Say what I will about Halloween, the kids do love it don’t they. Oh and plenty of adults do too. When else, afterall, can you rewear your wedding dress to be the bride of Chuckie, don an angry bird outfit or show off your goods as Captain Underpants? No pictures I’m afraid, but here’s a look at Bal and I as Bert and Mary Poppins at the weekend party we went to. Most people didn’t know who we were but Kaya and Brennyn appreciated it!
Check out some of the creative food there.
Not sure whether our friend inspired Brennyn, or the books themselves, but this is how she dresses herself the day before Halloween. No Captain Underpants, you are not going to school dressed like that even after your very impassioned speech about how your teachers would love that sooooo much.
Halloween day arrives and with it, true Halloween horrors. For on this day, I have volunteered to go with Kaya’s Grade 1 class (along with 2 other classes) to the pumpkin patch. That’s 65 kids on a bus on a windy road for one and a half hours. Once one kid puked, the mayhem began. Mamma’s passing ice cream pails and plastic bags back and forth as 6 kids puke while many more come close. Finally we arrive and while the sickness is done, the mayhem is not. 65 amped up kids ready to run and scream and jump in mud and find their golden pumpkin… Chaos in the best form, fun!
After 3 hours in the drizzle and mud and bedlam, there is no choice but to get back on the bus. 2 pukers on the trip home, though none near me (phew!)
Dinner, pumpkins lit, candy readied, costumes on, and GO!
Well okay, Bal does that. I’m still drinking…
