But alas, the girls do like to dress up and boy are they cute! And my sensory loving self, does like to carve a pumpkin every now and then! So this year we did the pumpkins, we did the dress-up, the girls did five houses in the neighborhood and we took them to a "Trunk or Treat" at a local church. It wasn't exactly a night to remember, but they did have fun. They also got a small load of candy. Which I am letting them eat. At least for a few days....and then it will mysteriously disappear!
I got two. The girls shared one and worked together.
It was Claire's first pumpkin!
The boys each carved one side of a pumpkin......it was two-faced! Get it?
Claire was a little grossed-out!
Isabel loves gross!
So of course.....oh, yes she did!
She picked the puking pumpkin!
The proud creators of this mess!
Did you ever see more beautiful, more colorful, more goofy fairies than this?
I think not!
I have to say that the jump castle was the surprise favorite of the night. Claire has never gotten to do one before.....because guess what jump castles don't allow? Shoes. No shoes, no braces = no jumping or standing for a little girl with no muscle tone. And they are usually crowded with little tikes that would jump all over a wee little fairy princess. But, not at this castle. At this castle, she was allowed in with just her sister while all other jumpers waited in the wings! I nearly cried when the woman said she'd do that. I didn't even ask, she just heard me telling Claire what it would be like if she went in with all those other children.
So, her first jump castle was a big success!
