Five on Friday...

1. Well, the wind blew away most of the leaves, though we still have green trees here and there (funny).

2. D had a huge emotional meltdown this morning -- triggered by his costume, of all things. *sigh* He decided he had to look more like Aang (the last airbender) than he was. He seriously asked if he could shave his head. Um, no.

3. But...once I got him to admit he was overreacting (and he went to school with at least a hint of a smile on his face), I went out and got some flesh-colored yarn and crocheted him a skull-cap -- and added a blue arrow. So he can almost look bald ;) (He won't know about this until I show up at the party with his costume -- hopefully it will be a good surprise and won't add to the angst.)

4. Speaking of parties, somehow I ended up in charge of pix for both kids' classes -- and the parties are at the same time. Hm...at least I have an excuse not to do anything else ;)

5. There might be good news in the case of the stink in E's room -- once we moved all her blankets (which were half on the floor and half on the bed), I noticed that the room didn't smell anymore. So I smelled the blankets -- and whoa! I'm hoping they were the source of the mildew-y smell, and I washed them all thoroughly yesterday (with vinegar and baking soda thrown in) -- we'll see if that takes care of it (we hope, we hope, we hope).

Happy Halloween weekend!

Kids always want their custom perfect, but you got a great solution you will see he is going to like it
Is great you found the thing with the mildew were the blankets and not other thing.

Is the Day of the Dead on Monday? (or Sunday?) Do you know how that's related to Samhain? (Just curious...)

Thanks, Anabel :)

I searched to see what Samhein is, is a gaelic festival that also celtics had, well celtics were in spain and spanish were here so maybe it has a little of it . But mostly what we celebrate is our dead people, it is a mix of the culture that was here before the spanish and the catolicism. So what we do is an altar were we celebrate dead and put pictures of our loved dead people and put food and drinks they liked for them. The altars are full of color, fotos , flowers etc. My son in his school made one for the heros of the revolution since this year are 100 years from this and it is beautiful . I hope i can take a picture on wednesday if they don´t take it before then and show you.

I had fun taking pix at school. The kids are so excited for Trick-or-Treating -- and so am I, since I do nothing but hand out candy while DH takes them around ;)
