Halloween, The Final Chapter

It's the 31st and the Halloween season has finally drawn to a close. It's been a fun one, and here are the last bits of odds and ends from our adventures:
Here are the kids in all their cold weather candy-gathering Halloween glory. Sam was a knight, Anna was a beautiful (albeit toothless) princess and Josh was a dragon. Very cool. I just about had a meltdown sewing the older kids' costumes (Amber, when you're reading over this next year, save yourself some grief and just BUY THE DAMN COSTUMES), but the kids were happy and that makes me happy. We could barely keep Josh out of his "cosatoom" for the past week.

And don't ask me how I got wrangled into coordinating Sam's classroom party, but I did. It is such a sweet class and it turned out to be a lot of fun. I forgot my camera, but I did take some pictures of the final projects. First, we made skeleton sections out of dried pasta (a Martha Stewart Kids magazine idea from years ago that I had filed away).
And with the few minutes between the craft and going home, we played some Halloween "BOO"ngo with Bingo cards I made with this darling David Walker dingbat font.

And it's finally all over. Tonight, I'm gonna sleep like the dead. Seriously.
