Happy Halloween


we started our day off with dad staying home for the entire morning! i loved it because i actually got ready before 8:00am! yeah! then i took the 2 older kids to school and got the 2 younger ones ready for storytime at the library. they were so excited to wear their costumes!






we read many stories about anansi the spider. then we got to make anansi! m and f were in heaven...i don't let them play with real playdough. we used this really cool modeling playdough from crayolla. i have never seen this stuff. it was totally cool and i loved it. so if my kids ever want playdough for...anything...this is the stuff to get. no mess...it's like foam playdough. it's amazing. they had a blast. then the librarians gave out treat bags to all the kids. it was so cute. we gave f's spider a faux hawk!





we headed home to get our piano tuned. it's been a LONG time and 2 moves so it was bad. now it sound beautiful and i am really going to enjoy a and k practicing. we had lunch then off to school for m and b left for work. at 1:30 was the halloween parade at school. so cute. all the students and teachers dressed up. i loved it. then class parties. what fun.










and if that isn't enough...tricker treating to end our fun filled halloween day! i love it. k didn't want to go because there are so many things she can't eat because of her expander but we told her she could trade candy with her friends at school or give all her candy to her dad.




maybe next year we'll have a halloween party. i have always wanted to have one. just haven't had the time. i should start planning now. BOO!

I remember when we could dress up for school on halloween, that was so fun i'm glad your kids got to do it.

Wow, that was a fun-packed day! And it sounds like you survived it well. I like all of your pictures. Those spiders are very cute, especially Ford's!

Way to go on the pumpkin carving! I am impressed! We didn't even carve our pumpkins this year. I love the kids costumes too. Way too cute!

Geneva said...

you are a brave soul carving pumpkins all by yourself! They turned out darling and what cute kids in their costumes. Wish you guys were in Southern Nevada, wouldn't that be so fun!
