so I got up early today to post our Halloween pics before turkey day arrives. i'm so behind on all of this blogging business!
this year we decided to have two parties. two parties on the same night. the 4th graders came from 6-8pm and then the high schoolers came from 8:30-11pm. in our efforts to get to know the people our kiddos hang out with at school it has created a lot of work. but party prep is just the kind of work I like so here goes!
the hubs was "the fox" from the infamous video.
the First lady invited quite a few, but some of the girls couldn't make it so we had many more boys.
and that made a huge difference, I tell ya.
those boys were crazy pants and on more than one occasion i had to whip out my teacher hat.
at least they weren't piling on top of each other every chance they got!
most of them were actors from the plays our oldest had been in so they kept us entertained and laughing all night.
especially during haunted Pictionary.
in all it's a pretty good group of kids and we're glad we've gotten a chance to get to know them off stage at least.
on halloween night it was time for trick or treat. yes, i realize our oldest is 14 and 6ft, but i truly believe there's worse things teens can be doing halloween night than going from house to house for candy. it's only one night a year, let'em have some fun too.
the Lil' Lady, however, couldn't be held back! in years past she struggled to get through just a few houses with all of the walking but this time we couldn't slow her down!
when it got too cold and she got too tired we did cheat and put her in the car though
had to take this picture. the Vikings obviously aren't doing too well this season. notice the face they drew on the bag they put over his head!
throughout the evening she became a bit more brazen. she would run to the door and ask if they had their candy ready and on one occasion she asked if she could have more when 2 pieces were dropped in her bag already!
the poor folks who held out the bowl and said "pick what you want" didn't realize it was a 5 minute process so we had to put the kabash on that after the first few.
then there were those who just left their bowl with a sign that said "take one, please!" she always took one, but i had to take a picture of this bowl....those who know this girl will know which one she picked
her favorite color is blue:)
Happy Halloween 2013!
