Kyle and Lana’s last day of school was Thursday since Nevada Day is Nov. 30th (Friday). So the Halloween parties were held that day. Middle School kids kind of get a bum deal, they get to carve pumpkins at home then bring them in for the pumpkin carving contest and if they are lucky some parents bring in snack for them to eat. Lana’s grade had an all out party. With me being room-mom had to plan and organize said party. They first had to get dressed in their costume for the Halloween Parade. Lana was a mermaid…yes people use your imagination.
She is a very reverent child, so much so she even folded her arms during the parade. NOT! It was windy and cold that day. Then they played some games and made some crafts and ate some snacks.
Then the glorious bell rang that ended the day.
Then wicked wind had blown all the cold air away and we woke up to a beautiful day. Ronnie was off work, the kids were out of school, so we stayed in our PJs until noon. Then we went to a corn maze in Glendale. I heard that you had to pay $10 per person, but when we got there they said you can just walk through it for free. It was kind of lame, I would have been mad if we paid $40 for this.
Lana was our leader so we would not get lost and Kyle found a friend:
Then we found Ron’s car from Harry Potter, we almost lost Lana to the spider:
Then we went home with our dusty dirty shoes.
The next day was Halloween. We went to the ward Trunk or Treat. Kyle was a hobbit and we tried to make Lana’s costume look more mermaidy, but it just wasn’t happening.
Our trunk was decorated and we were parked next to the cutest “chicken rider” I have ever seen!
The kids came home with loads of candy, but sadly hardly any chocolate. Jerry, I know you’ll be disappointed to hear that there wasn’t a good pile / bad pile this year. Only once did I hear, mom my tummy hurts, so all in all it was a great Halloween.
