At last we were allowed to put on our Halloween costumes that have been in Mum's closet for weeks.

At last I was finally allowed to wear my Elsa Halloween costume that has been in a not-so-secret spot in Mum’s closet for weeks.

Rafa was having difficulty throwing webs whilst holding onto the spiderman suit tag in one hand and his mask in the other.

Rafa was having difficulty throwing webs even in his Spider-get-up because he didn’t want to let go of the spiderman suit tag and mask.

A quick trip to Target...

A bit of a run around outside on the merry-go-round, playground and bounce house and Elsa and Spidey were pink cheeked and ready for water and a rest.

Halloween House tour part two: in the car

October 22, 2014

Armed with a list of addresses suggested by “The Ladies of Cross Creek” we jumped in the car for part two of our Halloween House tour.

The spider house gets more added to it each day so it's another house that we've visited a few times.

We visited the spider house a few weeks ago but that was before the infestation got this out of hand (early October there was just a little family of spiders by the sidewalk but they must have got the word out that there’s a party going on and the house has gotten progressively inundated with the spider’s friends and family as Halloween approaches).

The rats are new since last time we were here.  Ewwww!

We saw met some nice scarecrow families.

We met a nice scarecrow family around the corner, they were keeping their distance from those spiders!

 

And a witch that looked a little ill.

This witch looked a little ill.  We wondered what she’d eaten to be that green.

There were lots of pumpkins, ghosts, ghouls, skeletons and spiders.

We checked with Mum that the giant spider wasn't real so it couldn't really bite us.  We had fun pretending though!

Boo!

As it got darker the displays with lights looked awesome.

We’ve been booed!

It was just about bedtime last night when the door bell rang.  There was no one at the door but then we realised, we'd been BOOED!

It was just about bedtime last night when the door bell rang.  There wasn’t a soul in sight, but we spotted a basket of goodies on our doorstep!

Inside we inspected the contents.  It turns out, we'd been BOOED!

Whilst we indulged.

We helped ourselves to candy.

Whilst Mum read the note so we knew what to do.

So tonight, we put our "we've been BOOed" sign up on the door.

Waited until it was dark and gave Papi a big bucket of Halloween treats to BOO a neighbour.  Papi had to run fast to be able to ring the bell and go!

And waited until it was dark to give Papi a big bucket of Halloween treats to on BOO an unsuspecting neighbour (he runs the fastest so we figured he was the least likely to be caught mid-mission).  A big THANK YOU to our wonderful community, BOOing is so much fun – both ways!

Share day with my new favourite thing

October 16, 2014
I shared my new heart shaped hair brush with my friends at school for share circle today.  It has come with me to school every day this week but normally I have to leave it in the car.
