Halloween Weekend!


Joel had a Halloween Parade at his school Friday morning. He dressed up as Snake Eye's from G. I. Joe. Joel's school had a huge parade around the blacktop (playground). The weather was a nice 70 degrees when the parade started and only took about an hour for all the grades and classes to show off their costumes. 

Nate and I both had to work at different times so the kids had the day to play and watch tv. They both watched a bunch of different Halloween themed movies. Joel loves the movie Gremlins! 

On the big day, I woke up not feeling very well. I pulled out Joel's legos and sat on the floor with Nate and tried to put together a couple of pieces for a car. Lego's are a lot harder when they are not just out of the package. I took nap to help me feel better and Nate headed off to work. One of the neighbor's brought us a pumpkin to carve. The three of us took turns carving the pumpkin and placing it on the patio rail.

After the carving, the kids got dressed up and ready to go trick-or-treating! Cori dressed up as a Witch, complete with broom and Joel was Snake Eyes from G. I. Joe. We went out with Sean and Taylor, who are friends next door. After all the trick-or-treating, Joel went around to the people in the complex. A guy gave him a dollar and a couple of the older ladies bought candy just because they knew Joel would be coming by. He has won the people in the complex over with his jokes, actions, and climbing tree ability.
