I hope everyone had as much fun as we had this Halloween!
We started the holiday spirit early, with Abbey rocking her pumpkin costume. She loves dressing up! She never tries to take costumes off… in fact, I had to get her out of her cage where she had gone to rest to get it off of her before I left for the day. (Safety first!) She and I dropped Harlow off at school, then came back and watched Nightmare Before Christmas. (Well, Abbey watched while I did some housework…)
Our festivities began with Harlow’s class party. As I had mentioned previously, I was SO excited to be a part of the planning of the party this year. It went surprisingly smoothly, considering there were only 4 adults, and over 20 children, all wild with holiday spirit! I’m constantly impressed with Harlow’s teacher, and school in general. They are a well-run ship.
The games and crafts were a hit! The kids did so well on the crafts – I was so pleased!
The Witch’s Brooms I made, and the “examples” for the kids to follow for the craft…
After the party, all the kids trouped outside for a costume parade!
Once the parade was finished, we got to go home a bit early! It was nice to have a little time to relax and watch some SUPER MONSTERS! before doing a costume change and heading out to Trick-or-Treat! The last few years, Harlow and I have had the same or coordinating costumes. It is so much fun to do that, and she loves it! (Abbey missed out this year, but she usually is in on the action, too!)
This year we went as Vampirina and her mom, Oxana. I think we did pretty well!
We Trick-or-Treated for a full hour, and came home with a pretty impressive haul!
Now I have to decide if I’m going to go Christmas Crazy, or if I’m going to start planning for NEXT Halloween! There are only 364 more days to go, you know!
One final note: My oldest nephew turned 18! I was living with his family (in college) when he was born, so he and I have always had a tiny bit more of a bond. He has grown into a truly cool guy. I see really great things for him to come! Happy 18th birthday, Preston!
