Happy Halloween! I loved Halloween as a kid. I remember the excitement of carving the pumpkin, eating a quick dinner and then setting out with my dad in a sweet little costume I was thrilled about! The candy was fine but the excitement of the day and night was way better! Each of my kiddos are in such different stages of kid-hood so it’s fun for me to watch how they each enjoy it differently.
Emily (she’s 15) is excited about having some girlfriends over where they’ll huddle over the fire pit, eat smores, drink apple cider, and hang out in her ENO under some twinkle lights that she hung in the trees.
Grace (she’s 11) will go to a girlfriend’s house, trick-or-treat with her and then spend the night. She’s dressing up as a “mature bumble bee” (as she put it). Here’s a pic of her after she figured her costume out a few days ago! I’m a little sad not to have her walk with us through the neighborhood this year but super happy she’ll be with a good friend. Corban is excited and doesn’t even know why! :) He already had a Spiderman mask and t-shirt so I found some pj pants to go with them… therefore, Spiderman he’ll be! He’s just excited about being excited! :) We’ll take him to an outside neighborhood party and then trick-or-treating with him throughout the rest of the neighborhood. Stay safe everyone and enjoy your little ones tonight, no matter their age!
