Halloween Activities

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Candy, dressing up, candy, candy...

Here is Ami carving her pumpkin. She actually put her hand in the pumpkin instead of dancing around singing "icky icky." Progress.

Ami LOVES preschool. Home is a big disappointment compared to preschool. We have been so impressed by the teachers and their love for the kids. I helped with the Halloween Party (oh I mean Harvest Festival :)) Here is Ami after the craft.

I was in charge of the snack (shocker, my creativity has limits). The preschool had really specific requirements of do's and don'ts for the snack (no peanut butter, chocolate, marshmallows etc). So, we had cake bites (the spiders) and stuffed rolls (the snake). It turned out well and the kids loved it.

After snacks, crafts and games the kids had a parade. It was so fun to watch. Although Ami was a witch for Halloween, the preschool asked that the kids didn't dress up as witches etc. Super. So she was Angelina Ballerina. From the pictures, you can understand that she is kinda a cheese ball. (must get it from Nick).

The actual day of Halloween was really fun. Ami woke up "HAWAWEEENNN DAYYY! TWICK OWE TWEAT!!!" She had an amazing time. As a family, we dressed up in a Wizard of Oz theme. Ami was a witch. Robbie was a flying monkey. I was Dorothy and Nick was the cowardly lion. We took her to a few of our friends homes and then Ami went with one of her friends in our neighborhood. They were so cute. Ami was on a mission. She ran, not walked, ran from house to house. "Trick or treat. Thanks!" She made out like a bandit. "Yeah yeah yeah, lady. I'm cute, sure. I've got 4 more houses on this block. Hurry it up." (From Seinfeld HBO Standup.) If you have never heard Seinfeld's version of Halloween. Here is a link. It is a MUST. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MarBVyZVe9s You will laugh and laugh. I love Halloween.
