We had a good Halloween. By that I mean - I only had to dress them up twice. The first time was for festival on base. It was fun and Jayce went with a friend - and we definitely got the "I am too cool for you" vibe when we tried to say hi.
Charlotte went as a Black Crow to the festival (Grahm wore it when he was about the same age - Jayce was a Scarecrow). Then Monday at about noon we were talking and she was telling me how much candy everyone was going to give her because she was going to be so creepy. I explained to her that the Crow costume wasn't that creepy (unless you are scared of Crows ;)). She told me she needed blood on her face. I further explained that with a mask you don't get to have blood on her face. Well she decided to be a vampire instead. Grahm was Snake Eyes (from GI Joe). Jayce as Larten Crepsley from The Saga of Larten Crepsley. Picture at the bottom.
I made the kids a Halloween lunch. The boys told me everyone at school was super jealous. Maybe I will try harder next year. We had help Trick-or-Treating this year. So someone younger than Jason and I took the boys off running and they came back with a ridiculous amount of candy. I think next year I will buy smaller bags. Charlotte had a friend who went as a witch, they were super cute.
Jason is always so good to carve exactly what the kids ask for. I would probably say - too hard and stick with the traditional face.
Here is the cover of the Jayce's new favorite book.
