I always got so excited as a kid when halloween fell on a Friday. I remember being horribly confused when we had to go to school the day after Halloween. Isn’t halloween a holiday?! It’s absurd.
So here we are. Friday & Halloween. And all is right in so many school aged kids worlds right now.
especially this ones. because hello cinderella.
We managed to have a very festive week. I haven’t been overly festive up to this point so we crammed as much orange and black hocus pocus-y goodness into the week as we possibly could.
Except for mike. Who got all grinch-y when he turned to me and muttered “your lotion smells like a public bathroom. If you find yourself in a position to buy new lotion I highly recommend it.” And now my lifelong question of what men’s rooms smell like has been answered. GRAPEFRUIT. Who knew?
Back to the fest of festivities from the week.
Monday lex came home from school and declared “mom. I need a break… And a margarita”. So a break (nap) she got followed by a very strong very virgin margarita.
Just what a Monday ordered.
We also painted pumpkins. Five pumpkins. On five different occasions. Homegirl loves herself a good craft opportunity. The playroom has officially been turned into a craft room.
Lex’s school did a fabulous Halloween parade for all the kids in her class. She’s been discussing with me for WEEKS about what everyone was going to be… She got about half of them right, the other half i’m sure was just what she thought they should be. next year she’ll have her own little person to order around and dress up.
we then hosted a rockin’ halloween party. complete with (more) pumpkin painting, bounce housing, and a ton of spooky food. i usually do a far better job at taking pictures, but alas i got a grand total of like one. pumpkins pre painting. and they turned out gloriously. and sparkley. and lex’s was about 8 shades o pink.
happy halloween to all and to all a good night!
