Happy Halloween!

The first Halloween for my princess!

And her brother decided to explain it all to her

We've decided today is a day to eat candy all day and nap in the afternoon. We still have a whole evening ahead of us.

Matthew was thrilled to learn the best Halloween poem ever.
"Trick or Treat
Smell my feet
Give me something good to eat
If you don't
I don't care
I'll pull down your underwear"

Yep. He's 4!

O Canada ... or something!

The sheet music for the anthem :en:O Canada, w...Image via WikipediaDinner is always an interesting time in our house. We try our best to turn off the tv and have dinner as a family.
It doesn't happen everyday, but we try.
Tonight we were talking about school, and what he does during the day. Of course they sing "O Canada" every day. So we asked him the words.

"Oh Canada. Our home and timberland"
"then there's a whole bunch of La la la"
"Oh Canada we socialize for thee."
"Oh Canada we socialize for thee."

I have NO idea what they are teaching him in class, but apparently socialism is on the agenda!

Of course, we also like to hear the stories he brings home from church. We try very hard to find out what he learned in Sunday School, and talk about it during the week.

One week they "drew pictures for apricots" (wrote letters to kids in Africa)
This week they sang "Thank you God, for giving us poo." (really, food)

It makes me wonder what he tells people we say at home. Cause really, I'm crazy enough without misinterpretations!
