Trick or treating has just started to slow down. The girls have been home for over an hour. They ran around with some of our neighbors for about 45 minutes before calling it quits. I'm actually glad as it means less candy to deal with!
The girls have been in costume since Wenesday morning. It started with preschool and gymnastics and then carried on with kindergarten, dance and finally the big day. Maya was dressed as Belle (Beauty and the Beast) up until this afternoon when she decided that she wanted to wear something warmer. Can't say that I blame her. Good thing that we have a couple of fuzzy unicorn costumes kicking around. Calla was dressed as Tinkerbell with a long blond hair piece just for fun!
This year we let the girls each decorate their own pumpkins with sticker kits and then Mike carved the biggest pumpkin. Thanks for all the pumkins Auntie Joan and Uncle Allan. We also made Halloween cookies (pumpkins and ghosts). Calla looked at me this evening as she was getting dressed up and said, "Mommy, I've waited all year for this! It finally happening!" So nice to hear such enthusiasm.
Calla's is the cat and Maya's is the princess.
Love to you all,
8 Years an Angel
