Our Halloween week has come to a close. We are all officially fat, sick, and coming off of
sugar highs.
Thursday night, we had trunk or treat at the church - always a blast for the kids.
Friday, was our day of class parties. Crews school was decorated SO cute! His party was 3 hours long with a parade, cookie decorating, pinata, bounce house, tatoos, face painting, and carnival games. He loved it! This day, he was dressed as the grim reaper but wouldn't wear his mask or hold his staff. I never got a picture of him in full costume! He was so cute and scary!

Next, onto the big boys school. I did parties for both classes with yummy treats, halloween lei craft, and candy corn bingo. I thought the 5th graders might be too old for class parties but they loved it!

Friday night, the school had its fall festival. There was trick or treating, games, bounce house, but pretty much all we did was the cake walk - over and over and over again! We won some mini cupcakes, two brownies, and a box of cookies.
We went back and forth on Halloween costumes this year, but in the end, the boys wanted to wear scary masks!

Crew had originally begged and begged to be the grim reaper but changed his mind 10 minutes before trick or treating. He kept saying all day that he wanted to be Justin Beiber and was very upset that I wasn't making that happen for him. At last he sighed and said "fine, I will just be a basketball player." Silly boy!

Trick or Treating from the Gleeds truck.
One house in the neighborhood turned their garage and front yard into a Haunted House. It was really cool. Another house had disco music and lights. The kids stopped there for a bit to get their groove on.
