Halloween was a doozy this year! After a half day with my kids (including carving 16 pumpkins) and squeezing in 2 parent conferences, I headed to the annual Halloween party at Cage’s school. They read some stories, shared their costumes, ate tons of snacks and they played (a lot of running in circles burning off the first round of candy).
We then made a pit stop at home before heading to the Mill creek Town Center to Trick-or-Treat. It was a blast and Cage loved seeing all the other kids’ costumes. I certainly didn’t mind that we were able to hit 2 dozen stores in 30 minutes and avoid the rain.
That meant we got home in time to hand out candy to Trick-or-Treaters at our place, but since the weather took a turn for the worst, it we out had about 25. Fortunately/Unfortunately we had candy for the 100+ we usually get
Teacher Stephanie reading to the kiddos (FYI – she had copies of the pictures blown up on the side for the kids to see and the words on the back – brilliant!)
Abby (Cage’s BFF) and her litle sister Brooklyn – they were so stinking cute!
Please notice the other healthy choices I loaded his plate with – and yes that’s a cupcake in his mouth.
Cage had to show me the special monmsters they have to go with Where the Wild Things Are – his favorite book at school (perhaps next year’s costume?).
Ready to rumble!
This kind woman gave him candy even though he asked if she was an evil witch – priceless.
Cage chatted this fairy up – she thought he was adorable – sucker!
We stopped by Mary’s after the Town Center – Cage knew she’d have treats!
He got a real kick out of eating Swedish fish (Shark eating fish – get it?)
He sprinted to the door eveytiem the bell rang – he had to check out every Trick-or-Treater.
