I love Halloween

I LOVE HALLOWEEN! Is that clear enough? LOL. I love seeing all the kids dress up and admit I too enjoy it. It is nice to escape from the real world for a little bit and dress up as something I would like to be or a character I enjoy. I also admit to loving all the candy! Yes I am a candy fanatic and now that I have children, I confess to stealing theirs. After all, I wouldn’t want them to ruin their teeth at such a young age;)

A few years back, my Princess decided she wanted to be Tinkerbell. I got her the most adorable costume and was thrilled when I saw a Peter Pan costume. I, of course, bought it and we went out trick or treating together. This year she has decided she wants to dress as Michael Angelo from the Ninja Turtles. At first I was a little concerned about her wearing a boys costume because kids can be cruel, but then I thought it shouldn’t matter what she wants to dress as. After all, that is half the fun of Halloween. So instead of saying no, when she asked if her brother could go as Raphael, I thought why don’t we all dress up? She was thrilled with the idea, even though as soon as I said it I kind of wish I hadn’t, I mean really, walking around as a giant turtle? But the look on her face was enough to have me go online and see if I could find adult costumes. I found them and happily found a very cute female version too! So the four of us will be going out as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles this year. I will be Donatello and hubby will be Raphael.

I am actually getting excited for this. One cause I know how happy I am making my little girl but also because hubby hates Halloween almost as much as I love it. It is going to be so much fun seeing him dress up. I can’t wait to take hundreds of pics of him all dressed up!  Yeah, Yeah I know. It’s a little cruel. But I never thought I would actually get him to dress in an actual costume so it’s worth it!

Hope everyone has as much fun on Halloween as we will. What will you and/or your little ones dress as?

    So I am very sad to say we coultn’t make this happen:( Ninja Turtles seemed to be really popular and I could not get the sizes for my kids anywhere! I did let my 5 year old pick all our custumes so she is still happy. I am going to be a witch, my 2 year old is Mike from Monsters Inc and my 5 year old is going to be Abby Bominable from Monster High. Now we just have to come up with something for Daddy.
