Halloween 2014

We had a full month of Halloween activities. The first weekend and first opportunity for the kids to wear their costumes was Zoo Boo. IJ had a pirate hat, eye patch and sword from previous birthday parties he'd attended so all we did was put him in a red shirt, jean shorts and purchased a piece of black and white fabric to make a sash. ZJ already had black clothes so I purchased one large piece of felt to make bat ears using a headband we already had, which I covered. Then she wore bat wings we made years ago for one of the dogs to wear.

The following weekend was our neighborhood Halloween party at the park by our house. NJ volunteered to do face painting and since no one else ever volunteered he painted for the entire 2 hour party.

The next weekend was the Halloween festival at IJ's school which is their big Fall fundraiser. I don't have pics but both kids had fun and I spent most of the time running a carnival game.

Then the actual night of Halloween. ZJ went out trick-or-treating with NJ. IJ was not allowed to go due to his behavior at school that week. ZJ really enjoyed herself.

Once they returned from trick-or-treating the "switch witch" came and switched out the processed candy junk for my homemade crisp rice crunch bars and coconut chocolate dipped bars.  The entire family enjoyed them and several friends we shared with.
