Everyone was Elsa for Halloween this year.  Everyone.  Yup that's right.  Oh well, actually Matthew wasn't, despite the fact that Elizabeth lobbied very hard.   Matthew instead opted to be a monkey.  Strangely appropriate.  Our Elsa went around with Matthew on our street and then took off to be with the cool kids (Elsa/Adi and her not Elsa cousin - shock, horror) while her brother got put to bed.  By the time she came home in the wee hours of the night her candy bag was overflowing and she was exhausted.  Apparently being cool is tough work.


Both Mom and Dad dressed up for the neighbourhood trick or treating - the kids insisted. Mom was a wizard. Dad was a giraffe.



   



Elizabeth got to dress up for skating this week. She was a "Bunaffe" (Or was that a "girunny"?)



   



Elizabeth got to carve her own pumpkin this year. She's still not a fan of pumpkin guts, but at least she helped remove them this year! Matthew? Not so much... But he did enjoy drawing and especially popping things into the pumpkin after it was carved.


   



Voting day is always an opportunity to reinforce the concept of civic duty with our children...


   



It was a party day today. Church in the morning and then I took the kids to the Halloween party at the Glebe Community Center just before we headed to Chris and Yukiko's for Grandma J's birthday party.


Elizabeth described the Halloween party: "We had to sword sword sword and I DID IT! Matthew kind of did it. I was better at most of the activities but they gave Matthew his candy anyway. We made a cookie. Afterwards we got to go in the bouncy castle. Matthew didn't want to and he was too little. I got to go in and bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce." There was a "haunted house" that we wandered through (but opted for the tame little kids version which mostly consisted of bubbles and inflated animals). The kids enjoyed themselves greatly.


Grandma's birthday party was pretty exciting too - Grandma! Cousins! Cake! Candles! On the way home, Elizabeth demanded to know who had the next birthday and wondered how many days she had to wait for the party. "I AM invited, right Momma?"
