Halloween

We had a buy day on Halloween. I put Asher in his chicken costume (same as last year... it still fits!) in the morning just to make sure it fit ok...

Here he is watching a little snippet from a Thomas episode on YouTube...

After naptime, we headed over to Nate's school, where the early childhood development students were hosting a little party for the kids. They had coloring...

Musical instruments...

music and dancing, as well as story telling. I think Asher got a little pooped out there. We came home and left to do the trick or treating that was going on in our building. Asher must have been tired and/or hot, and/or hungry, because he did not enjoy the trick or treating. At the first house, he wanted to eat the candy right then, and wasn't interested in getting more. We went to a few more apartments, and he just kept trying to go into people's houses, and didn't really care about the candy, and he started getting mad, so I thought we'd better call it quits before things got ugly. He did understand things a lot better this year. He kept saying "trick or treat" and "Happy Halloween" and knows all about pumpkins. Now when he sees the bag of candy in the cupboard, he says "I want some trick or treat!"

After the trick or treating, we took a break from the costume, gave the kids baths, and then headed down to the Halloween pizza party that was being held in the community room in the basement of our building. It was great fun, and all the kids LOVED it! I was in charge of the fishing pond and made some delicious sugar cookies for it.

Sayer looked super cute as a monkey. He kept looking at me like: "what am I doing in this thing??" He is such a doll!
