Fall Festivities

Mattea had her preschool class party today in celebration of Fall/Halloween. It was a bit awkward explaining our Halloween beliefs and why we have chosen as a family not to celebrate. She handled it well though and really didn't seem to mind a bit that she was the only child there who was not in costume. She did get a new dress to wear instead of a costume, so she was more than pleased to show that off to everyone.

The class was able to decorate pumpkin cookies and enjoy some nice snacks.

And of course there was a little parade at the end in which each child could show off their costume to all the parents and then in return receive some candy. Again, Mattea liked looking at all the different costumes but didn't seem to mind in the least that she did not quite fit in.

Cute tights little M, you couldn't be cuter - even if you were wearing a costume!

What a fun party. You'll have to tell me sometime what your belief is on Halloween and the festivities.

Good for you for sticking with your beliefs and being okay with that. Glad Mattea wasn't bothered--but how could you be when you get a new outfit--she's too cute in those tights! Although I respect your non-Halloween celebration, I do miss seeing what the girls would look like all dressed up :-(
