Our school year ends in December. I can't tell you how busy our Decembers are.
This year along with end of year school parties and birthday parties we also have two graduations along with the parties that go with it.
Costumes have been a theme recently.
It's been Garrett's senior year and once a month the seniors went to school dressed a certain way. The last time was an all night costume party. HIs friends begged him to go as Woody from Toy Story. So my girlfriend made his costume. She is amazing.
They had the party and then walked to school the following morning to welcome all the other grades to school and remind them that the seniors were skipping that day. If you don't have the school uniform on then you can't enter school so a group of costumed kids weren't, obviously, allowed in. This party is a senior tradition. Our apartment is on the same street as our kids school so when we heard fireworks going off at 6:45 we knew who it was.
Here's what that looked like walking by our front window.
This is Bruno, one of Garrett's best friends, dressed as Ace Ventura Pet Detective.
Oh yeah, on top of all that, she's super cute!
