Well I hugely lucked out on Halloween morning as Ben didn't have to go in to work until 9 am! 9 am! It was amazing. And a huge help since all three kids were to be dressed and ready in their Halloween costumes for the start of school. It was fun all walking to school:
Lucy and I stayed at school and hung out for a bit while Ben went back home to get things ready for him to head out to work. He came back to school in time for the 8:30 parade:
After the parade it was to Lucy's gymastics, then the store (which was super busy!), then home to get veggie snacks ready for the boys' classrooms, lunch for Lucy, drive to school to deliver snacks, back home, Lucy to nap, then computer-time. There is still a huge mess waiting for me in the kitchen. . . blech.
I did a lot of Halloween-inspired foods this week:
Halloween evening was fun - but it was girls versus boys. Okay, we weren't against each other, we just weren't with each other. Emmy was invited to a friend's Halloween party and so I took her, along with Lucy, and we enjoyed that. There was dinner (mummy dogs - just like I had made for our boys!), orange and black chips, orange and black fruit kabobs (blackberries and cantaloupe - yummy!), and more. There were games, even door-to-door (bedroom doors and bathroom doors . . .) trick or treating. :) The boys went out trick-or-treating here in our neighborhood. Another family from the ward, who had a "Willy Wonka," joined them. They had fun, too.
All in all a great Halloween.
