We went to two pre-Halloween parties…one at Calhoun Square and one at the high school where I teach at.
This one is of Liam at the Southwest Community Education Halloween Party. There was a puppet show, and Liam walked to the very front of the room and just stood quietly and watched. Very unlike Liam…he usually hangs around in the back. He looked so funny up there all by himself while the other 30 or so people sat in desks and on the floor to watch.
On Halloween night, right after dinner, Helena designed how she wanted her pumpkin on a piece of paper, and then dad carved it. Helena is quite proud, as you can see. We only could paint them earlier, because the squirrels get to them very quickly, as we found out last year with Libby and Dori’s classic pumpkin. You can see Helena’s paint job on the pumpkin.
After getting in trouble for biting Liam, dad took Liam out trick or treating by himself for a bit. I came back to get Helena after she served her time. She went from miserable to very happy pretty quickly.
