Are you ready? I just returned from Target and bought LOADS of candy. This year I adopted a new strategy....wait to purchase candy at the last minute so I don't gain those pre-Halloween 5 pounds.
My girls are SO excited. My little girl is dressing as Laura Ingalls - warms my heart as I dressed as Laura Ingalls back in the day. My tween girl's costume was a last minute decision, seems it is important to have just the "right" cool costume in 5th grade along with a few friends to go as something together. So she decided she would be a "nerd" - since when are nerds cool? I am learning to not ask questions and just run with it. We DID have a great time (and alot of laughs) at the thrift store picking out just the right, most nerdy clothes we could find!
What kind of trick o' treating neighborhood to you live in? Do you get lots of little ghosts and goblins coming to your door? We do! Ours is the neighborhood that everyone comes to that does not live in a neighborhood! It is fun to both go out with the kids for a bit and then come home, poor myself a glass of red wine and answer the door.
Wishing you a Happy Halloween!
