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!
One thought on “Halloween 2009”
Great pictures. Sebastian, you look pretty scary and Sophia you make a perfect cheerleader. See you soon.
