Halloween is coming!
Halloween is a fun time for my family as we make sure to get the kids costumes and to dress up as well. This year my 9 year old daughter decided she wanted to be a Werewolf, my 7 year old son is going to be a ninja, while I will be a witch and my husband will be a Night fiend. I don’t know who’s more excited, me or them. I love my witch costume its black and purple and most know purple is my favorite color.
We usually take the kids trick-o-treating at our job as the college has a safe place for kids to go and to walk around, along with games and the like. But this year we decided it’s time for them to have the experience that I had as a child and let them go house to house. My husband didn’t have such an experience as a child as he was raised Jehovah’s Witness and couldn’t participate. So in a sense this will be new and fun for him as well.
They will get to see other kids from the neighborhood walk around in scary or not so scary costumes. But they will get to immerse themselves into the Holiday a bit more. I can tell them stories all day long, but until the experience it, it’s just talk.
So what will you be…and who will you be with? Something scary or cute or a bit of both?
