AKA: The Recap and Picture Overload
Ah… the days keep getting away from me. Each year I want to post our Halloween pictures but that is always slighted by our anniversary. These past few days were fun, filled with all things pumpkin and candy.
As in all years past, the boys were super excited to carve pumpkins only to have that excitement fizzle about five minutes into the process. They started out strong and interested.
Man, I love those hand dimples.
And round cheeks.
Mr. Dunbar, of course, finished off the pumpkin.
One pumpkin carved.
Part Two: The Parade
Bogie’s pre-school did not do a “Halloween Parade” instead it was a Community Helpers Parade. And since he is adamant that he is going to be “the police” when he grows up, that’s exactly what he dressed up as. He looked like a New York City traffic cop and he was proud as punch.
The Grandma’s came to watch the parade.
Part Three: Classroom Crafts
I went to help out with crafts in Monkey’s class. It’s still very surreal to be on this side of the whole classroom and parent teacher thing. Monkey’s teacher rocks though, she teaches just like I did and she loves (standards-based) crafts.
Part Four: The Neighborhood
Part Five: Trunk N Treat
Our church does a phenomenal job of TrunkNTreating. The cars and people are decked out, all in good fun. There are no scary, spooky, dark side cars. Which I love and its so fun for the kids. We Treated down one row of cars and then my boys wanted to go play games and bounce.
Fierce faces? Scary faces?
And we called it a night.
Wow it was a busy day.
And now its November, so we’re moving on.
