We kicked off Halloween by going to Caleb's Halloween play on Thursday. He got to dress up in his costume (Oompa Loompa) and they sang all kinds of cute Halloween songs & told a cute Halloween story. All the decorations on the curtain they made in class all month long and they got to take them home at the end of the play.
Caleb with his teacher (Mrs. Olsen) whom we love dearly! She was Nash's first grade teacher too.
Thursday night we finally carved our pumpkins! I made the kids wait until their dad was home because it's a bit difficult for me to carve five at a time!
On Friday after teaching preschool I went up to the elementary school to help with Caleb's class party. They always do a Halloween costume parade so all the kids can see each other. The parents line the walls of the school as the kids go by. After they parade through the school they go outside to perform a Halloween dance they learned in PE.
Doing their Halloween dance for all the parents:
The kids were super excited that dad was home for halloween this year. This is the first time in the last five years that he's been home on Halloween to go with us!
My Oompa Loompas:

Silvermist the water fairy:
Red Riding Hood & the big bad wolf:
Zombie Alice's Cheshire Cat (and cheshire cat pumpkin)
We ventured out to Grandma Kris & Grandpa Scott's house to celebrate Grandma Kris's birthday. The kids took off running right after Grandma got pictures of them in their costumes! Nash ended up with close to 4 lbs of candy! Brooke did two sides of two streets and was done but that's just because she wanted to play with her cousin Olivia! It was super nice weather (a smidge of wind but it wasn't cold and it wasn't long) too. Happy Halloween!
