Sorry the Halloween pictures are a smidge late! Claire asked to go as Rapunzel this year, so we obliged, complete with super long wig and chameleon buddy Pascal (part of the movie, for those of you who haven’t seen it!)
The festivities kicked off last weekend at the Worthington Rec Center Halloween party, where we got to play games, learn the Thriller dance and meet a princes. Busy night, and Claire got over her fear of the big people in costumes pretty fast (especially when she realized that she won little candy and prizes for playing games!)
Then it was the annual pumpkin carving party at Aunt Micheale and Uncle Keith’s house! I brought some washable poster paints for the little ones this year, since they can’t carve, obviously, and Brian or I usually end up carving some elaborate template for two hours. Claire had a blast painting her pumpkin, and as you can tell, has a soft spot for her cousin Luke 🙂
Claire also made some cute pumpkin art at school that we had to show off!
And of course, trick or treat. We started out as Rapunzel, but it was raining, some after a few houses and the neighborhood party, she came home, warmed up, and we let her change into one of her dress up costumes to hit a few more houses of our immediate neighbors.
All in all, a great Halloween! I’ll be checking back in later this week with some fall snapshots too.
Oh, and psst – guess what we’ve been working on this weekend?! Dining room progress update (flooring!) is on deck.
