Today was the big Halloween party at the Little Pals Preschool... the anxiously anticipated event FINALLY arrived today, and Connor was all ready with his "spiderman" costume. I volunteered to help out in the class room as there were several party stations and games set up including: ghost bingo, pin the fangs on the vampire, cupcake decorating, pumpkin bowling--and the like! the kids have a great time... holy cow...they could not be cuter! i am convinced 4 & 5 are the funniest of ages...and i have one of each! i have to enjoy it! As you might have guessed, i was the only mom dressed up...but if you think i am going to pass up an opportunity to wear black lipstick and a giant blingy spider ring... you don't know me very well! SO above is a shot of me and Connor; my shoes-- i opted for comfort... oh, and funny story: i bought those cute orange and black tights this morning at WalMart to make my costume complete... and like seconds before we needed to leave i pulled the tights on and they only came up to my mid-thigh! GASP! upon closer examination, they were kids tights--so i had to cut the top of the tights off. --but all good!
the party at the preschool was absolutley adorable... and perfectly planned and organized! Miss linda is so awesome! i loved being in the class room. there are 8 kids in the class, and it's just a great size. each kid gets tons of attention and they are all so cute, and happy. i mean, just look at those cute kiddos!!
For the snack, Miss Linda had a "Monster Stew" and if you can see it, she had 8 jars filled with different "monster parts" ... like eyes, finger nails, hair, fingers, bones etc. etc. (which were really cheese puffs, marshmallows, candy corns, pretzles, m&m's etc. -- each kid got to dump the jars into the pot... and then the kids got to eat the snacks. they LOVED it! such a cute idea.
then it was time for games... my favorite was the cupcake decorating- each kid got a little container of frosting and all the little toppings in a little bowl-- they could make a monster...cutie cute. Connor named his cupcake "stinky".
what a LUCKY kid connor is!! it's just such a huge blessing... i love that since Connor is my youngest, i can easily help in his class... i am excited to help in Capri's class too on Monday. so, as i said... the Candy- this is just the beginning! Let the parties begin!
