We avoided the hospital this Halloween – whew!
Halloween started with the
Halloween party Fall Festival at the Roc’s school on Friday. He missed it last year, and so I was excited (and a little nervous) to see how it would go this year. I sent in his costume, told him I would be coming to the parade, and as I hurried to the back of the school at the designated parade start time I hoped for the best. He was all smiles when he saw me and I was able to walk the parade route while holding his hand. No silly stuff, no hand stuff, no weird repetitive noises, no running away from me, just walking in a line with his class…and me. Success! His teacher told me he was full of smiles all day. The happy pirate.
*** Halloween ***
Getting ready with GC.
Trick-or-treating with the neighbor kids.
I was just about as proud of my polka-dotted pumpkin as GC was of his barfing pumpkin, but I was the most proud of the Roc who thoroughly enjoyed dressing up, ringing our neighbors doorbells, yelling trick-or-treat, and then doing it all over again at the next house. He was “so excited!” all day and the night didn’t disappoint, for any of us.
