Halloween 2018

We had a fun Halloween season this year. We had a couple different activities on the calendar. Our first Halloween event was a Fall Festival at the church where Cora used to go to school. She was excited to be at her old school and see some people she knows. We enjoyed a bouncy house, crafts, food, face painting, a rainy hayride, and treats.

The following day, Cora had her African dance class performance (more on that another day) and her first book club meeting. The mom running the book club had all kinds of fun Halloween books and treats for the girls. Cora loved meeting new friends and trying out something we don't normally do.
The day before Halloween, I realized we hadn't carved our pumpkin. I brought our pumpkin inside and let Cora draw what she wanted me to carve. No surprise, she drew a cat. Cora helped clear out the pumpkin and I carved what I could.

On Halloween, Cora woke up and declared "Today is going to be the best day ever!" She had a parade and party at school. When Cora got home, I quickly realized we had two hours of nothing to do until Trick-or-Treat time. Ben was working and I didn't plan on having dinner until after Trick-or-Treating. We took some pictures, had a dance party, snacked on the porch, and played some games...

Eventually it was Trick-or-Treat time and we started at 6 on the dot. We stopped by to pick up some of our neighbor friends and headed out. Ida was a bit tired so she ended up riding in the backpack and napping most of the evening. We arrived at the furthest point from our home when it started pouring rain, but we chose to enjoy ourselves instead of whining. We were all completely soaked by the time we got home. We spent the rest of the night eating dinner and taste-testing all the candy. It was kind of an exhausting night/week, but we had the best time!
