Halloween 2021

We’re off to see the wizard! :) It was a Halloween not to forget with Claire fulfilling her dream of being a full on witch (Elpheba to be exact), and Reagan being a good sport to be Glinda the Good Witch in her sparkly pink. The rest of us filled in as Dorothy, Tin Man and Scarecrow and had the best Halloween! Highlights this year included: papa & yaya being here! Kindergarten and PreK parades – Claire having her face painted green 3 days in a row – lots of cackles and “I’ll get you my pretty, and your little dog too! (Very in character) – Trunk or Treat with the Bucket bike! – Fun Halloween Kinder + Knapp + Neighbor parties – Trick or Treat in the best neighborhood, lucky us! Happy Halloween.
