All Hallows Eve

Our family doesn't really celebrate Halloween -- Greg is completely opposed to it, but I say "yay!!  An excuse to wear costumes!! Not like we need one, but it's fun!!"  So our compromise is to just celebrate....costume day-ish.  And get lots of candy at a local Fall Festival.

In the morning, the children participated in the Halloween/Scare Away Drugs parade at their school:

Halloween/Scare Away Drugs School Parade
Harry Potter

Halloween/Scare Away Drugs School Parade
A Ninja

A Princess Barbie Cowgirl Cat (obviously) (haha, oh my!)

Kitty (Halloween)
Billy had been a Ninja too, but decided that his "costume" (bandana) was just way too hot.

After the parade, I painted my friend Jenny's face before she left for work.

So much fun!  We decided that we should do this more often.

Since I was already painted up as a pink kitty, we decided to go do a little shopping before work.

We like to dress in costume and go out together anyway, so this wasn't really all that different for us...but people finally thought it was normal.  Since it was Halloween.  We decided not to correct anyone ("OH! Yeah, this is just the way we are.")  :-)

Later that night, we met up with my best friend Angela and her little girl, and exhausted the children at the Fall Festival.

But even more exciting....GREG IS COMING HOME TONIGHT!!  These weekend visits are a beautiful thing.   Just a little over a month until he lives with us "for real" again....
