Happy Halloween friends! I don’t know about you but October seemed to fly by for us. There are just so many activities from local fall fun festivals to trunk-or-treat and school parties we seem to have some Halloween activity every week. That and I probably signed us up to do everything now that I’m home and have “a little more time on my hands” (said no mom ever!)
This year Grace decided that she wanted to be a spider for Halloween – she was very adamant about it. So we got to work designing and stitching up her spider costume back in September. She’s worn it a few times now to some of the Halloween outings we’ve had and she absolutely loves it! Then yesterday I picked her up from school and she tells me she’s decided she now wants to be Elsa for Halloween and just wear her princess Elsa play dress. Seriously child, the main event is in 24-hours and you want to pull a game changer on me?!! (Insert tears of laughter/defeat here.) Luckily we compromised and she agreed to be Elsa for her school Halloween party today but still be the spider for trick-or-treating tonight. Whew, dodged that one! Thought you’d all get a kick out of that one.
Halloween isn’t really my holiday, but ever since the girls were born I’ve enjoyed decorating the house and dressing up with them each year. Its sort of become my thing now. I’m actually pretty stoked about my costume this year, check it out:
Here are a few photos from our best family costume of Halloweens past (though this year is pretty stinkin’ cute and I can’t wait to share some photos!)
A couple years ago Grace was in love with Elmo, so we bought her an Elmo costume that she refused to wear. Quick thinking and a little Pinterest magic we came up with a DIY Elmo Costume that turned out super cute and even better, she wore it the entire night!
Of course, as expected, it’s cold and rainy here. We’ll be out trick-or-treating all bundled up with blankets and cups of hot chocolate (spiked for the adults of course.) What are your plans for Halloween? Hope you all have a great (and safe) night!
