More Halloween Fun!

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE holidays! Admittedly I listen to Christmas music WAY before the world thinks it is acceptable, I use corresponding napkins for every holiday, even St. Patrick's Day and I completely rearrange my decor to accent the festivities, taking down family pictures and replacing them with glowing spiders and misting pumpkins! And I love it! I love it even more that my kids appreciate it now. They get so excited with me and make it all worth it! Last night our FHE was "Halloween" themed. We carved our pumpkin, and made a really cool witch dinner! I often look at other moms and think, "how do they come up with such fun ideas for their kids and where do they find the time to be such supermoms?" Well, last night, for one second, I felt like a supermom! Of course, I woke up this morning to the mess from last night that I didn't have the energy to clean and felt more normal; less super! Anyway, it was a fun night! We go Trick or Treating tonight. In Iowa we celebrate Halloween the night before! Weird, but we are excited.

For soome reason the formatting is being weird, so I will quickly explain the following pics. The first two are carving the pumpkin, Hallie with an interesting untensil, but whatever! And the third picture is the finished product, a glowing cat! Next is our witch dinner, made with meatloaf, mashed potatoes and squash. And the last was from the "Trunk or Treat" We went as the Wizard of Oz. Hallie was quick to remind everyone that she was not a princess, but was Glinda, the nice witch, and mom is the mean witch . Mag was Dorothy, the center of the whole theme, and too interested in her candy to even look up! Dad was quite possibly the world's largest munchkin! We thouight it was pretty funny!

Hi Katie! I was so excited to see you post a comment on my page! Its great to see your little family and hear about your life as a super-mom. I totally feel how you do--how do these ladies do it? They must sacrifice naps and I cannot :) Anyway, we are in Vegas. Just moved here in May from Tucson AZ where we were for the last 5 years. Parker is doing his residency in general surgery. Our Halloween was a much different experience, typical of our town. Looks so beautiful where you live! Fun to see your exciting month of activities. Keep in touch!
