I love the month of October. Hoodie weather, colorful leaves, apple cider, pumpkin picking, and of course Halloween. Having kids certainly makes dressing up a little more fun. Since things have been so hectic here lately I was lucky to come across costumes for the kids and myself fairly easy. A good friend let us borrow an adorable Mickey Mouse costume for Parker. It fit perfectly and was very comfortable! The Mickey hands are from Robs childhood and are used daily when the kids are dressing up. They were the perfect touch although they didn’t stay on long.
Caity was Alice since the dress my mom had made for her ONEderland birthday was just too cute not to wear more than once. I can’t believe how much they have grown in just a year!
I recently joined a few local FB groups online for moms. It’s such an easy way to make new friends, especially when you are new to the area. A few of us met up at a local mall to show off the kiddos costumes and have lunch. It was great to get out with some other moms and little. I participated in the Teal Pumpkin Project this year and that night we gave out Play Doh and glow sticks to the kiddos. They were certainly a hit and even a few parents stopped to say thank you.
When it was time to take Parker out he said he wanted to stay and help me give out treats to “his friends”. Not really wanting candy around the house we didn’t push the issue.
That night we decorated pumpkin cookies which Parker had a blast doing. Caity was a little too impatient and started eating hers before it was even decorated.
