Happy "Ween"...

This year Zach was a SWAT Police Man and Kate was his Prisoner, or our little Jailbird, to make it sound sweeter. I am still in shock that I got Kate to wear this costume and manage to keep the hat on. It is so fun to have the kids' costumes coordinate or compliment each other.

Zach had a pre-school program at his school. They sang songs and had a costume parade, followed by their Halloween party. Zach's friend, Jack, dressed up as Gene Simmons, from KISS. I thought Zach was going to die! He could not keep his eyes off of him for several minutes, just trying to put it all together in his mind. You could tell he was just making the connection between the song, "I wanna rock n roll all night...and party every day!", and his friend's KISS costume. I was the room mom for their Halloween party and was glad I was there to see all the kids and their cute costumes. Zach is in the back left of all the videos by his friend Ian. The little girl he has a crush on is Lizzie, dressed as the black cat. Apparently they have already planned to get married. Zach tells me all the time that she is "beautiful". She is pretty darn cute!

We spent Halloween night with our good friends the Broadbents. Zach and Kate love Ellie and Gracee. They had so much fun trick-or-treating. The weather was perfect, and they got just enough candy to satisfy their little hearts. Kate's new saying is "Candy Now". She caught on pretty quick! At every door step she would greet them with a "Happy Ween", take several minutes to decide what candy she wanted, and then would say "Tanks" and "Bye" to everyone. She's pretty sweet. If only we could freeze her at this stage. She is making Justin baby hungry for another girl...

I haven't heard "Whirly Twirly" for years! Not since I taught it to the primary children years ago. I love the songbook it comes from--a real classic. Glad to see that it is still being used. Cute.....

Cute costumes. I love to coordinate my kids but this year I finally let Adam be what he wanted - a skeleton- so no coordinating for the girls. I can't believe the Kiss costume- especially for preschool- I can just imagine the kids staring at him;)

Oh my! I am going to dress my boys as Gene Simmons next year. Bill would think I was the greatest wife ever!! :)- Thanks for the idea!

And "Happy Ween" is my new favorite word! Thanks Kate!

The "Kiss" boy must have been from another class. He is not in the group picture or in the parade. Was he expelled for wearing that costume? LOL

He came late. I think the costume took a long time to put together. He sure made an entrance when he eventually got there though.

That KISS costume is the greatest thing I have ever seen! And I love the little jailbird costume you made. So cute and what a great idea! Just might have to steal that one in years to come! ;)
