Yesterday, I was gone but Shawn took the girls to the ward Carnival. They decorated cookies, face painted, went fishing, got a cupcake in the cake walk, etc. They had fun and got some fun prizes! I was sad I was gone...but it was to book club so it was alright! ;)
Today was a Halloween, fun-filled day!! We started the day with getting Brinley (& Cambree-she insisted!) ready for school in her BYU Cheerleader costume that Brynn made! Thanks again! I didn't think they let kids dress up anymore, but I was happy she got to! I was so glad I didn't have to worry about costumes this year!! She wanted to be a Cheerleader again, Whew! I even painted a Y on her cheek this time. It was short day so all she did was party paraded around the school. She told me some of the older kids would say "Go BYU!" to her. She thought that was cool.
While Brinley was at school, I took Cambree shopping. She just loves shopping but it made it even better when everyone was dressed up and getting candy at all the stores!! She didn't want to stop! I never really go shopping on Halloween but I should cuz it was fun!! Oh, and Tai Pan already had all their Halloween stuff 50% off! Sweet!
After school was out, I went to wait for Brinley at her bus stop. As I was heading there, her bus went right by! I thought maybe it would turn around, but it didn't. So I thought maybe she missed the bus. So I ran home (a 1/2 mile away!) and called the school. Nope. They sent me over to her teacher and she said Brinley got on the bus! As I was talking to her, I hear, "Mom!" It was Brinley! Whew! The bus driver just forgot and then dropped her off right outside the gate! Good thing I gave her a paper with the code on it!! That was a horrible feeling to not know where my child was! This bus thing is nice but kinda stresses me out sometimes!
THEN, we went to Shawn's work so the girls could see everyone and trick-or-treat there. Shawn insisted that Brinley not wear her BYU cheerleader costume to the U, so she was a lion instead. Traffic was HORRIBLE so we got there a little late but they still got PLENTY of treats!! And they love seeing their daddy at work!
We rushed home, in the bad traffic, and had our traditional Mummies (pigs in a blanket) Halloween meal. It's perfect cuz it's easy, but still not healthy. Oh well...it's hard to satisfy both, isn't it?
Anyway, we just went around here and most of the people here are old so there were A LOT of houses dark or they just didn't answer their door (or they were too slow!). But they still got tons cuz most people would tell them to take 2 or 3 candies. At one house Cambree made herself right at home, walked in and started throwing balls for the dog to get. The lady was so nice and said she could come by anytime to play with the dog! So cute! My girls are SO not shy!! Another time Cambree saw a princess and just kept staring at her and touching her. She almost followed her into the Princess's house! I really didn't know her obsession was that deep! It was getting late and the girls were starting to get tired. So we just had them go to houses on they way back. I said, "Go to that house, they have a TV on." So they did and Cambree asks if she can come in and watch TV. The lady was so cute and said you can come watch Deal or No Deal with me if that's what you want to do! Then, at the next house Cambree again asked if she could watch TV with them! She was a little obsessed with that!! LOL We told her when they got home they could watch a little Halloween show! They're so crazy!!
Now, it's off to paint the house all day!! I hope we get lots done!
