We carved pumpkins Monday night. The kids were soo excited. It's funny how much you realize the sacrifices your parents made when you become a parent. I mean, yes, carving pumpkins is fun, but it's also a big mess and the kids are crawling all over you, sticking their hands in goopy pumpkin mess, grabbing knifes outta the knife drawer to help you. It gets a little crazy! But it's worth it. It's like camping. Camping with little kids is A LOT of work. Camping with kids, period, is a lot of work (thanks Mom and Dad, btw!). But you do it for them and their memories..mess and all.
So you wanna hear something lame? Cole brings a letter home from school yesterday stating that Friday is "pajama day" and that they must wear clothing underneath their pjs. WHat?! No Halloween costume? It's absolute nuttiness, I tell ya. Geof. says he remembers being younger and not celebrating Christmas (at school), but spending a good week studying Hannukah. It's like we're appealing to the minority, not the majority. I LOVED Halloween parties! It's such a treat to be able to wear your costume to school. And the whole clothing UNDER the pj's thing? What's that about? So frustrating..
