Everyday is Halloween

All my friends know that I love Halloween!  Really, what’s not to like? Candy, dressing up, scary movies the week before Halloween, and  having fun walking around the neighborhood with friends (did I say candy???) – it’s all there!

I tried to find Rachel’s first costume with no luck 🙁  It was an adorable little princess costume that I bought for her “first

Halloween”.  Of course I purchased a few days before the big day, but it was cute.  I didn’t take her trick-or-treating because (1) we were returning from a meeting in Boston on Halloween (2) she was 9 months old and babies can’t eat snickers bars.

Anyway, Halloween was extra fun this year, because I got to dress up two little dolls instead of one!   Since I couldn’t find the little princess dress, I went shopping for Sarah – this time ONE DAY BEFORE HALLOWEEN!  Luckily, the

party shops around us do Halloween up big time, and they carried lots of babycostumes.  I know it sounds silly…  I had resolved not to stress out if I couldn’t find anything, but was willing to try.    I managed to find a cute little lamb costume.  It was perfect for little Sarah Amelia!

 

 

 

Rachel’s costume was really straight forward.  I simply told her that she must choose from something that was already in

our house.  I agreed to buy accessories as needed but no big expense on costumes.  This may sound harsh, but she has tons of dress up stuff, and a lot those things were pricy gifts from the grandparents.  She picked the lovely Cinderella dress that her Nanna bought her at Disneyworld.  I agreed to let her wear makeup, so all was well.

Trick-or-treating was fun – of course!  Sarah Amelia was very chill in her stroller.  We found a bunch of neighborhood girls to cruise the neighborhood and had lots of fun!  Bryan stayed at the house and handed out candy.  I think that the girls and I had more fun than he did!

There are a few really cool houses that play scary music and the adults dress up.  One house a block away plays scary movie music – Halloween sound track in heavy rotation and the dad dresses up and has a chain saw!!!!  He doesn’t scare the little kids, which is really nice.  Rachel has always been very brave trick-or-treating there!  (of course, because she is cool like that!).  This year, her and her little friends, “wanted to be scared”, so the dad put on a show!!  We probably spent the last 15 min at that house “getting scared”…
