This week is crazy busy with lots of crazy fun! It's Red Ribbon week in Kindergarten, and we all are happy to say No to drugs! Most importantly to Lincoln is that he gets to wear fun things all week. Monday was Wear Red, and he wore his Bowie red shirt (like he does every Friday!). Tuesday was Camo Day, and Bubbles got him a cool pair of camo pants. The school also made a lesson about caring for our troops who wear camo, and we donated toiletries (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc) to send to the soldiers. Cheesing before school with a happy little brother!
Of course, Lincoln loved his art project for the night. He made a holographic owl, and he was so proud!
Wednesday was 50s day, and he was going to wear a Grease (the movie) inspired black t-shirt with the T-Birds logo. Apparently iron on transfers got the best of Mommy because the t-shirt was an epic fail! How hard is it to iron on letters?!?! Crafty Mom card has been pulled! We went with a white t-shirt with the sleeves rolled up with black pants. He was fine with it, and Beau loved posing for another early morning pic! No wardrobe issues with Beau because he was loving the Ninja Turtles shirt and favorite shorts!
We got BOO-ed this week, and the boys loved it!!!! Our BOO package contained gummy bears, a light up necklace, lots of Halloween stickers, jelly beans, and a fun ghost poem. The poem instructed us to BOO two other neighborhood friends, so we got our BOO packages together to deliver. The packages consisted of suckers, tattoos, pretzels, popcorn, and Scooby gummies. We had so much fun sneaking up on our friends' houses to BOO them! A few of our soccer team friends had their BOO ghost taped on their door, so we couldn't BOO them again. We found two friends without BOO ghosts and did our best to sneak to the door, leave our treat, ring the bell, and race to the car before they could see us. The boys had the most fun ever!!!!!! Can we do this for every holiday? Or just for random days of the week? Seriously, it was the best fun ever!
We were ready for Spooktakular at the Club on Thursday night! The boys had to strike their best Ninja poses on the way in. Crazy guys!
There were tons of fun decorations, and a few crafts to do right away. We enjoyed the buffet and got busy with the cupcake walk. Serious cupcake walkers!!!
The Costume Contest was a big hit . . . the DJ and Head Chef were in charge of handing out trophies. A sweet baby girl "chick" won the girls award, and there was a little competition for the boys award. It was between a pose-striking Leonardo (Lincoln) and a cute SWAT team kid. The DJ decided a dance-off between the two would decide the best costume award, and he started up the "Happy" song. Lincoln immediately began to dance like crazy, and he was awarded the trophy right away! "This is best trophy ever, Mom!" He danced the night away with his special trophy.
Beau didn't walk away empty-handed . . . he won a cupcake in the cupcake walk! They are still debating over who's win was more important/special/meaningful/lasting/etc/andonandonandon! This cute family went for a spooky hayride through the golf course, and it was super fun! There were spooky skeletons, flashing lights, and ghosts in trees, and Beau desperately searched for gob-o-lins. Best hayride ever! (Until next year!)
One of the best "real" pictures of us in a while. We have had a super fun week for sure. There isn't anyone better to do life with than these guys.
