The boys are looking forward to Halloween with great excitement. We had fun picking out pumpkins, scraping out pumpkins and carving pumpkins. We love Halloween, and I feel a little sad that the schools here can't/don't celebrate. They had a wear orange and black day, but it just doesn't seem the same. I know that it's important to be respectful of other cultures in our public schools, but at the same time, I miss the way we used to go all out when we were kids.
Charlie is a great, patient dog with Aidan, and I'm so glad. Now, I wish I could socialize Charlie with other dogs. That part of adopting an older dog is a little frustrating as we don't think he was socialized with other dogs at all.
On a different note, we are having a group of preschoolers/toddlers over to the house tomorrow for a Halloween storytime. I made haunted houses with a scroll of Halloween creatures that move through the door while we do a poem. I"m happy with how they turned out.
The poem, which Aidan LOVES goes like this:
Tip toe, tip toe, tip toe, tip toe.
Who's that knocking at my door.
Could it be a __________ (ghost, mummy, witch, monster, black cat, etc.)?
Run, run, run. Run, run, run.
I don't know the author of this little poem to give them credit. I heard it at Liam's old preschool. Ihave to catch Aidan doing this on video - his little scream is hilarious.
Take care everyone, and happy Halloween when the time comes!
