SO glad that all our Halloween festivities are finally over. It all culminated with our annual neighborhood parade and post-party earlier this afternoon. I’m not sure if I’ve unconsciously distanced myself from the neighborhood, but I really just didn’t enjoy myself. I’m tired of the never-ending questions about how the sale of our house is going so I tended to just play with the kids instead of mingling with the parents.
Baby made such a sticky mess of her Pooh costume on Friday (photos below), that I had to find another costume for her, for the parade. I can’t just throw the Pooh costume in the washer; I have to wash it by hand and there just wasn’t time for all that.
Oh! And she had her first lollipop ever that night. I couldn’t pry it out of her hands, she was holding it so tight!
Maya readily agreed to go back home after only an hour. She was more than happy with the 3 buckets of candy that she had collected. Since the night was still young, we capped it off with the Halloween episode of Dora. There was only one complaint – “Mommy, Dora wore that same costume LAST year!”
