This Halloween I crafted a plan to have all of my friends come to our home and celebrate the holiday in style; and by style I mean bring Pinterest related items. It got stressful, I’m not gonna lie. I know Mom’s who make their kids costumes and bake their own desserts and craft special games. We created a Pinterest page and there might have been a few moments of regret- BUT it was so worth it.
This is our tiniest Anna.
Saint was Capt’n Hook, and by God if he wasn’t made for that costume. Just picture the most demanding man in the world in a smoking jacket with a giant hat and sword. It’s so much easier to boss people around when you look the part.This cutie pie was an Angel. And she is an angel, so it was the perfect costume for her.
I have no formal pictures of my kids in their costumes, because I was too busy party planning and socializing. So I present to you Cinderella! She will continue to be a Ppincess as long as they continue make princess costumes in her size.
There were games for the kids too. Sadly no one got to bob for apples because we had to toss the bucket of water when Saint obsessively started splashing it and pretending it was summer time again. This kid and water- maybe he’ll be a marine biologist? Or……a dolphin trainer. We’ll see.
My friend Lynn made these scary boxes which the little boys LOVED. They had all sorts of gross things inside! And below is the doughnut game. The kids had to chew the doughnuts off of the rope- but Saint took a bite out of each one and then no one else wanted to play and so he ate all of the doughnuts.
