Halloween Happenings

Our Halloween festivities started on Friday. I woke up at 4:45 to prepare...I had to pack Caitlin's bag, make a crown for Prince Charming, pack a bag with dinner for the school carnival that night, bake pumpkin bread for Caitlin's teachers, and stop at the store for my costume on the way into work. Someone on Facebook commented that I was "too organized." I think organized would mean NOT getting up before the crack of dawn.

 I discovered at 10pm Thursday night that in all my pre-baby cleaning I got rid of my Halloween t-shirt. I'd seen a homemade costume a few years ago that caught my fancy so I bought a bag of candy and tape on my way to school. I was a Smarty Pants. (Yes, I am sure my family is loving that one...I didn't get a picture, but it was a hit!)

The Irishman got to go to the Pumpkin Parade at Caitlin's school. I sent him with the camera so he could take pictures for me!

Friday evening was our school's Halloween Howl. Cinderella and Prince Charming put their costumes back on and enjoyed a few of the little carnival games.

Saturday we headed to Trick-or Treating along the Avenue. It was a bit too close to nap time so Caitlin watched from her stroller. It was SO warm. We did a bit of costume-watching, but left before the parade.

Our Halloween is turning out to have more tricks than treats! Caitlin woke up with a little cough and has a slight fever. It is probably a good thing that we didn't really have any plans for today. It looks like we'll be skipping the beach and spending the day at home!

Happy Halloween!

Rylee loved the Halloween photos. She said "pretty" when she saw Caitlin's Cinderella dress. Tell Prince Charming I thought he looked great too!
