Our First Halloween

Confession: I have never really liked Halloween. This may come as a shock to those that don’t know me, but will be no surprise to those that do. The excitement of a costume, made or bought, has not been my thing since about grade seven, and even then, I think my get-up was a recycled idea from a couple of years prior (a gypsy).

Fast forward fifteen years, and suddenly I am convinced I need just one more decoration, and one more Halloween-themed snack idea. Gasp! Having a little one really changes these sorts of things! We dressed little Thea as Minnie Mouse this year, because it was just too darned cute, and Minnie happens to be one of her favourite stuffed animals.

I was also excited to host our monthly mom’s meet up that day, so I thought it would be really fun to have a little Halloween party. We had a great morning hanging out, snacking and admiring all of the adorable costumes. A great way to kick off a festive weekend!

It goes without saying – these babies could melt your heart every day, not just Halloween! And these moms I’ve met, and can happily call my friends, warm my heart. They’re the best!

Conclusion: I am now a Halloween liker. Not quite a lover (yet).

I would love to know – what have been some of your most successful Halloween costumes, either for yourself or your little ones? I’m going to start collecting ideas for next year ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Monday to you, and a very happy week!

  1. Awww so much cuteness! I swear, there’s nothing cuter than babies in costumes ๐Ÿ™‚

    My love for Halloween has definitely dwindled over the years, but I can see that it will be picking back up now that I’m a mom. We weren’t home this year for Halloween so I didn’t do any decorating, but next year will be a different story! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. How adorable!! What a sweet bunch! I totally know what you mean about warming up to Halloween too- I’ve also found that having the mini-peeps around makes it a lot less… “Paegan?!”…Hahaha!
