My little ninja, Storm Shadow, and lady bug had a blast trick or treating. Broderick had been running a fever Friday afternoon and Saturday, but being a good mom...I let him do anyway. Terrible I know, but when you are almost 6 you can't miss trick or treating. And Carys, she would have been devastated if her big brother didn't come along. We tried to not push him and let him go at his own pace. Needless to say, they took about a 30 minute break and then were back at it. We usually have friends over and do a fire in the driveway, but so many kids were sick it was just us. It really ended up being a very fun night.
Thursday was Carys' Halloween party. It was so fun! Little 3 year olds are so sweet! We decorated pumpkins, had a parade of costumes, ate snacks and played games. It was so fun to see her with her friends.
Friday was Broderick's Halloween party. It was also fun to see him at school. I always wonder what he is like at school. He was so well behaved and kind to his friends. He had a great time and it was nice to meet some other moms and see him interact with the other kids. They really do grow up way to fast. Above: every Friday Broderick's neighborhood (2 first grade classes and 2 kindergarten classes) Do a sing a long. Since I was there early to help decorate for the party, I got to peek in on them. Broderick loves to sing, but is very shy about it when he knows I am watching. He is actually very good. Below: He was Superman at school because he couldn't wear his mask and didn't think people would know who he was in his other costume. (He did change his mind trick or treat night about minutes before it was time to go. He was originally going to be Snake Eyes and then decided to go as Storm Shadow. He is a funny kid.)
