the aftermath of hallows eve
shaggy & scooby
well, halloween is over, the sugar induced coma should hit any moment now...
we all were up during the wee hours of hallows eve. i spent way too much time making costumes and had absolutely nothing ready for church on sunday morning. at midnight, i was working on a handout for the parents about collecting vitamins for an orphanage in russia we support while jack and josiah found my "personal items".
josiah was pretending the tampons were sticks of dynamite and jack thought the pantyliners were the best stickers ever. hot wheel cars and tampons were flying through the air while jack sorted his pretty pink "stickers".
this is after a week of making costumes, it was one of those projects that seems simple enough until you are actually doing it.
josiah tried on his green shaggy shirt.
"mom, i think this is too big. i'll just be a fireman..."
and then there's jack who earlier had a serious tantrum over the fact that he could not wear his scooby-doo collar because the glue was drying but now wants nothing to do with it. and the tail, jorge said it was too long so i cut it down and then jack was deeply disturbed that there was something hanging off of the back of him...this was his protest in the picture above.
and then somehow the magic of halloween hits. we arrived at the family festival at the church where i work. jack instantly forgot his costume even existed and josiah was mesmerized by the huge blow up slide. they played silly carnival games, ate cold hot dogs and got glow-in-the-dark necklaces that were way too big. they had no interest in entering the costume contest which is really just a parent award anyway. they had a glorious time.
so now we are home in our incredibly messy house thanking our lucky stars for the extra hour of sleep tomorrow morning as we have yet to adjust to the time change.
we love you halloween...
