Today the kids got to wear their costumes to school and parade around the older kids classrooms showing off their wears! Xavier said they got to play Bingo, they danced, and they even did the limbo!!! His knapsack was full of goodies like pencils, notebooks, a yo-yo, toys, all Halloween related.. So needless to say, he had a blast. He came out of class so happy. I love seeing him so happy. It warms the cockles of my heart - LAUGH.
Here are a few pics of our little guys at school:

Marcus as Harry Potter and Xavier as Spiderman (underneath the coat!!), and Elisa as a little lamb (she would not put her hat on with the ears!!).
Elisa lining up for school like she sees the kids do every day - all ready and rearing to go to school. She is so entertaining!

My little lamb with her funny hair. The costume feet made her slip on the hardwood floor in our living room and she took a tumble. You can see the bump on her forhead next to the scar from when she fell and hit her noggen on the verandah railing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Poor baby girl lamb!!

Mrs. Shearham, who is always dressed up in leather and funky clothes. Today she added the orange and black stockings, and some spray paint in her hair. She is such a hoot. Love love love those 4 inch heels (one of her pairs that she wears everyday!! imagine that!)

This is Mr. Murphy, who holds the door open for the kids every morning. The goofball scared the heck out of Chloe who started crying and wanted to go home! Soooo funny!!

There was also a Barbie witch all dressed up in glittery pink, and a scary witch with orange (sexy) fishnet stockings. Man oh man. I love Halloween. It is such a ball of fun in the school yard. There was energy in the air, with the excitement and anticipation of trick or treating. Boy do I ever remember those days.

Unfortunately I do not have any photos of our trick or treating days with my brothers and sister. So, I am so happy to be able to do this for Xavier and Elisa. It is such an important and memorable part of their growing up. I want them always to remember the fun and joy and of course the spookyness of Halloween. BOO!

Have a fun and safe Halloween!
