Halloween. Our family, well, Rohan especially, lives for the next Halloween.
His life is dress up, created characters and some form of acting or another.
Halloween is his time to observe with awe and to soak in a time of year when everyone else is also excited to become a new character.
This year we were:
Max: Darth Vadar
Rohan: Willy Wonka
Mom: Hippi Longstocking
(my costume was created out of an innocent mistake... Max accidentally said my Pippi Longstocking outfit was Hippi Longstocking.... I loved it so much I promptly found all the items I needed to make this a reality!)
I made witches hands for the kids classes this year... thanks to my friend Judy for this wonderful idea.
It was a big hit!
This was a balmy day the week before Halloween.
My boys love rain. Here is their rain story:
(i love this one a lot)
Believe it or not I have been super busy! Mondays I spend running, grocery shopping, cleaning and then to school from 12:30 until 4. We have drama club every Monday and I volunteer before that.
I have also been fortunate enough to have some extra "work" right now. A friend is renovating a house and she invited me to help her. So... on my days I am not playing and caring for my buddy Axel.. I am scrapping something.
Needless to say the kiln and the studio are feeling lonely and left out. I have found one part I need but have not fixed anything yet. It sits there in the back of my mind like a muddy pile of leaves waiting to be raked. I need to move on.... and get this giant oven fixed.
I do love fall and slippers and blankets but am not ready for the heat to be on and for shivers.
May you enjoy your crunchy walks, warm ovens and sock covered toes.
