We had a great Halloween weekend! Dusk carved pumpkins with the kids on Saturday, we went to a fun Harvest Party with our new church on Sunday and then both kids trick or treated with Bodie's new TWISSP class on Monday morning - all 20 or so kids in the program went to the local businesses in the complex where the therapy center is located. It was one of the neatest experiences - the merchants were SO excited (apparently, this is the second or third year they've done it and everyone really looks forward to it). Have to say it was one of the cutest things I've seen in a long time.
(The funniest moment was probably when they got to a police supplier of some sort (lots of shirts, hats, equipment, etc. inside and police cars outside - Bodie ran in and started pointing and yelling "BAD GUY!" at everything in sight. It was fairly embarassing as I was trying to explain to him that no, police officers were the "Good guys" (not sure where he got the good guy/bad guy concept from, honestly) - but everyone got a kick out of it!)
Then, we stopped by Sierra's school to check out all of her little friends in their costumes - so adorable. And Dusk took the kids out trick or treating on Monday night. Dusk said Bodie did great - totally got the concept of walking up to the houses, putting the candy in his little basket and then saying "tank ooh". Apparently, he was quite the charmer. A far cry from last year, when we held him the whole time. :-)
Here's some pics of the festivities...
As you can see, Bodie was a HUGE fan of the whole pumpkin carving process...Ha...
Sierra was adorable as a Cal Poly cheerleader...
Sierra with her bestie, Sofia (who's moving to South Carolina next month - but we're NOT talking about that!!!)
Sierra with our favorite Teacher Juju, who has been an instrumental part of our lives since Sierra started at DRCCC at 4 months old - we love Juju!!!
