A quick and easy card for this morning! Challenges incorporated into today's card creation:
We took our kids out trick-or-treating last night and had a fabulous time, despite the brisk temperatures and biting wind. DH and I wore our winter coats and gloves (and I should have taken my earmuffs!!) and were just barely comfortable. However, the thought of limitless sugary candy must have warmed our kids' hearts because they never once complained about being cold--and this is without the benefit of coats. Neither one wanted to ruin the look of their costume with extra bulk so they let an extra sweater layer underneath their costumes suffice. And the gloves we took along for them just in case? Too much bother!! They just got in the way of handling the candy and treats.
By the time we returned home, my fingers (in my gloves!) were numb but their bare hands were toasty warm. DH and I sipped hot cocoa while the kids sorted, tallied, and traded their candy. And first thing this morning before school, DS had to make both a bar graph and a pie chart of all the different kinds of candy he received. That's my boy!! He's all about the data. Of course, he had me print out his graphs (in color) so he could take them to school to show his second-grade teacher and class. Too cute :)
