Today was crazy busy and a lot of fun for me.
Both kids went to school. Ethan brought his costume for his party later in the day, and Elliott decided wearing his to school was a "no go". *Sigh. He's definitely a stubborn 3 year old.
But, me being the genius mom that I am, took my two hours by myself to figure out a more comfortable way for Elliott to wear his costume. So, I got some face paint and cut a face hole in it for him. He still looks pretty great, and a happy 3 year old makes a very happy Mommy.
We met up with our friends "Gnome Jude" and "Princess Rapunzel (Harlo)" for some toddler friendly trick-or-treating. They had their baskets loaded with candy, and they had fun. :) Success.
After picking up Ethan from school we headed directly to the Fort for some more inside, kid friendly, trick-or-treating. They had great decorations and lots of candy there. We will be back next year.
On the way home, our scary ghost passed out. Ethan and I drove around and let him sleep for a bit (you don't stop the car with this kid or the nap is over).
I decided to take the kids out for a treat. Buffalo Wild Wings for a little something to eat before the candy.
Then it was time. We joined Andrea, Chris, Harlo and Everly, and went through their neighborhood. The wind was blowing like crazy and it was pretty cold, but they toughed it out for a while and got a ton more candy.
We made one quick stop to see our friend, Erin, on the way home and she topped off their buckets. They definitely have plenty of candy and we got a lot of complements on their costumes.
I'm not letting the holidays get the best of me!
I won this round.
Bring on Thanksgiving.
