Here's Ben and his Mr. Pirate Pumpkin Head. He was SUPER proud of it.
Trick ARRRRR Treat!
Claire decorated this pumpkin at school. She insisted that it be included with our other pumpkins. This is her Sleeping Beauty Pumpkin.
Here's her Ms. Princess Pumpkin Head
As all stay-at-home moms know, free programs for kids offered by the community are a lifesaver. The local library has a preschool story time every Tuesday which includes singing, reading, and usually some type of craft. We try to attend as often as possible and usually end up staying for quite some time enjoying the children's area stocked with puzzles, stuffed animals and computer games. I'm fairly positive that the librarians are happy to see us go, as Ben seems to break out his most obnoxious voice and behavior for the times we are there, but both kids really seem to enjoy it. This week, in honor of Halloween, the librarian read picture books about bats, and the kids made a bat craft. The kids loved making their bat hats and wore them around the house for the rest of the day. Ben really got into this one. You can even see the stripes he insisted on adding to his hat.
Ok, so they look like cats with wings. Use your imagination, people!
