Halloween 2009

We went to the YMCA yesterday for a halloween party, and the kids loved it. It was really well done, and included a potions station (slurpees), ghost bowling, pumpkin golf, a batty craft, and a bunch more.

We came home, ate dinner, and then got ready to head out Trick or Treating. We b-lined it to my mom and dad's, hitting way less houses than last year, but coming home with tons more candy.

Today we did up their candy portioning calenders, with a slight improvement on last year - they are up on the wall, and out of reach. Next year I might plan ahead, and get slightly bigger cups, but since I had dixie cups on hand, that is what we used. I also played with a few other ideas of how to deal with the candy overload, but Jordan was too excited to claim all of the left over candy.Isn't my little 'pumpkin' soo cute? I am sure she loved her first halloween.

Awww, she's SO cute. I LOVE the candy dividers. I spaced it again this year I WILL remember. They are ingenious.

Candy calenders? Wow! Now that is an enrichment idea (well, "RS Activity" idea, I guess) that needs to get done!
