The Halloween Party!

We had a great day today!  We did our work first and then we did some fun activities after lunch.  This teacher waited too long to buy a pumpkin, so thankfully the 1st grade teacher found us one.  It was small, but better than nothing.  I talked all about pumpkins and then I carved it into a baby jack-o-lantern.  It will be on my porch when they come trick-or-treating at my house.

After I read a few good books, the kids got into their costumes and all of the K-4 students piled into the bus.  We went out to the nursing home for a costume parade.  The residents gave them candy and enjoyed seeing the children.  When we returned we paraded through the 5th-8th grade rooms.  

Then it was time to party!  The mom's on the Halloween committee did a fantastic job!  The party was greatt!  A funny comment was heard as the kids were very quietly eating their lunch.  One boy said, "Why are you all staring at us?"  Pretty funny!  He was right.  We were staring at them.  They are just so cute!

Pumpkin carving time!

Here is the baby!

Trick-or-treating at the nursing home was a nice time.

A feast for the kids!  Wow!  They felt pretty special!

Bowling down rolls of toilet paper was great fun!

The beautiful girls!

Dressing up as something else is great fun for the kids!

The kids were very good at the party...

...maybe it was because there was a cop present!

There were smiles all around!

Here they are eating their lunch.  It was a great day!

  1. Looks like you kids had a wonderful party! The table of goodies was decorated so beautifully; great job, Moms. Do you know how happy you made the residents of the nursing home when you came to see them? I'll just bet they were smiling for the rest of the day.
