Halloween Pre-Weekend

Ah this weekend was pretty good! M was away at drill, which is never fun, but I made sure to have our weekend jammed packed and in my mind it was pretty darn good. Having M there with us of course would have made it that much better.

Friday started off with M watching the kids while I went to work and had a professional day. That means we attend meetings, input grades, clean the classrooms and plan for the upcoming months. My day was spent with meetings and dealing with the failure list. That is never fun. Ever. That afternoon I had plans to walk with our neighbor and see if we could get her labor started. She was 4 days past her due date at that point. We were not successful, but the hour long walk we had was amazing! It was awesome to relax and just talk about everything and nothing. It did my soul good!

Saturday morning we went to my mom's to swim for the last weekend of the season. The kids loved it. She also made dinner for us. She made meatloaf and baked potatoes. It was yummy!

That night we ended up going to an event at Oscar Shearer State Park. They were having a haunted trail event. We didn't go on the haunted trail, but they did have trick-or-treating for the little ones in a separate place. Booger and Pretty Girl LOVED it and had a great time! Booger even won in the costume contest. :) How cool is that??? We haven't gotten their Halloween costumes yet, so we borrowed some dress up clothes from M's parents house and it worked out perfectly. The weather was chilly but perfect as well.

She is NOT sure about all of this

I can't believe he won in the costume contest!

Sunday was spent at my mom's for a bit, swimming one last time, then it was time to head home, get laundry done and some of Booger's homework done. We finished the night up with spaghetti and a movie.

Overall, it was a great weekend.
Now on to getting all of the things needed for the kids various Halloween/"fall festival" parties coming up on Friday.
Have you done anything Halloween related?
