I hope you all had a great Halloween. We did!
But if you look at this picture, you'll notice an unexpected accessory on Maggie's princess costume.
That's right. Her arm is in a splint and and a sling. She is getting a hard cast in the next couple of days. She fell off of her Grandma's bed last night before bedtime, and although she cried for a while, she calmed down and went to bed normally. A few hours later, she woke crying and saying her arm hurt. We decided we didn't want it to wait, and we didn't want to spend all of Halloween at the hospital, so Mark took her to the emergency room at 11:00. They got home around 3:00 AM, and thankfully the whole family got to sleep in until 9:30.
She really didn't complain at all today, and was only sad that she had to slow down and not play as hard as normal. Today, we went and watched her preschool class perform a few Halloween songs they have been practicing. She did a great job and was very cute.
She was still super excited to get a treat bag from her Smurf teacher!
We carved five pumpkins on Sunday, and it was fun, dirty, and a lot of work. I can't wait until the kids are big enough to help with it. I just free cut all of these, the stencils and I were not getting along.
We also had a little cow come trick or treating with us. Liam LOVED trick or treating until he was just over it. Then, he took off his hood, unzipped his costume and refused to get out of the wagon. I kind of loved how firm he was in his decision.
Nothing can stop these two from having a great time. It was an awesome night!!
Ringing the door at Papa's house:
This wagon is always a life-saver for trick-or-treating. Love it!
I hope you all had a magical Halloween and I hope yours started much more smoothly. I still can't believe she broke her arm, I feel so incredibly bad for the girl. I am praying for a quick and easy recovery for her!
