Halloween has always been my favorite holiday since I was a child. I used to love getting dressed up and going trick or treating till the final moment that I was going to collapse from exhaustion. So, when I had my kids, I knew that Halloween would be a big deal in our family. Every year, I start thinking about what the kids will wear in July. Yes, I am crazy but it has to be perfect.
Well, this year, I didn’t have to think twice what the kids would wear. When I mentioned to Hayley what she wanted to be, without hesitation, she screamed SMURFETTE! I thought to myself this could work as I can dress Zane as Papa Smurf. He has a big belly to begin with, so the costume would fit him true to form.
So off they went as Papa Smurf and Smurfette! They had a blast. Zane lasted only an hour because it was extremely cold. So I dropped him off with my husband at home and they answered the door to all the trick or treaters. Meanwhile, Hayley and I continued our trick or treating adventures till 8:30 pm. Both of us were tuckered out and had a sugar high when we came back. It was a fantastic night!
My mother in law made these!
My husband did a fantastic job on the carving!
Now that Halloween is ended, we are looking forward to the next few holidays – Thanksgiving, Chanukah, and Christmas. As I am writing this post, Hayley is watching her favorite Caillou’s Holiday Favorite 3-pack DVD set. These DVDs are awesome and include the Winter Wonders, Holidays, and World of Wonder DVD’s. These 3 DVDs are over 3 hours of Caillou fun and would be a wonderful addition to your children’s holiday gifts. Hayley was already a huge Caillou fan and these DVDs brought Hayley to have even further Caillou obsession! If you are interested in purchasing them, the whole 3-pack of DVDs can be bought for $19.99 at Pbskids.org.
