what a fun halloween we had this year. i was super worried that we were going to have to miss it because i would be too sick to take them but i felt much better today. no fever. besides how could i miss it? the kids were so excited that they were saying "yay, it's halloween" when they woke up this morning. miles had to work so it was just me and the kids.
they all got dressed up and i took them to orange county. mason was indiana jones, dahlia was a princess, and connor was tigger from winnie the pooh. i didn't make any of their costumes this year. there has just been too much going on. we went to the friends church fair with christina and zena. there we met up with jen, ray, bodhi, and kira. zena was a gypsy, bodhi was a pirate, and baby kira was winnie the pooh. they had so much fun. we got the kids wrist bands this year to ride the rides. last year they were too little for most of them. they enjoyed the obstacle courses and playing all the games for candy prizes.
connor is too young for most of the activities and as usual my kids wanted to leave the fair and go to the church playground. i was happy to take them to the playground. we were the only people there and the kids seemed to have more fun on the playset. it was much easier for me to watch them.
after the fair we went to our friend angela's house for trick-or-treating. we walked all around her neighborhood. they got so much candy. it was really crazy. then we went back to angela's house for some homemade apple crumble and cookies. sugar sugar sugar. it was a long day but i am so happy that i took them out. they had a great day.
now that everyone is asleep it is time for miles and i to watch the walking dead. happy halloween.
