We had a fun Halloween. Three costumes for Katrine and one each for Glenn and I…and WAY to much left over candy(guess that I should have listened to Glenn and not bought that second bag of chocolate bars). The fun started on Thursday when “The Christmas Fairy” appeared in her Kindergarten class to enjoy the festivities. The next day “The Ladybug Fairy” enjoyed some fun at Daycare. Yesterday morning, “The Snowflake Fairy” appeared at skating where she actually won a little teddy bear for her costume.(More importantly, she actually bent her knees while skating!)
Then we went to the zoo where Glenn and “The Christmas Fairy” took part in a costume parade. I missed it because I had managed to lock the keys in the trunk of the car and had to wait for CAA. She was tickled because they gave each of the children in costume a little stuffed toy at the end of the parade. Then they had a musician perform who was wonderful. He handed out insturments to all of the kids and had then play along. One of the songs that he sang was Down By The Bay, which just happens to be her favourite song at the moment. He let her come up to the microphone and she belted it out as proud as can be. It was too cute.
Trick or treating got off to a rocky start because she was “afraid to go to the strangers houses” but then she saw the candy and we were off and running. Now the question is, what do we do with all of the candy? Can one little girl eat all of the haul? I suppose that we will see.
I will finish by answering the oft asked question: No. There is no news from China. Yes. We are still waiting. And no. We don’t know when our referral will come. Rest assured that we will pass on any news as soon as we have some. Enjoy the photos.
