Happy Halloween! The kids are home from school after having their costume parades and class parties. They already have consumed a boatload of sugar and we haven’t even started trick-or-treating yet. Will they ever go to bed tonight? We will see.
Here are more highlights from our weekend pre-Halloween activities. Friday night we attended the Spookfest at the elementary school. We ate a chili dinner then played all of the carnival-style games and walked through the spook alley in the school library.
We finally carved pumpkins last night. I think this is the first year Sam and Abby almost completely carved their own pumpkins. And we also baked some Halloween cookies for Kaitlyn’s preschool class party.
In just another hour or so our doorbell will start ringing. We get hundreds of trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. We usually just sit outside because it is so much easier than answering the door constantly. Our kids are so excited they can’t stand it. The sky looks a little threatening with rainclouds, but hopefully it will stay dry. At least it isn’t snowing!
