Halloween 2009

Now that the kids are getting a little older, especially Morgan, we have been able to have more fun with the holidays. Halloween happens to be the first holiday since Morgan started home school preschool, so I tried to come with Halloween related activity for her to do each day of the week leading up to Halloween. We did crafts, read books, watched movies and baked all with Halloween in mind. Every time we'd go to do something Morgan would ask if we were 'making Halloween'. She was so cute when she'd ask that and she enjoyed everything we did! Here is a slide show of the fun we had this Halloween:

Halloween day went a little different than what I planned this year. I didn't actually have the kids all day on Halloween! They stayed Friday night at Rich's parents' so Rich and I could go out for our anniversary. Rich ended up having to work 11 hours on Halloween and didn't pick the kids up until after 6:00 pm. They were still able to trick-or-treat at Rich's great grandmother's assisted living home earlier in the day. Then, after he picked them up, they went to Rich's family's houses. They then picked me up, so we could go to my parents' house. It was a busy day for for Rich and the kids, but I had a nice day to myself! LOL! I feel bad that I missed out on most of the fun though. One day we'll have two running vehicles again and hopefully things won't get so complicated! Despite it being different than usual, everyone had a great Halloween! :-)
