If you haven’t noticed, the whole pumpkin thing is already everywhere. Am I the only one who isn’t a fan of Pumpkin spice ANYTHING? YUCK. I am dreading the departure of summer. I love the freedom, the sunshine and the plethora of outdoor activities. I mean we live in LA so the weather isn’t terrible, but there’s something about the sunshine and warm air that is healing. Anyway, I better get over that shit because fall is coming– the decor is out, the food is changing and Halloween stuff is everywhere.
I swear the kids literally tell me what they want to be next year the minute we come home from Trick o Treating. I hear an ongoing echo of ‘Next year can I be..’ Now it’s the end of September and I ask the kids what they want to be and no one can tell me a darn thing! Travis and B are going for the whole Dinosaur vibe. Zoe said she wants to be Mulan– again and Natalie said she wants to be an Android– kind of or a dinosaur. #1- wtf is an Andriod? The first thing that comes to mind is a phone? I told Nat I’d google it, and she quickly replied– ‘It’s not any ole robot Mom..’ Ohhh kay kid. You let me know what you want to be and I’ll hook you up.
So until we buckle down and decide if we’re sticking to a family costume or going our separate ways, I’ll leave you with some of my FAVORITE costumes in years past. I’ve also decided that we need more than one costume. October is literally SO booked with festivities – kid friendly and not, there has to be more than just one option. Last year, we did 4 costumes each. Thank goodness we have an amazing dress up closet, but now I’m completely out of ideas.
PS if you couldn’t already tell– I do not have a crafty bone in my body so if anyone wants to make my kids’ Halloween costumes this year, I’d be forever grateful & I’ll love you forever! Or suggestions, that’d be nice too! <3
