I think some of my love for the holiday has rubbed off on my kids. They start planning their costumes the day after Halloween for the next year. Granted, they then change their minds about a billion times and I still don't start making the costumes until about a week before they need to be done, but at least the creative juices are flowing. This year Leona opted to be a pumpkin, Jonny a dalmatian, Calvin "Super Hero Calvin" and Miss Emmeline is Princess Leia. Last Wednesday, we went to a Halloween party at church.
|notice the cool "dalmatian head handbag" ?!|
Check out these awesome "witch's fingers" I took as my side dish.
Yesterday we carved pumpkins...
|Leona had fun taking out the guts.|
|Calvin wasn't a big fan of the guts... in fact he didn't even touch them.|
|Emme carved her pumpkin entirely by herself.|
|And Jonny mostly enjoyed getting away with sitting on the table.|
Today, I sent the daring duo off to school, where they enjoyed a costume parade this morning, PE, lunch and a couple recesses followed by a Halloween party this afternoon... of course, I'm sure they squeezed in some math and science too, it is "school" after all.
Hippie Chick Registration to open... although running in the night time dark on Halloween might not be the smartest thing to do.)
Hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween... even if you are merely hiding out in your house with all the lights off (like my parents do to avoid trick or treaters).
Race report coming soon... really, really soon... I promise. :)
