This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fanta Freaky Foto Booth. All opinions are 100% mine. There's just something about this time of year. The cooler temps, the changing leaves, the holiday decor: these are all reasons I love fall. When you have little ones, it's hard to not be excited with the fun of Halloween. They look forward to their costumes and the trick-or-treating so much that it kind of rubs off on me. I'm not one to … [Read more...]

Now that LA is in school we practice things every day with him. Addy is 3 now and she loves to learn and thinks she can be just like her brother and do school things, too. It breaks her heart that she can't go to school with him.

Costumes and Halloween, Our Dilemma

Kids Costumes

Trick-or-Treating doesn't happen in our neighborhood. I'm not sure why, but it's never happened since we've lived here.

Here it is ten days before Halloween and I've yet to figure out … [Read more...]

Make it a #GREEN #Halloween! National Costume Swap Day is October 8!

This year we got LA's first costume from a review I did of Costumer Discounters. Next year, we will be either re-using this costume for the new baby (if it will fit, but I am doubting it will) or we will be participating in National Costume Swap Day!   Have you ever stopped to think about how many costumes are bought just for a ONE time use? Most of them eventually end up in the landfill and then you have the packaging too, which ends up … [Read more...]
