I Want My Mummy

Halloween is this weekend as I’m sure your kids have made it quite clear. My son’s Beaver group held a Halloween party with games and treats and crazy boy fun. One game consisted of the boys being broken into groups and having to wrap up one team player as a mummy. Can you guess who the mummy is:

Yup, you guessed it, that’s my son. His team won, which is great but sort of a surprise. I mean, here’s a boy who can’t sit still for 5-minutes, even when brushing his teeth he’s jumping on one foot, yet her stood perfectly still while his friends wrapped him up mummy-style. And I mean wrapped him up good. You can barely see his eyes peeking out.

Perhaps his mummy-like behaviour has something to do with the Mummy Mazes book from Workman Publishing that we reviewed yesterday for Write a Review Wednesday. Of maybe it’s just his fascination with toilet paper.

Getting Ready for Halloween

Yesterday was cold and wet and leaves were all over the ground. It was a perfectly, eerie afternoon to work on getting the house entry way spooked up for Halloween this weekend.

I have two intermittent helpers during the day though I think they had more fun playing with the skeleton pieces in the front yard than actually decorating.

A few chilly hours later we turned our porch into something a little scary. Okay, maybe not much but at night it might look scary (meaning more Halloween candy for me).

Boo! Happy Halloween.
