Halloween was great!!!!
Spencer went to his mother's day out program dressed as a fireman as he couldn't go as a scary ghost. They had a party and then a parade the kids marched in.
We carved pumpkins earlier in the day and decorated some little ones. Spencer did NOT like touching the "pumpkin goobies" as he calls them. The kids really enjoyed making them and then looking at them when they were all done and lit up.
After supper we all got dressed to go out trick or treating. The kids were monsters, Spencer a ghost, Peyton a witch, Sydney the bride of Frankenstein and Caden a skeleton. I figured that Bob and I should get into the action too, so we dressed up as the "mummy" and "daddy". Peyton kept asking if we had a boo boo while we were wrapping ourselves up. ha ha ha Even the birds dressed up...........as giant mosquitos. lol
We went trick or treating for about and hour and a half. The kids were just exhausted when we got home. Not too tired to partake of some of their goodies though. They were too cute lugging their overfull buckets of candy around. They all were so good about saying "trick or treat" and then "thank you", I was so proud of them. Caden of course ran for the doors first so he could ring the doorbell a hundred times until they answered, I was mortified. Peyton was a little timid at first and didn't want to get too close to the people who answered the door. Once she realized they had candy she got over it pretty quick. Sydney would get her candy and then tell everyone to "run" to the next house. Spencer was on the move and hard to keep up with, he couldn't believe that it was finally halloween.
