Halloween Celebration 2011

I never realized how much production work goes into a Halloween celebration until last year when my kids got invited to Halloween parties. Looks like there's no going back to that old 'simpleng-sindi-ng-kandila-at luto-ng-biko' (light a candle for the dead and make sticky rice) way of celebrating trick or treat now that I have toddlers... but nobody's complaining, nah-ah, not me. I love doing all those works for my kids!

To start off, Sophie joined her school's Halloween party last Friday dressed as a flapper girl (she had to repeat several times what she was during the presentation of costumes because she's the only flapper girl in school). Although the parent judges voted a student dressed as a pink fairy for the best costume, Sophie won the Teacher's Choice/Ms. Halloween 2011 award! Yipee! All those hard work hand sewing yards of tassel paid off after all :)
with her classmates, aren't they cute?

I took a half day off from work to bring my little girl to school and I'm glad I did because I wouldn't miss this for the world. Got to be a parent judge, too, for the nursery class. After the program we drove the kids to their classmates' house for trick or treating. Even Sam was able to tag along and he had such fun collecting all those candies!
That was such a tiring day but anything for my little ones. Got back to work after the event. The life of a working mom...

Come weekend, we celebrated Halloween in our subdivision and you know what that means... more candies! Waah! I ended up secretly giving away some of their candies. There are just too much to make a parent panic!
It was fun and tiring Halloween celebration, good thing it was a long weekend for us working moms so I had time to rest (somehow).
