It was fun, rushed, a little stressful for mom aka me, glad it’s over, glad the kids liked it. The end. period
Really I’m secretly glad it’s over– but I knew I’d better blog about it for my kids cuz’ when it boils down to it this is more of my journal than anything else—
First off was the costumes– Payton wanted to be toothless- sweet hey walmart, check– wait what they can’t wear masks to pretty much anything hmmmmmmm hmmmmmmm hmmmmmm an hour later walking around walmart I find a toothless beanie cap– sweet double duty- halloween and a winter hat now I just have to convince Brynley that she just really really wants to be a princess again
Toothless worked out– the boy so happy at school parade—
Brynley content at school parade dressed up in princess skirt– although she was a little confused at why to clapp when they walked by she did say to the people standing next to us though “my brother looked so cute”– ha ha ha he he
But now after seeing all the costumes she wants to be Tinkerbell– ahhh which she had been hinting at all week– “mom I want to be tinkerbell” no no you don’t want to be tinkerbell– pretty princess’s all the way-princess, princess, princess. no? Dang–Dave, Dave can you after work go over to walmart and look for a tinkerbell costume—please pretty pretty please with lots of sugar on top.
He came home with this– Brynley knew it wasn’t tinkerbell but luckily she’s still young enough we can sell her on how stinkin cool and cute this one is and I’ll even do her hair like tinkerbell’s and put leaves and ribbons in it– yay!
and Hey we didn’t slack all the way we did carve pumpkins– ” Hey Jake and Jenni so well we thought it’d be fun to hang out and carve pumpkins since we have no house though were gonna invite ourselves over to yours :)
and it was a ton of fun! Kaytee even showed up so we could steal all her pumpkin carving stuff and leave her left to sit on the floor with the crappy knife
good old yummy pumpkin guts :0
Payton had Dave carve something similar to toothless–
and well Brynley got left with my less than spectacular caving abilities and sadly we forgot tea lights 2
but hey we aren’t dumb- we know how to light those things up in other ways
Ultimately we know what it’s all about– Eating Lots of yummy Candy and ending the night hanging out with family! now those are some good times!
