Halloween on Main Street.

Ready to go...
We went trick or treating on Main Street. The whole street was closed off to any traffic and every store there was giving away candy, what a fun event! Needless to say it was PACKED!
Even the Police was giving away candy...

Sam had a deal with Jeff..he told her he would buy any Butterfinger she got for 25 cents each. She was all over that, she is always looking for a way to make money! lol

Both Sam and Anaïs were a little sick though so they definitely didn't have the same energy level they usually have. I think they still had fun though.

All about Halloween at school!

Today was the classroom Halloween party and Fall Festival at Sam's school.
Since I am one of the room parents, I was in charge of most of the organizing for the classroom party as the other room parent was out of town.
I made goodie bags for all the kids. I had to be creative because the teacher asked to not have any food items in them.
During the room party, we made crafts with the kids and rotated with the two other 1st grades classes. We made a little Halloween snack which turned out pretty cute. We found these Halloween shaped tortilla chips, the kids LOVED them!
The kids did really good with their crafts:
Of course, Anaïs made sure she was involved in

First craft completed...

Getting started on the second craft, a skeleton made out of pasta:

Third project was a Halloween coloring sheet.
On Fridays, Sam gets out of school at 12:30 so she wanted me to stay and eat lunch with her and then stay during recess until it was time to go home. Sam and her friends were so cute with Anaïs, they made sure to include her in all the fun.
Then at 6:00 it was time to go back to school for the Fall Festival. Since it's pretty cold out everything was inside. They had transformed the school hallway in a "spooky alley", it was cute.

Then in the gym room they had a bunch of games.

Anaïs loved the dancing games...
And the cupcakes...

Both kids had a great time...and I am ready for bed now!!! LOL

A princess and a cheetah...

Yesterday we were invited to a kids Halloween costume party at Jeff's sister's house. The girls were excited to get to wear their costumes. Here they are on our front porch:

And a quick hug at the party...

Pumpkin patch.

Today we went to a pumpkin patch with some friends and had a great time. We went on a wagon ride, hay maze and saw all kinds of animals.
The maze was really fun although my friend and I were chatting and totally thought we lost our kids in the maze at some

I love this time of the year...all these holidays are so much fun.
