Halloween 2007

November 2, 2007

We had a great Halloween this year! My parents are here so that made it even more fun. Noah had fun picking out the perfect pumpkin. He didn't enjoy cleaning the out the seeds, but Camille had fun doing that. I tried my hand at carving...not easy to do with a big knife, a thick pumpkin, and two active children hopping around. Just as I was finishing and feeling like I had done a pretty bad job (crooked mouth, no nose, etc), both kids starting cheering and saying "good job, mama! (Camille) and "Awesome" (Noah). That was my favorite Halloween moment and a good reminder that things don't have to be perfect to be good.

We had a couple of scary swamp monsters handing out treats
Noah was a scary farmer (thanks to his glow in the dark skeleton shirt that he refuses to take off). He wore a pair of Adam's overalls from when he was 4 years old. Camille was supposed to be a chicken. My mom spent time hand sewing white feathers to a onesie and minutes after Mei-Mei put the costume on she started screaming "don't like it!" and started pulling off feathers....looked like we had sacrificed a chicken in our living room! The only thing she wanted to wear was the tiara Nana made for her. Jonathan also joined in the trick-or-treating fun, but he wasn't too crazy about the wagon ride.

What a fun looking bunch. Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year and cute monkeys in costumes is why!
Have fun battling the sugar high the next few weeks. Maybe we can form a support group. :-)
