We played a few games then the kids walked around the room to the moms and collected goodies in their bags. It was much easier than going door- to door! Here are Jack and Josiah comparing their "loot"
A grocery store near our house did sell mid- sized pumpkins this year. But they were over $20 usd each so I decided to let the kids paint a pumpkin on my belly instead tonight. They LOVED it! I did not anticipate how much it would tickle, ha, ha! Then as the paint started to dry it was very itchy. We also made popcorn balls and figured the kids had had enough sugar and fun to call it a Halloween.
We are pretty used to celebrating holidays untraditionally. And trust me, painting a pumpkin on my belly will not be a repeated tradition (:
