Halloween 2014

Published by admin at 3:05 pm under Clayton,Sophia

Just like every year, the excitement for Halloween started in late September. We began talking about costumes for this year and how we hoped the weather would cooperate – since last year it rained and we barely had a 30 minute window to go out. Clay decided to be Batman, a costume he’d received for his birthday, and Sophie settled on a mermaid.

The weather predictions called for cold temps on the 31st so we did a dry run the weekend before, when it was sunny and the kiddos loved getting all dressed up and posing for the camera.

We woke up to snow flurries on Halloween morning — luckily there were parades planned at school for both kiddos so we sent them off with their costumes in their backpacks and hoped that somehow, the weather would improve before the afternoon. And it did!! We ended up with a chilly 45 degrees, but after a bit of layering under the costumes, we spent an hour outside, in the sunshine, and having a fun time. The kids ran into several of their school friends and filled their candy buckets in no time. It was a great Halloween and the sugar rush is still going strong:)
