I've been doing Halloween posts three years running now, and I don't see any reason to stop. Halloween is one of those dress me up, give me way too much candy, and let me have a lot of nighttime fun kind of holidays. I have many happy memories of choosing a costume, working hard to create it just like it was in my imagination, and then showing it off to all my neighbours while collecting a bag full of candy I probably didn't need. And it's fun to see my boy now getting to the age where he really gets lost in the anticipation, imagination, and excitement of the holiday.
This year, he was a train man (again, surprise surprise) and his dad escorted him as Captain Smith from the Titanic itself. And Amelia was a lady bug, though she only made it until 6:30 before she crashed in her crib. And I, well, I was in my usual costume - a whitch of course :) cackle, cackle.
A few photos of the evening coming up. But first Amelia's first birthday halloween party:
I made caramel apples, surprisingly easy, and festive I'd say.
And tonight: Captain Smith and his train engineer.
|Matt wore Jake's captain hat from 2012. FIt like a glove.|
Our not so sleepy looking, sleepy ladybug.
Our spooktacular house:
And Jake's loot (this is only our neighbourhood. After this he went to Nana's neighbourhood and brought home double!)
I mean, check out all the coffee crisp alone... that can't be good for his teeth. In fact, I think I'll take him to go brush them now.
Have a spooky night!
