Halloween 2012


Well it is hard to believe that Halloween has already come and gone.  The kids had a great time and got tons of candy (which I am trying not to eat).

The school asked that the kids dress in black and / or orange and they did a “crazy hair” day.  I was trying to be creative but before 7am I am not much of an artiste.  I did some funky pony-tails for Naomi and a bit of a spiky Mohawk for Francis and then doused them both in glitter spray. 




Too bad the glitter spray doesn’t show in the picture.

After the kiddos got on the bus I put out the pumpkins and got a bit creative with some old pirate costume stuff we had hanging around (this is after several coffees).  Damn squirrels started eating my pumpkin’s face right off!



Then I got even more creative and decided that Miss Mokie needed a costume too.  A bit of tulle and elastic and presto – doggie ballerina (she hated it).


Francis had a hockey practice from 5:00 – 6:00pm – he was really not happy about having practice on Halloween but he made the most of it and made his teammates laugh:


He rushed in in such a hurry after hockey that I didn’t even get a chance to snap a picture of him before he ran off with his friends to go trick-or-treating!  He was dressed in his baseball uniform with the LA Angels jersey and cap he bought in California last March.

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!
