It is his first Halloween. The excitement is in the air. I am not sure he is aware of all the fun he is missing yet, but his sister and brother none the less try to keep him in the loop. Their joy is surly understood. Even by a baby not yet a month old. I wasn't sure how we were going to get through all the holidays this year with a newborn, but so far so good. Yes, it is a little trickier trying to get through homeschooling and holiday preparations while changing a million diapers and nursing all day, but I am happy to say that I am surviving and keeping a positive attitude through it all. (well, except the other night when I was wondering what in the world have I done!) So this week we have been preparing for Halloween. Decorating the house, making pies, carving pumpkins, and of course making costumes. John made Pilot a knight vest with a paper bag and metal tape that is amazing! I will post costume pictures tomorrow. Jetta wants to be a vampire, so I will be doing some face painting tonight. I think Scout will just have to wait until next year to dress up. I think he has had enough excitement for one week. Now I need to get little rest before tonight.
