Halloween Pageant - chapter I
Our flight to Denver was uneventful and ahead of schedule, due to favorable tail winds. Baggage collecting was not quite so swift, but we were met by Jill and the kids, made a fast food dinner stop, and arrived in Fort Morgan about 8:00. With all we had to share I'm afraid we kept the kids up past their bedtime. But grandparents can get away with that occasionally. On Thursday everyone went to work and/or school. I made pumpkin cupcakes, and picked the kids up right after school so they could get home and decorate them. Did Grandpa forget to say "smile"? Love that cream cheese frosting! New books were shared. And we got dressed up and went to the high school open house 'Haunted House'. It was parent conference night and the school was open to the community. Kids had decorated and were handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. The Star Wars team is ready for action. You may not recognize Jill as Obe Wan Kanobe. An hour before we left home, Luke Skywalker's costume did not exist. Jill literally threw it together. When I went to check on her in the sewing room, she kicked me out, stating "Anyone who knows anything about sewing can't watch". Amazingly, whatever she did worked! All of that was before dinner. After dinner we carved pumpkins. Today, Friday, was school party day and we put in an appearance at both schools, but in the rush to remember everything we were supposed to take, we forget our camera. A terrible thing for grandparents to do. Fortunately Corey had his so I might have a photo or two in the next chapter. Because there is much more to come.
