For the Woods family, October is a special month. Jasper and Jenny’s favourite day in the whole year is Spooky Day where they get to wear cool costumes and eat lots of candy! But it is also Clara’s birthday, and the Woods love a good party!
Spooky Day with the Woods Family
On the morning of Spooky Day, the whole family got up early to get their jobs (that Clara of course set for them) out of the way as quickly as possible… and just in time for a rain shower!
YEEEEES! A haunted house had been set up at the park – PERFECT for Jenny and Celia!
Grandpa Matthew had also come to the park for a fun afternoon.
The girls had their photo taken before gathering their courage to enter the haunted house! (Tyla, Celia’s mom, had come to the park as well, probably to keep an eye on her daredevil daughter )
The kids were full of energy and played tag!
Little Jonas was playing hide and seek
After an exhausting game of tag, Jasper thought it was time for a ghost story (it was Spooky Day, after all!)
Clara “found” Jonas!
Then it was picnic time! One table for adults, one just for kids
Your mom…. Seriously??
After dinner, the family went back home. Ben fed Jonas, while Bubbles took a nap in the kitchen
The last hours of light were used carving the pumpkins they had brought home from the park.
The highlight of the day: Getting into the costumes to go trick or treating!!
Ben proudly sent his kids off
The first house on the list was Grandpa’s house (which is right next to the Woods’ house). Jasper and Jenny waited and waited for Grandpa to come out… so long, in fact, that his was the only house they got to visit that night!
But Jasper and Jenny didn’t mind at all! They had to be home at a certain time to give their mom her surprise birthday present!!
Clara was getting a little impatient, and Ben was nervous that the kids’ whispering would ruin the surprise….
Ben: Honey, we love you. Even when you make us work in the garden. The kids and I prepared a surprise for you….
.. but there was MORE!
After such a long day, the children was exhausted! They hugged their mom goodnight and went straight to bed!
Ben: Let’s stay out here just a little while longer
Then it was time for bed… All the kids were fast asleep….
The adults were (almost) asleep…
*CUE JAWS THEME*
Oh no, flashback to Sims 2…..!
(Read what that led to the last time, here!)
Spooky Day had been a huge success for everyone! Ben snapped a photo of his kids in front of the pumpkin lanterns before they went trick or treating… Unfortunately, Ben is a terrible photographer! (Notice the photograph in Ben and Clara’s bedroom )
