These last few weeks have been very busy. This week with all of the excitement of Halloween, we also have the end of the quarter and finals. If that was not enough, Kara has a choir concert, and I have a birthday. I am not sure even sure when we will have time to carve our pumpkins this year. Hopefully we can before Friday night.
This past weekend I took Kara and her best friend to a Halloween festival in the town over. It is based on the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and almost everyone comes out in costume. The girls wore their alien troll outfits that I mentioned earlier this summer in my It's Only a Phase post. This time though, they could wear their costumes out in public without all the strange looks. They fit right in, and even allowed me to take a ton of pictures, something I could not do in the summer.
I don't know if it was because they were in costume, but they were full of attitude that night. There was not as much to do at the festival as there normally is, so they asked if they could have a photo shoot. I am glad that they did. We got some really fun pictures, and I have something I can show to Kara's kids someday when she thinks her kids are going through a crazy phase.
