1st Grade Halloween Party

This was our first classroom party of the new school year. Hannah was very excited! They got back to the classroom a little early so Mrs. Watts read them a story while we waited for the other parents to arrive.

The kids got to go to their desks where a treat bag awaited them! They had a blast looking thru all of the candy they were getting, as well as the little toys. They also felt very big because they got to go to the "goodies" table and only put on their plate what they wanted. They were so cute being "big kids" and fixing their own plates. In the picture below Ms. Hannah is enjoying her cupcake.

After all the kids had fixed their plates, I let Isaac pick out a cookie and he sat in a big chair and ate it up! He looked like he had gotten in a fight with the cookie and the cookie won! Ha!

Just another picture of my sweet Hannah showing me the pumpkin she picked out at the United Methodist Church Pumpkim Patch. The kids had taken a field trip there earlier that week. One of the fun things they did at the party was to decorate their own little pumpkins. What a great idea!

After Isaac had his cookie & juice he went to the mat and laid down. He cracks me up! He just rolled around and around.

He ended up on the carpet where stories are read. He just laid there for a while. :-) Silly Boy!

Hannah decorating her pumpkin.......

The girls taking a break from decorating to socialize, of course!
Hannah & Emilee W.
....shhhh, let me tell you a secret.....

hahahaha Aren't we funny Mom?!?

Hannah & Ava (still doing the crazy bunny ears thing)

Finally! The finished product.....Hannah's decorated pumpkin! You can't really see it too well but she drew on it with crayons and her dry erase marker. You can see the face better in person.

Hannah & Desiree
(Hannah usually towers over everyone in her class but this year there are 4 people taller than her!)

I lost Isaac at one point during the party.....I found him playing with the clock at the front of the class. He loved this clock!

After playing a bit, Isaac stood in front of Hannah's desk and ate her food while she did a little more decorating on the pumpkin.

Now for a group shot! I wish I could remember all of these sweet little faces but I know by the end of the year I will be able to name them all off! Here is Hannah with many of her new little friends.

And last but certainly not least....the wonderful Mrs Watts!!! She is a treasure! Hannah adores her....and so do Brian and I!

I guess "bunny ears" are extremely funny in the 1st grade because the kids thought it would be hilarious to put "bunny ears" on Mrs. Watts.....silly kids!

I don't know the little boy on the left's name but the taller one is Bry.....and Hannah in the middle.

Hannah trying to collect Isaac so we could help clean up the classroom and leave....he had a blast and didn't want to go!

Mrs. Watts did an amazing job getting this party planned and I was so happy to get to help her set up and clean up. This is by far one of the funnest parts of my "stay at home mom" job! I love being in Hannah's classroom and getting to build a relationship with her friends and teacher. I look forward to the time I get to do this for Hannah and Isaac!
