The Halloween fun has begun....Leeza missed her class Halloween parade on Wednesday because I have to pick her up 15 minutes early to make Kindermusik by 12:15, SO, we came back today, a non preschool day, just in time for the parade. She wanted to wear her Cinderella dress, that was not really for Halloween, but because her mommy is a sucker for a pretty princess dress in the Disney store. :) Actually, we got the dress because we are invited to a special birthday party AT THE CASTLE at Disney in December and one MUST wear a princess dress to dine with the princesses.
Anyway, Leeza was not acting very Cinderella right during her parade. She was more along the lines of Drizella or Anstasia, the bratty stepsisters. First she wouldn't pose for the class picture, then she wouldn't walk in the parade unless I held her hand. At the end of the parade, she got mad and kicked her shoes off and tried to run back into the school. Who knows why? She is soooo moody. But then 5 seconds latear, she's happy go lucky again. Weirdo!!
We took the kids to Main Street in Safety Harbor to trick or treat at the businesses, then to the rec center for games and fun. The kids had a blast! I am so lucky to have such good friends with kids the same age there-abouts as Leeza.
Ryan was the cop, and Karen was shooting a wedding, so Karen's mom took Ryan and Kari was ONE HOT COWGIRL with her Darth Vader son Mason, who just turned 4. We took the kids last year and it was SO stinkin hot , we were all drenched with sweat. Today was MUCH cooler and less humid, it was actually quite pleasant. After we hit all the businesses for candy (and Mommy got a Landshark), we headed to the rec center for more fun, slides, bouncy house things and games. It was really a lot of fun! These kids are so lucky...they never had all this stuff when we were little.
Leeza wore her "real" halloween costume...a Pink M&M. It was made by a dear friend that I met on Ebay last year and she makes precious clothing. She also made ME a pink M&M costume to run in a Halloween Half Marathon. I don't look nearly as cute as Leeza though. :)
