Halloween Celebrations (Part Two)

Oh, my goodness!  I forgot to put up some pictures of Riley's second grade program.  Every Halloween, the second graders put on a very fun Halloween program.  They sing songs, and do little hand movements, and each class has their own little poem they recite together.  It was awesome.  So much fun.  Wednesday was the day.  We left Kaleb home with Zach in charge.  They had both already seen it, and the school is so close if anything happened that Zach couldn't handle, we could get back quickly.  Zach called us 4 times when Kaleb woke up crying, but we told him how much pain medicine to give him, and all was well.  He's such a good brother.  I love this program because it's all about Halloween, and because the kids get to dress in their costumes for it.  Riley said he couldn't wear his mask, though.  He's dressed as a skeleton, and at one point during the program, the Velcro closing it shut in the back came undone.  I told him next time that happens, he needs to turn to his neighbor and as him to put him back together. I didn't take any video, though, so all you get are pictures.  I'll just do a couple because most of them are blurry.

These are two of the second grade classes.  The others are hidden by the heads of all the tall people who don't have much consideration for all the short people.  We should have gotten there sooner.  Then we could have had front row seats.  These things are a pretty big deal here.

 Here, the children are pretending to be jazz players playing some sweet jazzy tunes on their saxophones.

 Cool decorations!  I want that spider.  Maybe next year.


Last night was our ward party.  They kept calling a fall festival, but it was a Halloween party.  I mean, hell-oh!  People were encouraged to wear costumes for crying out loud!  It was a total blast, though.  We all brought soup, chili, or rolls.  I brought rolls.  I didn't want to make soup.  All the kids were dressed up in their costumes.  Some of the parents got into the spirit, too.  I was a witch.  Kurtis doesn't like to dress up, so I said he could be a Mormon.  His costume was way awesome.  Mine was better, though.  Because witches are hot.  One dad was a pregnant woman.  I'm pretty sure he wore his wife's clothes.  It was kinda creepy.  Our bishop and his wife dressed up as Wilson from Castaway.  Here, let me just show you!

 Kaleb wanted his snake to be dressed up, too.  He put this costume together himself.  It's orange construction paper taped on him, and he is a pumpkin snake! :D  Clever.

 Woody came to our party!  "There's a snake in my boot!"

 The bishop's wife - dressed as Wilson.  They both wore the same thing.  This is funny because their last name is Wilson.

 Corpse Bride.

 Thing 1 and Thing 2 came! 

 And look!  It's DJ Lance from Yo Gabba Gabba!

 Love these beautiful sisters.  They really are sisters.  I wasn't just being all mormony on you.

 Thing 1 burned himself on some dry ice, and dropped it in the bucket causing a massive spill.  It was awesome.

He cleaned it up.

 A little Elephant!  So cute!

 There's my Mormon man.  And my little bleeding Scream ghost.

 Captain Hook!  Yikes!

 What a nerd.

 An Indian warrior.  No, Native American.  I must be P.C. about these things.

 I found Waldo!  And her tootsie roll! :D

 Tinker bell, a witch, and an Egyptian Princess.

 A vampire, a nerd, and half a skeleton walk into a church...

 I'm bring home a little baby bumble bee!  Won't my mommy be so proud of me! 

 A jail bird and the green M&M!  So beautiful!

 Oh, no!  A scary witch!  

 Oh, what a cute fairy!

 This young man is Thomas Edison, and next to him is Swamp Thing!  Wooooo!

 This is Kody.  He makes one beautiful girl.

I told you I was hot.
