Halloween 2012

Alas, Halloween was here! We carved our pumpkins during our hurrication. Well, I should say, the kids picked their designs, and I carved them. It was really fun to do something other than the usual goofy jack-o-lantern face.
Alyse could pick up her pumpkin!  (Side note:  Didn't I JUST wash the front of the dishwasher?  Ewww...)

Baby girl was very interested in this pumpkin business.  In fact, "pumpkin" is one of her recent new words!

The finished products!  An angry bird, a bat and a Dora!

On Halloween, Calder's school had "Dress like a book character day".  He decided to be the Cat in the Hat (from the book "Inside Your Outside")

I teleworked on Halloween, so I could go to the daycare Halloween parade.  Alyse wore her ghost costume, but you couldn't really see it because she was cruising in the buggy with her classmates.  She stared at me forever, before she finally realized it was me!  :)

Tessa, marching with her classmates in the parade.

Tessa just moved up to the 4-year old classroom, and she absolutely LOVES her new teacher Ms. Erycka.  She talks about her all the time and makes frequent remarks about her "beautiful hair". 

Ready to trick or treat! 
Excited little police officer!

Mr. Jailbird

Our last baby owl.  All three kids have worn this costume.  I still love it!  It did not take Alyse long to get the hang of trick or treating!  She loved reaching in and grabbing her own candy, and after a while she wouldn't even let us carry her bag for her.  It got very heavy, so she would stop and set it down for a break, but then pick it back up on keep on going!
Even though I knew I would put her in the owl costume on Halloween, I couldn't resist making this adorable ghost costume that I saw on Pinterest.  We already had a white tutu, so I just had to sew a face on a onesie.  Isn't she the most adorable little ghost!?
