Halloween Rundown

April 1, 2019 in Friends, Halloween, Preschool - No Comments

I began Halloween morning at Crew’s preschool. His class went trick-or-treating at surrounding community buildings.  I got to stay to help with crafts and snacks. I can’t think of a better place to be than preschool on Halloween. The boys were cooperative as always at my attempt to gather them…

Trunk or Treat Carnival

We were astonished by our new church congregation’s Halloween carnival. They turned the traditional trunk or treat activity into a full carnival and fundraiser for the youth. There was dinner, carnival game booths, cotton candy, sno cones, a haunted trailer, a silent auction and a petting zoo. We had over…

Blake the Olympic Swimmer

March 29, 2019 in Blake, Halloween - No Comments

Blake was my second child that stuck with the same costume he wore last year. Since we moved to a new neighborhood and a new ward over the summer and costumes aren’t allowed at school, he figured no one had seen his Micheal Phelps costume yet. It was such a…

Nash the Zelda Hero

March 28, 2019 in Halloween, Nash - No Comments

Nash always has a solid idea on what he wants to dress up as for Halloween and it usually involves some sort of fantasy character. This year he chose to be Link from The Legend of Zelda. I had no idea who that was but we looked it up and…

Crew the Pirate

March 27, 2019 in Crew, Halloween - No Comments

Some costumes are too good to retire after one year and that’s how Crew felt about the pirate costume. He wouldn’t consider dressing up as anything else. That made my job easier too. Win win. If only we had inflatables like some of our neighbors, then all of Crew’s Halloween…

Finn the Robot

March 26, 2019 in Finn, Halloween - No Comments

Finn developed a love for robots and was so excited to dress up as a robot for Halloween. Any type of fleece costume is a risk in Southern California because you never know how hot it will be on Halloween, but I couldn’t imagine him being comfortable walking around in…

Mr. Skeleton

March 25, 2019 in Halloween - No Comments

Crew is our ringleader in the holiday decor category. He presses me to pull out the Halloween decorations well before October. I usually find myself agreeing because he’s so persistent. However, the final product of spider webs and orange mini lights never seems to fully satisfy him. The minimalist in…

Halloween Rundown

November 20, 2016 in Halloween, Traditions, Trunk or Treat - No Comments

We kicked off our Halloween festivities with a preschool costume party. One of Crew’s friends refused to put on his costume that his talented mom spent hours sewing. He wouldn’t wear anything but his Christmas pajamas. I think that made this capture even better. We hosted the party at our…

Halloween Costume Reveal

November 15, 2016 in Halloween - 3 Comments

I have so much to catch up on from September and October, but since I’m running a solid three months behind, I’m going to jump to Halloween so I’m not posting about it at Christmastime. My younger two wore hand-me-down costumes. Some costumes are just too good to not reuse….
