It was really cold outside that day so I didn’t photograph Ember in her costume (I have those pictures of her in her costume from a few weeks ago) and I didn’t even put Everett in his costume for this part of the day. He just wore his pumpkin onesie. Or wait, I think I changed him into his mummy onesie?
Brooke’s teacher thought it’d be a good idea for her to say goodbye to the class and get her things (since she’ll be homeschooled now) during the class party. Brooke was really embarrassed to come back during the party because she told me she didn’t feel like a part of the class anymore now that she was being homeschooled. I felt so bad for her and how embarrassed she was. It took at least 15 minutes for her to get the courage to join the class party! When she finally did she felt at home and had fun, thank goodness! It was actually a good way to end her school year at that school!
It was freeeeezing that night!! It was the coldest night we’d had so far and my poor kids in their piddly costumes were freezing their buns off. We went pretty far and hit up quite a lot of houses, though! The kids each had 40-50 pieces of candy in the end! Poor Everett was cold so I held him the whole time we walked so he could have my body warmth. I mean, don’t worry, he wasn’t too cold… he just wasn’t all toasty comfy or anything. But he was bundled and just fine. lol
Everett thought Halloween was way awesome! He was very aware that something really fun was happening! He loves watching his siblings get excited… he gets excited over their reactions even though he doesn’t know why! It’s the cutest! He loved grabbing and playing with the wrapped pieces of candy. He couldn’t have cared less about eating candy, he just loved the noise the wrappers made and that there were piles of candy everywhere!
Ember, always one to mommy her baby brother, kept giving Everett pieces of candy! She’d open like candy bars and stuff and give them to him. I kept telling her not to so she’d wait a minute after I’d taken it from him and then give him another. haha, little stinker. She gave him this dum dum at one point and I said, fine Ember he can eat that but that’s it. No more giving him candy! That was the last candy she gave him! He didn’t actually consume the candy she gave him… I’d take it before he had a chance. ha
Later in the evening after we got four of our kids to bed we watched Godzilla and had pizza. Ember ate pizza with us and then fell asleep on the couch before Godzilla started. It was pretty much a perfect Halloween!
