"Sometimes you like to let the hair do the talking!" James Brown
The children don't get to wear costumes to school for Halloween (a sore subject with me). Instead they have "fall parties" and this year they let them have crazy hair day. I had a great idea for Pokey's hair, but unfortunately her hair wasn't quite long enough. Little Man's was easier but I'm kicking myself that I got his hair cut last week. We could have really had some fun.
We've been having lots of fun this week with food. Yesterday we got the jack o lantern Papa Murphy's pizza and tonight we made these scarecrow tostadas. The kids got to design their own and they seemed to be a hit.
After a long day I took Pokey's hair out so she could shower and this was the result. This will totally be her crazy hair for next year.In other news:
Little Man had his last soccer practice of the season tonight and the dads played against the boys. I think the dads won 6-5. It started at 5:30 and was already dark, so by 6:30 it was pitch black. It was seriously windy and cold. Pokey and I watched most of it from the car and after about 6 PM it was just too dark to see. I think the boys had fun though. Little Man scored 2 goals and had 1 assist.
We also watched "Monsters vs Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space" with the kids tonight. I was anxious to watch something else later with Haldan. Scary movies are my absolute favorite! Not the gorey disgusting kind, but the good old fashioned scary kind. Unfortunately Haldan's a party pooper and not a lover of scary movies. Luckily I have one kid that likes Goosebumps. Maybe I have a movie watching companion in the making.
