Before I talk about our two days of Halloween, I have to take just a moment and post this picture of the fall trees outside of our house. I took this picture on Thursday and that night the wind whipped all the leaves off of the trees, making them look like brown skeletons. They used to be so beautiful....alas....this picture is all that is left of them. SNIFF SNIFF
Ok, on to the real blog. Here is my little Spiderman. On Friday, Tyson's school class had a Halloween Party, his first one ever. I was able to accompany him as Vaughn had the day off and could stay home and watch Taryn. Tyson couldn't wear his Spiderman mask so we had to get up extra early to paint his face. I am no make up artist, but I think we did pretty good. The only problem was that about an hour into his party the paint started to itch and before long we had red paint everywhere. Oh well. It looked good for a few pictures.Tyson and all his little spooky classmates. They played a game of musical chairs and it was the funniest thing I have ever seen. The kids all went the wrong way, most of the time, and then when the music stopped, they have been taught to be so polite that they didn't want to take another person's chair away. HA HA HA It was priceless.
When Tyson came home he ran straight to Taryn to see what she would think about his painted face. She wasn't impressed. In fact she didn't want him to even touch her.Later on that day, Friday, we got a call from Nino's store that Tyson had won the Halloween coloring contest he entered there and could come and claim a free pumpkin of his choice. He was so tickled. Good job buddy!
