We are looking forward to celebrating Halloween, starting today through Monday. Curly went to school today dressed as a last-minute Grover and with the “Monster at the End of this Book” book. This week was Spirit Week at his daycare- day 1 was hat day, day 2 was pajama day, day 3 was backwards day, day 4 was mix-match day and today is ‘dress like your favorite storybook character’ day. And yes, Grover is much more than a storybook character, but Curly loves the Monster book and was so excited to don his Grover hat and all blue outfit this morning.

There is a costume parade at his school today…actually it was at 10am, but we couldn’t make it due to work (but for the people who work in the same building as the daycare…lucky them!). There is another costume parade in our neighborhood around 4pm today, so we’ll try to leave early for that. Tonight is also our neighborhood’s annual pumpkin walk in the woods after dark, complete with warm apple cider and hot chocolate. Tomorrow Nutella and I have a babysitter coming so we can attend a Masquerade ball and art show. Then of course, Monday we’ll be trick-or-treating with the little guy and handing out candy after he goes to bed. Yay for Halloween!

We’ve been having a lot of fun picking apples and pumpkins this Fall. Curly is especially into it now and happily tries to pick up ‘puckins.’ Here are a few pictures from our outings.
