Friday night, we started at a great Halloween party at the Karate school where Skyler wore her original costume, a fairy in a princess-y dress with wings. When she complained that it was uncomfortable (and frankly, very un-Skyler), I seized the opportunity and pulled together this Rosie the Riveter costume. I was surprised how into it she was. I showed her photos of the Rosie poster online and told her that Rosie was one of the first women to go to work building airplanes that everyone else thought was only a man's job.
I knew she got it when she said on Saturday: "I'm going to paint, and if I get paint on my clothes it's okay because it will just show how hard Rosie was working on those airplanes."
Saturday, we went to our friend Jody and Justin's Annual Pumpkinfest (sans costumes since it was so cold).
Next we had a Halloween party at Skyler's school.
Skyler took every opportunity to flex her muscles.
p.s. We think that some people might have thought she was dressed as a gang member.
That's three parties and it wasn't even Halloween yet.
Halloween morning I woke up for an early 9 mile run with Susan and Jen and this is what Jen's front yard looked like:
Now, for the actual Halloween night! It snowed until about 2:00 but didn't stick. But it was cold, and trick-or-treating lasted about 45 minutes, which was A-OK by us.
Ella was stuffed with pillows and had a serious penguin waddle going on, so much so that she needed a lift between houses.
I am still feeling like I can't shake the chills, so I was cupping my hot tea and trying to keep moving while the kids cruised from house to house
We're ready for bed now, and I'm still cold! Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween... can't wait to see all the photos of everyone's little ones.
