Happy Halloween from the Wicked Witch and her two little monsters!
Halloween festivities began early this year, with a fun festival (to include a trunk or treat!) at church the weekend before. The kids liked the cupcake walk, fishing for a prize, balloon animals, and trying to eat a donut off the string without the use of their hands.
A task not so easy for a 5 year old, and a lot harder for a two year old!
Jake's kindergarten classroom was visited by many a super hero, witches, and the occasional Peter Pan the afternoon of Halloween. Mom got to come and help run the games for the party.
Trying to throw rings onto the stem of a pumpkin wasn't easy, unless you're less than 12 inches away. (Cheater, cheater, Pumpkin Eater Jacob!)
"I'm watching you!"
We spent Halloween evening with friends, eating dinner at the Wahlquist's house and trick or treating together afterwards. It was cold, and my little Minnie Mouse quickly tired of trick or treating. "Mommy, take me home. Go to bed." "All done." "Carry me!" Jake, on the other hand, would have kept on all night. What's a little cold when there's candy to be had?!? :)
