Yesterday was a really nice day for me. I spent all day with my kids :-) I searched thru the closet and dressed Aiden up like a pirate. He kept running to the bathroom to look at himself and would laugh because I drew a little mustach and beard on him. we listened to spooky music while baking carrot cupcakes.
Yesterday afternoon we went out to a small halloween festival for kids under 12 at a local community center. Aiden got to play games and get candy and go thru a haunted house. There was hotdogs and chips and snow cones and popcorn there and I dident eat anything. I only let aiden have a hotdog because I dident want him to be full of junk and not want dinner.
we came home and I made a really yummy casserole with sweet potatoe, apple, turkey sausage, cheese, onions, salt, pepper, ginger and pie crust. (sounds a bit weird but sooooo good!) ... I knew aiden wouldent eat it so I took the extra pie crust and filled it with whole wheat pasta and cheese sauce, mixed with mashed sweet potatoes. MMMM macaroni and cheese mixed with sweet potatoes has an awesome taste! and the kids dont know the difference, I think I will make it like that from now on. .... We carved our pumpkin while dinner cooked. Lyra helped which was really cute. Then we put lyra to bed and Me, Andrew and Aiden ate dinner and a cupcake a peice while watching Old Halloween Micky Mouse cartoons. :-)
Im glad I got to do something for halloween with aiden. He wont be here this halloween because he goes to his biological fathers house this weekend :-( I have only ever got to go trick or treating with him once since he was born. It makes me kinda sad. In another two years He will be with me for halloween at least because it wont fall on a weekend in two years, So I can look forward to that.
Im taking lyra out trick-or-treating tomorow, that should be fun.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!!
