Costumes, Parties and Friends!

It’s October 15th! I really can’t believe how this year is flying by. The kids have picked out their costumes this year.
Girl will be a Lion,

and Boy will be the gigantic blow up dinosaur.

 They look adorable and hysterical.

My mom didn’t let me or my siblings celebrate Halloween growing up, that was the “devils holiday” she said… Whatever, I say, it’s not that serious. I let my kids dress up for the Halloween parade at school and then we take them out around the house for a couple hours. I leave a big bowl of candy on our stoop and it’s always empty when we come home.

We have decided on a Paint Bar birthday party for Girl in December. Then we are renting a hotel room down the street from our house so she can swim all night and in the morning. Then she wants her scavenger hunt on her actual birthday.

I told the kids they get birthday parties from age 5 till 10, and then we cut it down to a couple friends and something fun like a sleepover or a movie and dinner. I think I might keep the scavenger hunts around for a few more years.

I can’t believe the holidays are so close already. Once Thanksgiving hits, I feel like I blink and it’s New Years. How about you? Are you ready for Halloween?

  3. Thanks for the reminder! I gotta order the accessories for my daughter’s costume ASAP! My boy is 2 and fights anything more than a T-shirt and pants going on, so thinking it might not be worth stuffing him in a costume! I love the idea of a scavenger hunt for birthdays!

  4. We participated in a Halloween event last weekend at a local Provincial Park where all the kids went trick or treating campsite to campsite. One of the kids came in the big blow up dinosaur costume and I DIED laughing – it was great!
