Happy Halloween!

Hello friends...enjoy some pictures from our fun Halloween today. It was a nice balance of fun and not being overwhelmed! Too bad it was in the mid-70s this afternoon and I had purposefully designed all of our costumes for temperatures about 15-25 degrees cooler!

After Jake went off to school, Timmy and I went to the Bellevue Early Childhood Center for a trick or treating experience at their building. Timmy made his debut in his R2D2 costume and it was a big hit...not just with the folks who admired it, but also with Timmy. He seemed comfortable and happy wearing it. Unfortunately, he can't sit down, but at least it was easy for him to put on and take off...so if he wanted to sit, it wasn't traumatic for him. Check out Yoda -- Yoda's Mom and I made sure to try to pose the boys together for a cute photo!

Timmy and I went to lunch, then the BX and commissary after the trick or treat event...Timmy looked fine in his white sweats, but I still had on my costume and got quite a few comments.

After errands, Timmy went to Alissa's for about 1 1/2 hours while I went to Jake's school to see the Halloween parade and help with his class Halloween party. I'm very glad Jake's school recognizes Halloween and allows the kids to express themselves through their costumes. It was awesome to see the sea of children in their costumes...

Jake is Mace Windu, from Star Wars Episodes I-III (Samuel L. Jackson). Since Mace is bald, Jake and I discussed how to be bald. Our choices: shave his head or come up with a pretend way to be bald, such as a headpiece from a costume store, or else some pantyhose. Jake chose to shave his head...I didn't shave it all the way, but it was pretty close:

Jake had a good time at his party, and after school, since it was officially the start of the weekend, I set up the Wii again (it had been put away for a while) and Jake and I knocked out 3 Lego Star Wars chapters this afternoon before dinner! Whoo hoo!

After Dave came home and we had a quick dinner, it was time to suit up again for trick or treating in our neighborhood. It was Dave's turn to take the boys...and this year, no stroller or wagon! I put my costume back on and stayed home to hand out the candy! I really enjoyed seeing how creative the kids can be...we had so many children come by!

Wow, great job on the R2D2. I'm really impressed! And I still brush the kids teeth at the ages of 5 and 6. I just don't trust 'em...
