Boo! Happy Halloween!

This evening, we power-packed Halloween in! 

We started by going to Homemaker’s for their Halloween Treasure Hunt.  It was an in-door trick or treat event, and it was crazy-busy.  Thankfully I got the kiddo’s there early.  We had a great time!

Then we headed home, dropped Charlie off with Daddy, and Carter and I went to Creepy Capers, Ankeny’s Halloween party.  There were activity centers throughout the Lakeside Center, and Carter loved playing the games, getting treats, and checking out other Halloween’ers.  She was amazed by everyone’s costumes!  At one point, she couldn’t help but touch Snow White’s dress.  And she kept staring at Mr. Skeleton’s protruding bones.  It was cute!

It must be a kid thing, but Carter made it about 14 seconds before dumping her bag to scavenge through to see her loot!

We decorated a Halloween cookie … it never ceases to amaze me that in such a quick time she can be covered in whatever she’s trying to eat!

BOO!  Happy Halloween! 

A crazy week!

I don’t know for sure what my favorite holiday is, but I’m fairly sure Halloween is Carter’s favorite (it’s definitely in my top 3, for sure!).  It’s been a fun week, with costumes at dance, treats at Triad and theme days at daycare.  Tonight we’re headed out to Trick or Treat (in true Halloween-fashion, it’s been raining since last night, it’s windy and cold!  Good times …).

Wednesday @ daycare:  When you grow up day.  Her teacher, Miss Tarah, said that Carter asked Tarah to call her “Doctor Susan” all day.  Dr. Susan??!  Who’s that?

Thursday @ daycare:  Decade Day (it’s also picture day.  Let’s hope they remembered to change her clothes before professional pictures!).  She loved the boots!
