I'm not going to lie...I don't love Halloween. But my kids sure do, and I do love making them happy. So I buy costumes and candy and make more memories! I think my favorite part is taking their pictures. They have such fun dressing up and love pretending to be someone their not for the night. I guess I love that too!
I made my costume and wore it with pride. I didn't make the shirt but did do the WW's and loved how it turned out. The kids have had their costumes for a couple weeks but I'm a mean mom and don't let them wear them until Halloween, so they've been counting down the days. Then they will be wearing them non-stop for the next month, at least. No pictures of Ben but he won second place for his Cowboy costume and performance of "Oh what a beautiful morning" at work this week. It was a long day for me with school parties, the kindergarten parade, trunk or treat, and a little bit of door to door trick or treating but totally worth it when I see those three chocolate covered faces so happy at the end of the night.
