Ghost & Grim Reaper

This year for Halloween Evan went as  Ghost.  Ryan went as the Grim Reaper.  We didn't intend for it to be a theme but I guess it kind of was!   We had lots of Halloween festitivites to participate in this year.  It was also Red Ribbon Week and Ryan had a major field trip.  Whew!  I'm so glad this week is over.  And hooray for the end of daylight savings time!  

 The kids are strictly not allowed to wear masks to school and both boys chose a costume with a mask.  So.. before we purchased the costumes, we had to find a way that they'd work without the costumes as well as with them.  For Evan, we decided face paint would be best.

 Halloween Carnival at Church.

 Getting ready for school on Friday.  For Ryan, we bought a Grim Reaper whose mask could be removed.  Then, to protect his costume from the self-eating velcro, we put a piece of fuzzy velcro down- it seemed to work okay.

5th Graders lined up to do their Thriller Dance.  Every year the Tech coach teaches the fifth graders (used to be the sixth graders when they still went to Elementary) the Thriller Dance.  
It MIGHT have been on my list of reasons Ryan needed to attend this school.  

 After the Thriller performance, I helped Evan's class with their Halloween Party.  I did a mummy wrap game.  The kids thought that was a lot of fun.

After school we went to Daddy's office to go trick-or-treating.  The boys got a surprisingly large amount of candy after hitting only 2 floors of the 20 story building.  

When Halloween evening finally rolled around, we dawned our costumes one last time and went trick-or-treating.  The kids had a lot of fun and got TONS of candy.  But our neighborhood was a litlre bit quiet.  I was surprised that with the weather being so nice that we didn't see more people out!  

One house in our neighborhood had a weeping angel in the front yard. We couldn't tell if she was fake or real.  So we went closer to have a better look.  She was real!  So I asked her if we could pose for a picture- this one's for you, Aunt Katie!
