Halloween Fun!

Our Halloween turned out to be 2 days of fun, starting on Thursday. My MOPS group had a Hallo-wasn't party which was lots of fun and it gave me an opportunity to meet some new moms. It was so fun to see all the kids dressed up in their Halloween costumes. I dressed Mason up as a spider, but his costume is pretty bulky so he only tolerated it for about 5 minutes.
I wish he would have worn it longer because he looked so cute. Unfortunately this became the norm. He also only wore his costume for about 2 minutes on Halloween.
Abigail's official Halloween costume was Little Miss Muffet, but I didn't have her wear it to the party. Instead I dressed her up in a tutu. I didn't get a picture of her standing up but here she is sitting down to look at all of her neat goodies she received.

Friday Abigail's class joined in on the schools Halloween parade. This was the the first time they participated in this parade. John took off of work to join us. It was great having him there, however Abigail decided she wanted to be with her daddy. We finally got her to join the parade which was so cute. Abigail's class age range is 18 months up to 30 months. Abigail is the oldest in the class at 29 months. She is also quite independent, and at one point when her class was sitting down cheering on the older kids, Abigail was marching in the parade.

Mason also enjoyed the parade, but mostly he enjoyed playing in Abigail's classroom and out on the playground. He is ready to go to preschool!

Finally Halloween night! We decided to go to a church carnival at a church we had never been to before. I am so glad that we did. We had so much fun and once again, Abigail and John were the ones having the most fun. She went on jumpy slides, and a pony ride. The church set up "Truth or Treating" on there 3rd floor. The kids went from room to room getting their treat bags filled up. The last thing we did was the pony ride and Abigail is still talking about her princess pony "Pinkheart". The kids were exhausted and fell asleep as soon as there little bodies hit their carseat. We enjoyed those 2 days and I am so thankful for my children.
