Halloween was definitely the focus of the week for the kids. Two events (one for Emma and one for Johnny and Lily) were cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy, but one party and trick or treating was really enough for them anyhow. I am just grateful that we were on the fringe of that storm, instead of in the middle. Batman, Spiderman, and Little Red Riding Hood enjoyed taking our cute little pumpkin trick or treating, with a little help from Dad. :)
I couldn’t resist posting these photos of my three girls wearing the same Halloween outfit – with three years between each Halloween:
Aren’t they adorable? Johnny was a super cute duck for his first Halloween, although (as you can tell) he wasn’t very keen on posing for pictures:
Don’t worry, I didn’t let my ten-month-old eat candy bars (much to his disappointment…)
With Halloween over, I’m looking forward to focusing on Gratitude with Thanksgiving coming up this month. I’m very grateful that my kids get up in the morning and create beautiful things like this for me to wake up to! Emma gets to have a special class in a teepee this week, and I’m excited to see what she learns. Johnny has a bad cold, so we’ll see if he makes it to school on Monday.
How was your week? Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving-themed craft or activity?
