This year we decided that we'd throw our own costumes together instead of spending $100 plus on store bought ones! That was so much nicer!!
Macy decided she wanted to be a witch - perfect! Jack wanted to be a train engineer, then decided a few hours beforehand that he wanted to be a banana! Well, it was too late to rig up some kind of banana costume, so we stuck with the engineer!
Macy had the usual school Halloween parade. There were a ton of witches this year! I went in to help out with her 1st grade party after I dropped Jack off at school. Let me just say that I am SO glad I do not have to do that everyday!! I stayed and ate lunch with Macy. We had the choice of eating in the hall at a special table or eating in the caf with the rest of the kids. She wanted me to sit in the caf. Oh. My. Goodness! Can you say loud??? Wow! I was glad to get out of there!! They have a traffic light in there. It's on green when the noise level is acceptable. They move it to yellow when it gets louder and all the kids put their hands up to hopefully make silence. Well, it got to yellow while I was there and I don't even want to know what red sounds like!! Here she is in the parade.
Here they both are, in separate pictures. Apparently it is just wrong for them to be in a picture together without one trying to beat up the other!
I totally forgot to put on Jack's red bandana! Chris was working until 7pm that night. If he was home, I know it wouldn't have been forgotten!
Here is our jack-o-lantern. We actually had another to carve but we ran out of time! Nothing fancy! We do it the old fashioned way like we did when I was a kid - with a paring knife!
Hope everyone had a fun night!! Thanks for reading!
