They made masks with sticky foam backed pieces (brilliant because that meant no scissors or glue).
And there he is with his finished mask, proving that even a knight has to go incognito once in awhile. ;)
|The child on the right is breaking Rule #2, bwuahahaha|
Another thing they did was decorate cookies. The mom in charge of that station gave them two rules.
#1 don't dump the sprinkles on your cookie.
#2 don't lick the frosting off of the utensils.
The first thing that happened is one little girl dumped 1/4 of a bottle of sprinkles on her cookie, and the boy next to my son licked the frosting when he was done decorating his cookie. My sense of humor is different than the other moms, they jumped and reprimanded and I laughed (silently, of course). Good frosting is hard to resist, you know!
|Never mind the costume selected for the big day,|
he decided last minute to instead make his own. ;)
My mom always sends him $2 on holidays (he loves getting that in the mail), and this year he got an Army vest at the Dollar Store with that money. He wore that over his coat, with a helmet he's had for awhile (I think that was a Dollar Store thing too), and he put on rain boots. It was raining, but I suspect he'd have put them on anyway. ;) He liked his own costume far more than any that could be store bought.
|That's rain behind the monkey...it rained all day and night.|
Now it's already November 2. I have such a hard time enjoying the month of Thanksgiving (as a month of thanksgiving) because my mind has already jumped forward to Christmas!! Silly, I know, but true.
If you're in the US/Canada, don't forget to set your clocks back an hour tonight.
Happy weekend everyone!
