Pumpkins and Costumes

The week leading up to Halloween was incredibly busy. Luckily Papa (or Poppy as Kaity is now calling him) brought over a pumpkin and carved it with the kids. Otherwise, they might not have had a jack-o-lantern this year. Just call me a super busy mom who forgot to find the pumpkin patch!

The kids were fairly creative this year. Will went as a Ninja this year (because he got to wear swords) and Kaity went as Batgirl. Kaity was the only little girl under 5 that I saw not dressed as a princess, mermaid, or Southern belle. She was quite the rebel.

I spent all day Friday volunteering in Will's classroom. It was exhausting! I don't know how the teacher does it. But, the kids all got to dress in costume, they had a parade around the school, a Halloween luncheon, and trick-or-treated from classroom to classroom. It was quite the day. I hoped we were done for the day, but alas, there was still more trick-or-treating to be done.

Since we live on a farm, we've got to go into town to trick-or-treat. For the last couple of years, we've done this with friends that have little girls Will and Kaity's age. They're very sweet and we don't hang out with them enough.

Great family picture of us.

This was our trick-or-treating group - parents and everything.

Here are all the kids. How many princesses do you see? And, how many non-princesses? Just my rebel, Batgirl. Although, she did give in and do a little beauty parlor with her friends. Batgirl's got to have her glitter sparkle, too.

I love the little Nemo in this picture. BTW, anyone seen our Finding Nemo movie since Scot borrowed it way back when?

Good for Kaity! I wonder how long she'll resist the Disney Princess-ization of little girls today. It has really bummed me out that they hoisted the princess out of Disney movies, and completely separated them from a storyline or other characters - they're just pretty girls in pretty dresses. :p
