The day of the fall party, the kids were asked to dress up as Bible characters. Since Hubby had already jumped on the Halloween costume shopping one Saturday while I was working, we had to come up with another costume. A website called Costume Supercenter came to the rescue and I avoided making a costume from scratch. Little Man went as a Wise Man. He also had to make sure he had something to stand-in as a present to the Baby Jesus...sweet, right?
He wore sneakers with his costume though, he said he wouldn't be able to play if he had to wear sandals, and since it was a little on the chilly side, I figured it would be okay.
The fall party happened right before teacher in-service, so it was on the Wednesday before Halloween. I came to bring in the treat bags and had a fun time watching the kids eat some treats.
In the photo above is Little Man's kindergarten teacher.
The kids also did a craft that was provided by the Room Mom...painting silk leaves and then putting leaf prints on foam pumpkin shapes.
Hubby was away for work until that Friday, so on Friday night, we did the Jack-O-Lantern.
Little Man had been excited to carve the pumpkin ALL WEEK!
On Saturday we went to the Fall Festival held at the church where Little Man's school is located. Open to the community, $2 admission is charged, and then all the activities are included and at each game or ride you get some candy. It's a fun, safe way to celebrate. They even gave us a free commemorative fridge photo magnet. It was a nice outing.
That night Little Man was scared by his own costume. He was afraid to see himself in the mirror. But he went trick-or-treating, asking over and over if he was "terrifying." And he was pretty scary looking, until we would get to a house and he would start almost hyperventilating with fear. So sweet...still a little guy, no matter how big he feels!
