Without a doubt there are a million things I do that are WAY more fun with the kiddos. Halloween proved to be no exception. Now, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy adult time, too, but I can’t remember the last time Halloween was such fun for me. Okay, except for maybe a Halloween ten or so years ago when my friends and I dressed as reindeer and Mrs. Clause.
We had a few fun events leading up to the big day. There was a Halloween celebration in Little Mister’s class. I made ghost shaped cupcakes for small group of very excited three year olds.
We had to bring a dessert item to the Halloween Potluck and made cupcakes. Notice the trend here, but hey, the batter was made.
We had a pumpkin carving in our neighborhood. It was cold and rainy but that didn’t stop us! Everyone had fun – we ordered pizza and drank a few cold ones.
Little Mister was very eager to get started.
Our pumpkin looked like Elmo.
There was a Halloween Potluck supper at Little Mister’s school. He was happy to don his Buzz costume and run around with his friends for a while.
And then – THE BIG DAY!!!
We started off taking some photos of the kids before heading out.
We had princesses and dragons. Q Man went as himself.
Look where Q Man “innocently” puts his hand! Little sneak!
Everyone had a blast! Little Mister was at the head of the pack, racing up to every door. He almost kissed a witch at one house! Ironically it was the same house he ignored the Grim Reaper and that gave all of us a good laugh!
We had a great time trick-or-treating and when we got home the kids were exhausted but in high spirits.
And there was a lot of candy.
