I think I say this ever. freaking. year. “Is it seriously almost Halloween already?” I am still saying August religiously. September didnt even get an ounce of my attention. We might as well start wrapping Christmas gifts people. We are leaving on a trip today so we snuck in our pumpkin patch visit because buy the time we return it really will be Halloween. I am so on top of the fact that this month is flying by that I ordered our family Halloween costumes WEEKS ago people. I have been having to beat the kids off of the box because they are DYING to play in them. This year we ordered from Catching Fireflies- and I have to stay this theme was chosen by Rhyker sooooo you can only guess what it is. (I can’t wait to share!) This is our 6th Halloween doing family costumes and I fear it may be our last- as the kids get older they are really wanting to do their own thing… (as tears well up in my eyes, I might have to let the streak go.) Do you do family costumes or just let the kids pick them out? We really enjoy dressing up as a family and although my husband would like to pretend to be put out, he really gets a lot of joy making the kids happy and dressing up alongside them. I hope they remember these little tiny gestures of love when they are older and actually appreciate it. My mother always dressed up along with my Nino and it’s some of my most treasured childhood memories. This little visit to the pumpkin patch was short (hot) and sweet… and although we started strong by the end EVERYONE was in tears over a bag of chips. Yep. Lets hope they remember the fun and not the mean mother who doesn’t let them eat GMO crap- we save that for trips to Grandma’s house. (The kids tee’s are from Chaser.com- and its not to late you should totally order them)
Let me know what your little one is being – I can’t wait to hear them all. Also be sure to check out this little video below, I have really been enjoying making these and sharing them. Let me know what I should make next !
