Happy Halloween!!




This year for our Halloween party, it was quite difficult to come up with unique costume. So, in my weekly journals that I write to my first graders, I asked them what they thought I should be. I had several hilarious responses such as: "You should be a waterfall because you're so tall" or "You should be a super model because you're the prettiest teacher....(good boy). But the best idea had to have been: "You should be a lamb!!" and that's just what we did...well kinda? Here I am as Little Bo Peep. Can you guess who my sheep is?


Apparently I didn't know how to wear my costume so half way through our party my friend so kindly told me my top was on backwards!! I did wonder why is was so uncomfortable? Ha ha. Scottie's costume was a classic!! I made it out of 10 bags of cotton balls and one can of spray adhesive...and a pair of sweats. Thanks for making my day babe!!

Here is a picture after I figured out how my costume was suppose to look.




Here are a few pics from our party!!

But what is Halloween without the usual carving of the pumpkins?






Happy Halloween!
