DS went as Pikachu. This is a size large costume and it was difficult to find. Most stores didn't offer it, so we bought it on Ebay. DS was surprised that the mask was so flat. It bothered his nose b/c it wasn't molded at all for the face, and the plastic also was quite thick, compared to most Halloween masks. But he had a good time and everyone admired his costume. He says he wants to be something scary next year (sigh). Lots of milestones. We didn't go trick-or-treating at the zoo this year, and I recognize this as one more childhood tradition being left behind (sniff).

BTW, regarding our math saga -- ds is being allowed to move down to the teacher who likes him. He made this decision himself last week when he feared he would lose art club again. We have an intervention meeting scheduled in 2 weeks to discuss possible delays and how to accomodate them. I will also push for testing and an IEP.

I hear you about losing those little kid traditions and activities. Sophie was a scary werewolf this year. I will try to post later, but you've already seen it.

KM - GREAT costume on your son! Love it!

Here's our cowgirl. The first one is a very grainy photo - whoops. And not sure why so big. I don't post pictures very often. But you get the idea.

Great costume - we didn't even think about that one! DS also wants to be a scary guy but so far I've been able to push back. I told him mommies cannot be afraid of their sons !!

a couple of the kids on the pumpkin patch and one of DD at her first figure skating competition this Sunday. She won first price/x3 for her age group and level. She mastered it like a pro - was a bit nervous but when I asked her how it felt to be out there on her own she said "it's much better because you have lots of space and nobody cuts you off!" I'll post some of DS playing hockey soon too! My Halloween pictures didn't turn out that great this year unfortunately , but we had fun at parties and trick-or-treating. Love this holiday!

I might remove the pictures in a few days.

and in fact, I am not sure if any were even taken of my two. I should check the camera. The memory card needs emptying so I'll get to this soon!

They're definitely not babies anymore. I remember their cherubic curls. But they're just as charming as ever!
