I absolutely love Halloween and so wish we could make the occasion last a little longer.
So, in a (not-so) subtle attempt to stretch out the fun just a little bit more, I thought I’d share with you some snapshots and highlights showing how our family celebrate Halloween!
At this point Lauren abandoned our Halloween pumpkin preparations squealing something like, “Eurgh! I’m not putting my hands in there!”
We didn’t mind. Actually, I was secretly pleased as it meant I got to complete a pumpkin all by myself
Such a boy – and not at all squeamish!
Thomas is totally Lego-obsessed, so it came as no surprise that he wanted a Lego Star Wars Storm Trooper for his pumpkin.
Lauren, by far a more girly-girl, was quite determined to go with Hello Kitty. Even if she wasn’t prepared to help in any way.
Pumpkin traditionalists we are not.
… and of course, you can’t have Halloween without zombies. Ha, and I bet you thought they were just decorate-your-own gingerbread men, right?
Don’t be scared! It’s only Thomas
This year, I was super-organised and actually made Lauren’s Halloween costume.
Here’s a link to my free tutorial if you would like to find out how to make a Halloween tutu, too!
We never manage any photos without Lauren pulling some goofy faces.
For us, Halloween is all about the FUN, and that includes the food, too.
Luckily, inspiration was on-hand from Lynsey over at Moscato Mom as we made some of her delicious yummy mummy dogs .
See what I did here?
Yep, I totally sneaked some healthy food into the evening. Well, it was orange and green! But if anyone asks, it’s zombie food, m’kay?
And then there was sweetie overload x 1 million.
Ball and chain… who knew 99p Stores glow-sticks could be so much fun?!
Ta Da! I present to you… Halloween pumpkins 2013: Hello Kitty and Lego Star Wars Storm Trooper.
Oh and those cobwebs? They are totally left-over fibres from the decorations. They so are.
Do you celebrate Halloween? What do you wear? What do you get up to?
Leave a comment below, or if you have any pics, feel free to share them on my wall. I’d love to see them!
