so what a weird holiday- I mean it is fun and all- I guess.
It is fun to dress up I suppose. I wanted to be Sarah Palin for Halloween this year...but couldn't find the glasses.
I just don't like all the gory blood skeletons and knifes stabbed through hearts type stuff. Chay thinks I am weird.
I was baptized on Halloween. I remember my mom asking me when we got home from my baptism if I thought it was a good idea or not to go trick or treating- after such a spiritual experience. Of course I thought it probably wouldn't be. Mom always had such a remarkable way of teaching. She somehow helped us make good decisions while making it feel like it was our idea to begin with.
So have you ever heard of the cartoon Word Girl? word up Word Girl. Ok I am not a cartoon fan. I have issues with most Disney movies- have you ever noticed that almost all the girl characters in the Disney movies never have moms? Ariel? no. Belle? no. Cinderella? no. Snow white? no. pocahontas? I don't think so. Jasmin? no. Mulan? I don't know- ok so I don't even know why I brought that up- anyway back to Word Girl, who has a mother...is a cartoon I actually enjoy watching with Kenz.
I seriously laugh so hard to Word Girl. I was folding laundry one day and I started to listen to this cartoon and I was so entertained. I will embarrassingly admit I You Tubed Word Girl and watched every episode one day. Well Kenzie loves it too- for entirely different reasons- and that's ok- but Word Girl is this super hero girl who has this amazing vocabulary (PBS of course) and she protects her city from villains who can't out word her so to speak- it is just random and funny.
so with little time- and not wanting to spend more than $2 on a costume- I conjured up this poor mock up of Word Girl for Kenzie to wear for the ward Trunk and Treat. People kept calling her Word Girl all night and she would say, "I am not Word Girl, I'm Kenzie" But then all you have to do is ask her what Word Girl says and she will reply "word up word girl"
oh and julia was a clown- I was hoping to dress her up as a witch (very fitting) but I was offered a free costume to borrow instead (thanks Tara) and I couldn't pass that up.
