Cassidy was excited to dress up as Belle in a REAL Belle dress. Thank you Beema, for Cassidy's REAL Belle dress. It was absolute perfection!
The dress went on first thing in the morning and didn't come off all day.
First up was the preschool class party. No duplicate costumes and a whole lot of cuteness!
Cassidy "talked to" me on the way to school as she knew I was coming in for the party and she instructed me "not to sing, not to dance, not to clap" at song time. What?! I'm already embarassing you, kid? When song time came, I stood there and chatted with some other moms. Cassidy took that moment to REMIND ME in front of the whole class that I was not to sing or clap or dance. We discussed that later. #TooFarGirly
Overall, it was so fun to see Cassidy in her school routine! She's very obedient and listens to directions well!
She loves projects! A LOT!
And has been talking about this doll house for several weeks. She showed it to me before I left!
After a couple hour break from fun, we went over to Troy's school, brought him his costume and watched him in the Storybook Parade outside his school. Part of me leading up to this event was like "WHY do we have another thing to add to the Halloween frenzy!?" And then once it actually began, I melted into a pile of Mommy and fell in love with my kid and this town even more. Sigh. Such is life.
Afterwards, we returned to the classroom for Troy's class party. Cass, as always, was delighted to be included in the snack and crafts.
Fast forward a couple of hours and through my Body Pump class, and we were back home to trick or treat. We had this giraffe head passed along to us from my brother and well, let's just say it added a whole new layer of fun to Halloween AKA Mike's new favorite holiday.
We trick or treated around the neighborhood with neighbor Josh before Troy met up with friends Nick and Cal.
Not knowing what was happening back at our house, we arrived to this creepy scene. Giraffe on porch with candy. Poor kids of the neighborhood LOL. I couldn't stop laughing.
Troy wrote this during a writing exercise on Halloween at school. "I like my Halloween costume. I will wear a T Rex costume. It is scary."
And he is journaling on his own quite a bit before bed these days, too. This is what he wrote while I put Cass to bed that night. "Today I got candy. LOTS of it. It was Halloween."
