The kids both participated in the Halloween parade and classroom parties at school Friday. Mike took his lunch hour to watch the parade and I took the day off to help in Sophia’s classroom with costumes and activities. It was fun to see the kids’ excitement for the upcoming holiday. Sophia was a cheerleader and Sebastian was Joe Mauer.
Sophia’s class made “spider” cupcakes, had popcorn with a Halloween movie, listened to a scary story and received a treat bag with candy and goodies.
After school was over, we decided to carve our pumpkin. Sophia and Sebastian both agreed on a bat this year.
We spent Halloween day with yard work, errands and getting ready for the evening. Sebastian switched costumes for trick-or-treating. He was going for a scary look. Sophia stuck with her cheerleader costume.
Sebastian did some early trick-or-treating in our neighborhood with Sophia and Mike. He went to his friend’s house afterwards for more trick-or-treating and a sleepover. He ended up with about 5 times as much candy as Sophia. I’m sure we will have enough to last us until next year!
