Halloween is coming

I love Halloween but for some reason this year I am having trouble get in the mood for Halloween. I am usually planning my pumpkins, making costumes for the kids, finding fun snacks to make for the preschools and so far I have done nothing and it is bumming me out. I wanted to come up with a fun costume theme for the kids but so far nothing has struck me as wonderful yet, that they would agree to. However, my stepdad called yesterday and suggested making them Snow White and 4 of the dwarves. I love this idea but not sure I can get Liam and go for it. Thought we might watch the movie and see if that might convince them. If anyone has a great suggestions for themed costumes please feel free to share.

In the past we have done. Pooh, Piglet, and Tigger

We did a Ghostbuster and a ghost. Along with a sheep and what was suppose to be Bo Peep, but Lexi outgrew Bo Peep before Halloween came around

Then my favorite was the characters from Mario. Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toadette

Last year brought us Pac Man fever with Pac Man, Inky,Blinky,Pinky and Clyde

  2. Oh my goodness... PAC MAN!! That is awesome. I so wish I could talk my kids into wearing something cool like that. All they want to be is something from Star Wars! Even my 3 year old daughter wants to be a Jedi. ARG! ha.

  3. Hi

    Glad you found some Halloween spirit to participate in Saucy's charm swap. I got my package today and wanted to let you know that I love your neon spider and trick or treat basket with goodies. Thanks so much for them.

    I loved making Halloween costumes for the kids and usually dressed up too. Maybe your eldest would like to go as the prince from snow white or maybe the face in the mirror. You could go as the wicked stepmother. Am sure you will work it out - your costumes are great.

    My nine year old wants to be a made up creation - he wants to wear the bottoms from a tiger costume I made him when he was 3 (it fits him like knickers now) and a flesh coloured t-shirt with muscles drawn on and some scary mask - at this stage I do what he commands.

  4. Just popped by (albeit belatedly) to let you know I received your neon spider in Saucy's charm swap! You are one busy family with all those little people under 9! I'm sure you'll find your mojo soon and will be ready for Hallow'een! You've had some fun ones so far! Happy Hallow'eening!
