Halloween 2008; Part deux
I thought I would add some pictures from Halloween as there seems to be a bit of trouble with viewing the scrap blog. We missed celebrating Halloween in San Diego very, very much for many reasons. One, we missed our good friends' big Halloween/Birthday bash in Chula Vista---something I look forward to all year. Happy Birthday Tristan (6 years old!), and Happy Birthday Emma (the big 3!). We miss you and hope you had a great party. Secondly, it rained (and I mean poured) from Thursday until yesterday. Thirdly, we missed out on our fabulous Moms' group Halloween party---which looked wickedly fun and very well-attended.
We stayed home and greeted trick-or-treaters (and had quite a few), dressed up, and ate some (quantity unspecified) candy. I had to take my wig and hat off because Charlie was freaking out and just beside himself (what happened to my Mama?). Kingsley was exactly the same way 2 years ago. Oh well, maybe in a couple of years Halloween will be really fun again, with dry weather, and the boys will WANT to dress up and won't care if I do.
Oh, and Kingsley was a pirate, although a very last-minute, find-what-you-can-around-the-house costume (sometimes those are the best though, no?). We went shopping a couple of times in the past few weeks and every time I tried to buy a costume, he would have a spectacular (spook-tacular?) two-year old tantrum, even throwing the costume out of the cart if I tried to put it in (that was the Fireman costume, which I thought he would *love*, since he's so into firetrucks and firemen right now). If we would have gone trick-or-treating, I was going to have him go as himself. Nothing scarier than a two-year old having a fit, I think.
