The second to last weekend of October Pearl had a birthday party for a school friend at a local farm. She loved feeding the animals. She was one of the first to go up and get food. She told the little boy’s mom that this was the best party.
At the farm we picked up apples to make apple pancakes and an apple pie.
On Sunday the week before Diwalli we went to an event at the local children’s museum. They had special art projects that were special for the Diwalli holiday. It was really special.
Baby Tyler and Pearl wore their matching PJs.
In preparation for Halloween the weekend prior Munchkin had his first school dance called the the Halloween Hullabaloo. There were much too many kids. Munchkin had a great time. He didn’t want to go to the dance, he just wanted to go and help setup. After setting up he was interested in going. Munchkin was a rebel storm trooper. He was pretty set about being a storm trooper.
Pearl has gymnastics on Saturday morning. She loves it, but there is a two way mirror so it is impossible to take a picture. While Nithin was at gymnastics Munchkin and I went to the children’s museum with Munchkin’s Lego group. We were learning about animals they had and their habitats. We also saw the bee hive they have in the wall there. The guy who takes care of the animals at the children’s museum was great with the boys. They sat there and listened to him and asked questions for almost an hour.
Saturday night before Halloween we went and saw Rise of the Jack O’Lantern’s. The kids loved it. I was a little worried Pearl wouldn’t like the dark and lights, but she liked it the most.
Sunday for lunch we went out to get dosa for Diwalli. Munchkin had a birthday party where they played bubble soccer. It was an unusually hot day so Munchkin didn’t last long in the bubble.
For Halloween I made pudding dirt cups with ghost Peeps and pumpkins. They were pretty tasty per the kids. I also made worms from strawberry Jell-O and ground up Oreo’s. It looked so realistic and tasted really good.
On Halloween Pearl had a parade and party at school. Pearl was Kikki from the Kikki’s Delivery Service movie. She loves the movie and wouldn’t wear or choose a costume. So we figured this costume was close to normal clothes so she wouldn’t fight us on it.
In the afternoon I went to Munchkin’s class and we made magic wands.
On Halloween the kids went out with Nithin and did a few blocks. They didn’t want to go for a really long time. It was a nice non-crazy Halloween.
