For Halloween, Riley decided to be Ninja Warrior and Maggie made up a costume called Sassy Cat complete with a broom,kitten ears, and a sparkly dress. We enjoyed a "Kids Eat Free in Costume" meal from McAlisters with Grandmama and then checked out our new neighbors with some trick-or-treating action. The neighbors beside us gave out full-sized candy bars and the guy down in the cul-de-sac handed out glow sticks which were really popular with our two.
Our annual pilgrimage to Penland Tree Farm!
Zippy arrived tonight!
And a final round-up of Kid-isms:
- "My stomach laughed every time on the roller coaster when it went down." (Maggie talking about her new favorite ride at Carowinds...the Do-Si-Do.
- Mom to Chris: "Did you hear about the Bears player who may lose his leg?" Maggie pipes up: "It's okay. He can just grow a new one." Riley corrects her quickly, "No, Maggie, he will need a robot leg."
- Maggie in the car on the way home from school after I asked her about her day: "I'd rather not say this, but Senora Garcia gave us Smartie Pants (candy)."
