I love Halloween. If I wasn't in a hurry I would post our past Halloween get ups. I'll save it for next year. Here is what my Halloween was like this year...
In the morning, after Maya was off too school, I had lots of time to get pictures of Eden before kindergarten...
But none of Maya...sorry My Pie.
A fun lunch to celebrate my dear friend Meghann's birthday.
The poor girl was born on Halloween and rarely gets to actually celebrate her birthday on her birthday because of all of the holiday hoopla. So this year we had about an hour to celebrate before school parties started. Notice how I'm the ONLY one dressed up! SERIOUSLY why does that always happen to me! Next year I want to see some more festiveness. I've got some costumes to spare so there will no excuse for lame everyday get up next Halloween.
Then off to Maya's party. I got roped into being room mom...again.
So we had the doughnut on a string game for the third year in a row. What can I say...it cracks me up!
Once I knew Maya's party was going well I snuck off to Eden's party. Here she is with her fun teacher Mrs. Martins.
Eden was so happy to see "Flicka" her horse. She couldn't take her on the bus with her because "the bus driver would not like having a horse on his bus."
After partying hard, we relaxed for a couple of hours. Then we were off to hit the streets...This is what we saw most of the night...
Eden dragging poor Flicka and trying to keep up with Maya. She refused to let us carry her horse. She said that she wanted the people to see Flicka.
After about an hour, their buckets were full and heavy, Maya's handle seriously broke off.
Time to go home.
We had a fun night with the girls. But what would Halloween night be like without some scary movies. So we had our favorite scary movie friends, the Sampsons, over and got freaked out by "The Grudge" and then laughed through "The Gravedancers".
So that was our Halloween. I didn't get a picture of all of us together. In fact I just realized I didn't get a picture of Aric at all! He was a football player. Not as fun as Napoleon Dynamite like he was last year but still a costume. Here is a picture of his football hand that made it's way into a picture.
