I don't know about you, but around here - the weekend was a giggly blur.
I can't even rememember what we did on Friday - but Saturday we had soccer, Saturday cleaning and then Wendy had some friends over for a birthday slash let's go downtown to the Halloween event - event. The weather while crappy all week, turned out perfectly for our outing. We couldn't have ordered anything better. There were thousands of people who came out to enjoy the weather with us.
I had the girls on one hand, and my little boys on the other. My husband didn't get home from work until after 8, so he just missed all the fun.
All the fun included creatively scipted gravestones.....
....the headless horseman..... (I had wanted to run the Headless Horseman 5K, but ended up not signing up when I had one babysitter out of town, and a working husband) (and a gaggle of giggling girls for the night)
....some tall Halloween creature things, I assume they entered the contest. Always lots of cool costumes.
....cool grandma's out enjoying quality time and spooking with their grandkids....
This picture makes my heart swell up. Markie is not fond of crowd situations. He was leaning on Brian's shoulder for support. He passed on the candy bowl more than a few times because he couldn't stand the bowl rush crowds.
After we covered the entire event, we headed home for birthday cake and a giggling sleepover.
This lot likes to play the dare game when they open gifts. They spin the bottle to find out whose turn it is, then that person has to dare Wendy something in order for her to be able to open the gift.
- Kiss the dog 15x
- Open the present with only your teeth
- Open the present with one foot and one finger
- Open the present while standing on your head
Then they got to Mark. Wendy: what's my dare, Markie? Mark: Open the present with your BOOTY!!
I didn't see that one coming.
Nearly rose the roof with those giggles.
The giggling lasted until just past midnight
The girls weren't quite as perky Sunday morning when we woke them up for Sunday school.
All in all, a good time. A few friends and I were discussing the city event overall while a lot of fun, is easier if you have kids of just one age grouping. If you have big kids and little kids, it's very hard to keep an eye on them all for how crowded it is.
On Sunday we enjoyed having my husband home for the day - went church, visiting, relaxed.
Today it's baking, laundry, assignments, and two Halloween parties tonight.
