Trick-or-Treating doesn’t happen in our neighborhood. I’m not sure why, but it’s never happened since we’ve lived here. I’ve not been the best planner in recent years but this year I know I have to figure something out for the kids’ costumes. They will be in daycare the day of Halloween, so even if we don’t Trick-or-Treat in our neighborhood they will have a celebration to enjoy. Here it is ten days before Halloween and I’ve yet to figure out what they will be for Halloween. Am I the only procrastinator?
Earlier today I started looking on Pinterest for homemade costume ideas. There were a few cute things here and there, but nothing I really thought I could do with my limited time before Halloween arrives. Many of the costumes I saw were geared towards adults anyway. Which that then reminded me of a Halloween party we have at my job on the 31st, too! Am I crazy for not thinking ahead and planning this stuff earlier? Not only do I have the kids to figure out, I have to come up with something for me, too! Ugh. A blog that I read often recently had an adorable post on 20 Pregnant Halloween Costume Ideas, so after looking at that again I think I’ve decided on the baby x-ray costume if I can find it all locally since I’ve waited til practically the last minute. Eeekkk!
Our Kids’ Costumes
So, back to the dilemma for the kids’. Well, I really debated on whether or not to even get them costumes this year. I know, what a downer I am! haha! I’ve now decided that since they have the Halloween party at daycare anyway we need to find a local event to take them to and get our money’s worth out of the costumes we buy. After researching more online I came across some super cute kids costumes and thought I’d made some last minute purchases. We decided on a Princess Jasmine costume for Addy and muscle Batman for LA (since he’s developed a slight obsession with Batman recently!).
