We got many opportunities to put her Halloween costume on this month. This year she was a bride, just like Maria in The Sound of Music. There was the ballet recital that all the girls got to wear their costumes, our play group’s Halloween Potluck, Las Madres Halloween party at the Children’s Discovery Museum, the Halloween Party at NetApp, and finally, Trick-Or-Treating on Halloween. I don’t remember EVER wearing a costume more than once when I was a kid!
We went to three pumpkin patches this month – the one in Half Moon Bay with the Walter’s family, Pumpkins in the Park with some playgroup friends at the CDM, and in Petaluma for our Third Annual Pumpkin Patch Outing with Kristy and Nina. Lillian helped for the first time to carve pumpkins. She really didn’t like the feel of pumpkin guts, but tried scooping out the seeds anyway. We made an awesome statue of pumpkins, sort of like a snowman. It got many oooohhhhsss and aaaahhhhhssss from the trick-or-treaters.
