Halloween with two kids under two years old means buying costumes the week of and hoping the 22 month-old is willing to wear it. It worked out pretty well. The only part of her bee costume she refused to wear was the headband. Little dude briefly wore his caterpillar costume, but since it was in the high 80s here and his costume was pretty warm, he didn’t stay in it long. Kind of a bummer cause it was so cute.
A few days before Halloween we took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch and had a blast picking out mini pumpkins for the kids and taking lots of pictures.
The day before Halloween, a good friend invited the kids to go “table-side trick-or-treating” at a local retirement home and it was so cute. I’m sure this will be a yearly event now. Watching the little ones interact with the older residents was so sweet. Squeaks got quite the bucket full of candy, however we don’t let her eat sugar so I did a stealth snack switch for healthier options and she didn’t even notice. She was very happy with her granola bars, crackers, and raisins.
On Halloween night we went to our church’s harvest festival. Squeaks was more interested in the hay bales then in playing many of the games, and Little Dude slept through the whole thing, but it was fun to see all the other costumes.
Overall a very fun start to the holiday season!
