Halloween 2010

We had such a fun Halloween. Boogs spent Friday night with my parents so that my husband and I could go on a date and then work on the house on Saturday. Painters, a handyman, tile and carpet workers will be in and out of the house this week and next week. We had so much to do this past weekend to get ready for it. We took a break on Sunday afternoon to get some Halloween fun in with Boogs. Boogs got to help his daddy make a jack-o-lantern. He helped scoop out the pumpkin guts and then used a skewer to poke the template outline onto the pumpkin. There was one seed inside the pumpkin that had sprouted. I have never seen that before.          


Boogs wanted to be a vampire for Halloween. We sprayed his hair with black hairspray, painted his face white, drew on a black widow's peak and eyebrows, and put bright red lipstick on his lips and for blood dribbles. We went to a Halloween party thrown by one of his preschool classmates. When we walked in the backyard, most of the mom's did not recognize Boogs at all. His friends even asked who he was at first. Boogs LOVED being a vampire. After the party, about 10 of the kids went trick-or-treating together. It was so cute to watch Boogs with his friends. He told us it was a ton of fun and that he might have been bored if he had just gone with momma and daddy. We came back home to our neighborhood and Boogs got to go to a few houses. It was a very busy day for him. He went to bed 2 1/2 hours late and was super tired but had a great time. Halloween is his favorite holiday.
