Tonight our friends threw a big Halloween party, complete with fog machine, strobe lights, spooky music, and fun games! Ben had a blast, we lost him several times in the crowd, which was a little unnerving...but overall, the night was a fun one.
Xavier was definitely a bit out of sorts today. Probably because Ben hasn't allowed him to take a nap all week. Ben is done napping, much to my dismay. Anyway, Xavier was so cranky, he spent the evening with Gma and Gpa P. He would not have at all appreciated the noise level, darkness, and flashing lights...so we made a good choice on that one.
Ben the pirate (look next week for both boys in their pirate attire):
Me the mummy - the kids divided into teams and wrapped an adult with toilet paper. Here I am, getting all wrapped up:
The rain made for a bit of a mess with the toilet paper, but it was worth it...we won!
Bennett in all his messy t-p glory! Notice 3/4 of his costume is gone. Never expect a three year old to keep anything on for too long, I guess. :)
