The school-wide Halloween parade has got to be my favorite part of Halloween (the parade is only slightly ahead of the post-trick-or-treating candy tasting). This year, AJ decided at the last minute that he no longer wanted to be the werewolf and would rather dress in his size 2T-3T knight costume instead. Luckily, I was able to sneak his werewolf costume in his backpack and avoided a tantrum at school when he found it in place of the knight costume.
Reese refused to listen to me when I said that she would be cold in her fairy costume without tights and a leotard underneath. She insisted that they would ruin the “look.”
Twizzler, my anti-costume child, surprised us all by sticking a cape in his bag and happily wearing his grim reaper/dementor/dead dude costume for the parade.
Me? I wore my dad’s old coon skin cap (which a kindergartener mistook for squirrel) and a camera around me neck. And I enjoyed the best treats from everyone’s class Halloween parties. Yes, that is the true reason why I love the school Halloween celebration so much.
Have you heard? SITS is giving away a Canon Rebel T2i camera. I’m linking this post to the contest!
