Halloween Action

Halloween is in full swing at our house. Although Kendall is a bit confused -- we put up our decorations because "it's Halloween" but we are not going trick-or-treating today because "it's not Halloween yet". So, here is what we are doing to pass the time until the Halloween Halloween is here.

Kendall first came up to me and said, "Mom, I know how to make a ghost." So naturally I asked her to show me.

She's also been having fun with Play-Dough. We've been making lots of ghosts and jack-o-lanterns.














Morgan was given an assignment to help Clifford decide what to be for Halloween. All she was given was an outline of Clifford on an 11 x 17 piece of white card stock. What else would he want to be but Elphaba? Doesn't everybody?

Best looking ghosts and jack-o-lanterns I've seen in a long long time and I applaud you for your patience in getting out all that play-doh and all the "tools", knowing the huge mess it makes. You could be in the running for "Mother of the Year", it makes that big of a mess. Haven't seen a better looking Elphaba in a long long time, either. Looks like Clifford's future is unlimited!!

1. What a wonderful ghost. Spooky.
2. I want to eat those play-doh cookies.
3. I laughed forever at the broom stick that Clifford/Elphaba is riding.

Mom! I am just so proud of you! You learned to post from "mom" instead of "anonymous"! I had to read it twice to make sure it was from you!

yeah... i taught her how. :) j/k - but I did tutor her over the phone - hee hee! Oh my gosh, the Elphaba - there are no words. And Cheri made me notice the broom and I loved it 10 times more! I agree with mom... mother of the year for the play-doh thing. Ick. You rock! I don't have sound to hear Kendall, but nevertheless, she's the cutest!!!
