The scary face picture. Note the spooky backdrop...
This is what Zombie Sully looks like when he is trying to say "please don't take my eyeballs away again, I love these eyeballs, please I keep?"
We have Hedwig as our computer wallpaper and everyday Jack says "dat horse roll in da mud?" and when I say yes he says "awwwwww, silly horse!"
Unfortunately for us, Hedwig lives in Vermont! But a road trip may in order soon so we can all meet this silly horse.
Superman Jack (with kryptonite), Dr. "I Call the Shots" Amanda, and Batgirl Elizabeth
Jack and Amanda scoping out the dance floor. It was too early for the fog machines and strobe lights to have much effect, so we decided to come back when it got darker.
Most of the animals were already in their private zoo beds by the time we got there. This bear was fast asleep out in the open, even with the Halloween dance music blasting right next to him.
The bat cave was perfect because all of the flashing bats were hot pink...
And it made our Batgirl come alive!
The kids also went trick or treating at all of the mini houses around the zoo, Elizabeth was able to see one elephant before it went to bed, we rode the haunted train, roasted marshmallows, went through the haunted pirate maze, and danced the night away until around 8:15 when it all started to fall apart.
Elizabeth could have danced all night, she was in heaven bouncing around to every batgirl, batwoman, batman, batboy, or batbaby just to make a connection and then get them to jump up and down with her on the dance floor. But Jack was OVER IT and was starting to talk gibberish. Amanda was stabbed in the hair by a marshmallow stick so she was ready to take her clumpy marshmallow head home.
We are getting better at timing our exit, always before a tantrum sneaks up on us. Jay even bought a bag of popcorn on our way out, which worked like magic to get them to the car without a fuss or complaint. Once in the car, they made one request: can we come do it all again tomorrow???? I said maybe, which Amanda always tells me really means "no" in Spanish. She's usually right.
Jack trying to figure out his craft. In the background it looks like Amanda is about to get punched in the nose.
Jack and his friend Lisabeth. Jay and Lisabeth's Dad work together so this year has been fun to have both of these cuties in the same class. The chubby cheeks in the two year old classes are too much!
I'm not sure Elizabeth is ready to see the movie, she is still more Little Bear than Where the Wild Things Are. But for some reason it all takes me back to elementary school when we would all gather in the "pod" to watch Really Rosie.
