Ninja Turtles and Spidermen Everywhere!

Halloween was a lot of fun this year. I went to Caleb's Kindergarten Halloween party. Oh, excuse me...Fall Party. You can't call it Halloween in public schools anymore and kids can't dress up as witches, ghosts, goblins, or other satanic creatures. The overboard religious idiots threw a fit because their precious innocent angels were being exposed to scary hobgoblins and satan worship. So we now have Fall Parties, and after Kindergarten children can only dress up as storybook figures (in a theme together as a class). Anyway, the Kindergarteners had fun. Caleb's room mother provided a class picture from their field trip to the pumpkin patch and the kids got to decorate the frame. Then they got to decorate their own cookies with icing and sprinkles.

Halloween night we had the Petitt's over for dinner and Trick or Treating. The boys had a blast. They did really well this year. The big boys (Caleb and Adam) were dressed as Ninja Turtles and the little boys (Cody and Andrew) were Spiderman. This was not planned, but ended up being really cute! Notice the cool Skeleton Pirate Jack'O'Lantern on the porch. Of course they all came home with a ton of candy. After the trek down the street and back, the adults sat on the front porch talking and passing out candy to Trick or Treaters. The boys played and romped in the house, way outnumbering and torchering poor Max. When we went in, I found a blue mouthed Caleb vegged out on the couch watching a Garfield Halloween Special with a giant mound of empty candy wrappers between his legs. The other three were racing around the house on candy highs. I think Max sneaked a tootsie roll or two from a kid's pumpkin, because I found chewed up evidence on the floor too.

That is too funny! But I can't believe the public school rule about Halloween and no scary costumes! That is crazy!

The boys are adorable! Wish I could have been there to see them. Good job on the pumpkin. Glad you all had such a good night.
