce (some shops weren’t ready with treats, the others ran out too soon), my kids had fun! It’s the company that always matters.
Moms, let’s do this more often. Next up – Christmas party! 🙂
