|This year's pumpkin|
Saturday, November 3, 2012
We had a great time celebrating Halloween. The octopus costume was a success! Little L wore it three times-to a party at her aunt and uncle's house, a party with my moms group, and at the zoo with her friends at the Mommy and Me class. The extra tentacles made moving a little more difficult but they were also fun to chew on. The munchkin enjoyed helping her dad carve our pumpkin while "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" was on. L and I met her grandparents and cousin at a pumpkin patch on Halloween afternoon. She liked the hayrack ride, trying to eat the hay, and petting a pony. No trick or treating this year; we don't need the candy in the house. We also had an All Saints Day trip to the Arboretum and a beautiful Mass that night at my old parish.
