Halloween was busy for us this year. We ended up getting a ton of use out of Jack’s bat costume. First we went to the Goblin Jamboree at the Bay Area Discovery Museum where Jack rode a pony for the first time, met up with chickens and rabbits and goats at the petting zoo, got his face painted, and experienced a kiddie version of a haunted house.
When we got home I did a little decorating around the house, including trying out these decals I got from Stampin’ Up! (yes, that is self-promotion right there – I am a demonstrator) and putting together these treat bags for Jack’s daycare buddies.
My employer invited all the employee parents to bring their kids in on October 28th so Jack got to pal around with me at work for a bit. He had been begging to go to work with me instead of daycare each morning, so I was happy to finally be able to oblige him. He was very excited, but he got over it pretty quickly and by the second hour he decided to hide under my desk. He did leave me this drawing on my whiteboard (and asked me to write the names of each alien).
Halloween itself was pretty chill. All of Jack’s parents got together to take him for a spin around the block. I think Jack likes seeing the other kids in costume more than anything else – he was done with Trick-or-Treating after a block and a half or so. He then said he wanted to go home and finish his dinner. We handed out candy for a while and then Jack went to bed right on time. It was surprisingly easy…how’s that for eerie?
