We had Halloween mania these past few days, 5 days in a row to be exact. Last Thursday night we went to Spooktacular at the Zoo with Shannon, Kevin and little baby Ali. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Yo Gabba Gabba!, Ryan is a character from that show named Brobee.
Friday night we went to Truck or Treat at our church, again with Shannon, Kevin & Ali. Afterwards we all headed to our hosue to watch the Red Birds win it all! I have been a Cards fan my whole life; I grew up sitting on my Dad’s lap listening to Jack Buck on the radio, I worked as an usher at the old Busch for 5 seasons, so it was awesome to see them win 11 in 11! I’m sort of sad that Tony retired, but I guess I’d like to leave on a high too.
Saturday afternoon we went to a Halloween party given by our friends Doug & Erin. They had inflatables, about 70 pizzas and even a balloon artist! It was a lot of fun and great to see lots of old friends.
Sunday afternoon we had another Halloween party; there were lots of games, crafts and yummy chili. Ryan is just so shy with crowds of kids he doesn’t know. He’s the little green one standing a foot away from all the other children.
Monday was, of course, Halloween! John’s parents and I went to his Halloween party at his school. (We call is school, it’s the learning center at Prime) He gets such a kick of me showing up there 🙂 We then trick or treated around the building and got lots of candy.
Ryan always talks about Claire at school, he says she is his girlfriend. I finally met her and her Mom, both of whom are very nice. Last night we went trick or treating around John’s parents neighborhood and ours before heading home to hand out some treats to about 10 kids. It was a very fun, but hectic, Halloween!
