Happy Halloween!

It has been a busy week...... like always! Monday the kids played outside while I got to sew a little and came in with two handfuls of wildflowers they had picked. Very sweet kids I have.
Tuesday we carved some pumpkins and then had their last soccer game of the season. The kids did great and have learned so much in the two months since they started.

Yesterday after a morning meeting at work I got to have a special lunch date with my son at his school. They have two tables set aside - one on the stage and one by the windows in the cafeteria. Guess which one we had to sit at? Yup, you guessed it. He took us right up on the stage. Just the two of us with our Wendy's lunch bags (his choice!). Another Mom and her son moved up and joined us after a few minutes. His classmates kept looking and waving and I got to put a few more names to faces and meet a few of them. His question when I was leaving - 'Mom, Can Dad come and do this too.... and then you come every day?'. I am going to enjoy this since I am sure it will not be too long before they want nothing to do with us! As Emmy can not go with me for lunch dates at school (school policy) I will just try and do this once a month and have Grandma pick up Emmy for a special lunch date. A big thanks to my MIL for collecting Em yesterday and taking her for lunch at IHOP - her choice!. My kids are too funny.

Today Aidan has  a little party at school and so does Emily. I am a parent helper at her school today so it should be interesting. The kids looked so cute dressed in their costumes at VPK this morning. I can't wait to see all of them around 10AM. I know my tinkerbell loves her costume.... and I'm sure she will be wearing it a lot for dress up.

Kids in costumes 10/25 for the PTO trick or treat at the school.

Mikaela is Princess Sophia this year. I told Paul we might as well do a dual costume that she can dress up in later. She's so excited for tonight.

Happy Halloween! My youngest stayed home and handed out candy instead of trick-or-treating for the first time this year, and is currently ooing and ah-ing over cute little ones like yours. I loved the little stage, but she's fun to watch at this stage too!

How cute your kiddos were in their costumes!! How neat that their costumes will be recycled as dress up costumes!
