Halloween festivities

Halloween is Jamie's favorite holiday. He had very seriously been waiting for it for an entire year. After last Halloween, he never stopped wanting to get Halloween books from the library or talking about ghosts, vampires, and witches, so he was one happy boy when the season finally came around again. We had a ton of fun celebrating this year!

We decorated the house (a little bit, kind of)...
some monster decorations we made together
This spider web was short lived but pretty hilarious while it lasted. Jamie really wanted to scare Daddy with it but it fell down before he got home.
 We went to a Halloween party at our library branch...
my little dragon!
bean bag toss
pumpkin craft
feeling "body parts"
 We carved jack-o-lanterns...
Jamie wanted his face upside down because he thought it was scarier that way. And mine originally didn't have the eyebrows, but Jamie insisted it wasn't scary enough so I had to add them.
 We went to Jamie's preschool Halloween party...
decorating a robot mask
bobbing for apples - he totally cheated so his turn lasted all of 3 seconds
Halloween Bingo
pumpkin decorating
playing "Ghost, Ghost, Witch"
Halloween lunch!
We took cups of dirt pudding. Jamie was SO excited about it and put all the worms in. I didn't get any pictures of them but happily we had some left over at home for later!
I couldn't get a very good picture of it, but Jamie loved playing with the vampire teeth he got in his goody bag. It was SO funny.
And, of course, we went trick-or-treating! We had so much fun. Jamie lasted almost 2 hours before wanting to be carried and complaining about being sleepy. He had such a great time!
That was one happy boy...
I'll be interested to see if his love of Halloween continues this next year as much as it did before. Happy Halloween!

tutorials for Jamie's dragon costume -- for the hoodie (I added wings because without them he was indistinguishable from a dinosaur) and for the tail (I used felt for the spikes just because that's what I had used for the hoodie)
