We have had many exciting Halloween activities this past week. Rylee and Karlee had a FREEZING Halloween Parade at school...but you'd never know it from their huge smiles! We had to run directly from that to Audree's Halloween Program at pre-school. She was hilarious! I have never seen such a dramatic 4 year old. She sang loud and did every movement on cue! I LOVED watching her and had tears half from laughing and half from being so proud of her! Here are pictures of the big events!
Today was the BIG day and we got lucky everything fell into place! About a month ago I was thinking I would have Spencer be a ghost for Halloween...so I said, "hey spence, you want to be a ghost for Halloween??" and he replied..."No! I want to be a pirate!!" He was insistent and so I gave in and bought a really cute costume online. It came to our house and I pulled it out of the box and he acted excited until I tried to put it on him...then he flipped out! He REFUSED to put that costume on and for the past 2 weeks it sat on my dresser and he wouldn't get near it. He kept saying, "I don't like to be a pirate, it's scary."
Then we had a ward Halloween party 2 days ago...he could only go if he put on the costume. After some discussion he gave in and luckily hasn't fought it since. I think he looks adorable in it! whew...disaster averted!
Also, Audree hasn't felt very well the last day...just a low grade fever and a tummy ache. I thought it would get worse right before trick-or-treating, but an afternoon nap and a bit of Ibuprophen and she hit the street running. whew...disaster 2 averted!
So, here are the pictures of the kids about to collect their spoils...oh, and Jake and I got in on the act too!
