(Did you know there is a new Strawberry Shortcake show on HUB? It’s pretty darling.)
The other day we found a bluebird in our yard, who flew away as soon as we spotted him. The boys decided that the violin would lure him back. It did not work. (This picture is only cute because YOU CANNOT HEAR IT.)
We are trying to incorporate a little meditation/strong sitting into our daily routine. It’s pretty cute.
The face-painting was supposed to be of the kid variety (flowers, spiderman, etc) but India sat down and asked the lady to give her “grown-up makeup”. If this child ever saw an episode of Toddlers and Tiaras, life as we know it would be over.
We had the kids paint their pumpkins this year, since having them carve with sharp instruments seemed like a safety concern. And also because the insides of pumpkins make me want to BARF.
No comment on this mother’s choice of Halloween costume for a 9am party for four and five-year-olds. Ahem.
But hey. The real costumes were kept clean for the main event.
Since my kids were little, I've always told them that the Halloween tradition is that you collect candy from trick-or-treating and then put it in a bowl for other kids who come by. I figured they were too old to pull that off anymore, but when they got back to the house they pulled out a few candies and then dumped their loot in the bowl for me to pass out. We ended Halloween with less candy than we started with. Suckas!! (I mean, what sweet, generous children. Of course.)
