Happy Halloween

Yes I know that it’s late but hey, that’s me.

We had a great Halloween. We both dressed up as fairies with wings and wands. Only when we left school to go trick-or-treating we couldn’t find either one. Oh well off we go. We went with a couple of friends from school J with her mom S, R with his mom R, and N with his mom M. We were a cute little group of four. We walked the entire Vista, which is about a mile to walk both sides of the street, and even made an appearance at the Manson at the end of the street. Afterwards we went back the school so I could do my part at the party. I had a bucket ‘o worms” for the kids to put their hands in for a prize. I didn’t think the older kids would like it but there was one girl that get mad at her mom because she didn’t get her turn, but only a little mad. I felt bad for her. I didn’t think it would be that big of a hit but just goes to show that it’s the little things that help.

I’m not one for strict bedtimes but seeing as how Savie didn’t take a nap that day and it was almost 9pm she needed to go home. Hubby came and got her and that was the end of that. I thought there would be more of a fight from her because she’s leaving the party early but she was OK with it. When I got home hubby said that she was fine with not being able to eat any of her candy. I told her before we even started trick-or-treating that she wouldn’t get to eat any of it that night, maybe the next day but not that night. There were a couple of kids at the party that were having a crying fit because they couldn’t have any more candy.

I think that’s one of the problems that some parents have. They don’t tell their kids beforehand, what is going to happen. I’ve noticed that when I do this with her things go a lot better then when I don’t say anything to her. I have to remember to do that more often.

How was your Halloween?
