This is the first dance that parents are not required to be at because she's at an intermediate school (5-8th). Exciting for her and her friends, but a little sad for me. I was going to be a chaperone but decided to have a date night with the husband instead. It was great to see her when she came home because it was a blast for her.
Now yesterday for our little nephew Kane's first birthday party, my brother and his wife made it a Halloween party, so we had another dose of costumes and fun. They really went overboard and put on a great time. There were little pumpkins for the kids to carve and paint. They had a monster pinata in the driveway. We went on a "Great Pumpkin" walk through their neighborhood carrying lit pumpkins with kids and some adults in costumes making lots of noise which really turned out to be fun--many drivers honking horns and neighbors popping outside to wave "hi." So many little cuties in costumes ranging in age from 7 weeks to 12 years old. A great night of fun for kids and us grown-ups.

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you all find some fun in the fall holidays like we have so far.
