    Well, Lizzie. I think your brother had originally planned for you to go out with him and his friends as a part of their rocker entourage. As you are in your clown outfit trick-or-treating with your mother, it is safe to assume that:\
    -
    a. Elly won the battle with Lizzie over wearing the punk rocker outfit vs. the clown outfit.
    -
    b. Considering that Elly equated punk rockers with angry kids a few days ago, she probably did not approve of Lizzie hanging out with Michael’s rocker- costumed friends.

    Aww Elly, go to a few more houses with the kid. Sore feet can be take care of when you get home.

    Awww, keep going, Elly! I love Halloween and I’m usually the one to say “a couple more houses”. It’s only one night and so much fun!

    I seriously doubt that Michael intended for Lizzie to go with him and his friends… just a few days ago, remember, Michael was tellin her to get out of their way when she wanted to play with them, and her Dad came to the rescue. Older kids rarely want their younger brothers or sisters to hang out with them.

    Yeah, I kept up with the kids last year while trick or treatin’, and after I got home, my right knee went bye-bye.

    I can agree with you in principle. There are a few differences for this particular occasion:
    -
    a. The theme of the costumes for the boys involved rockers which would include both Michael and Lizzie’s outfits.
    -
    b. Mike was proud of Lizzie’s outfit. He had her show it off to Elly way in advance of Halloween. He didn’t want her out of the way then. He liked the reaction it got.
    -
    c. It looked to me like Michael had something to do with making Lizzie’s punk rocker outfit, although they did not state this explicitly.

    Sorry, Lizzie, but next year everyone will be a year older. Nobody’ll be younger.
