I’m spending Halloween at home!

jackolanternThis weekend all of my sisters will be in the same state together for the first time since May 2007, and for the first time ever since my youngest niece and nephew were born.

Tony and I are flying to Indiana tonight, and my sister and her family will be there from Seattle, too. I can’t wait to see all five of my nieces and nephews in their costumes and experience the fun of Halloween from the perspective of young kids for the first time, well, since I was the little kid.

But with four families with five kids under the age of 7,  it’s going to be hectic. I don’t know if I’ll have time to check my email, let alone update my blog.

I’ll be back on Sunday with lots of adorable photos to share.  In the meantime, why don’t you tell me: what are you and/or your kids dressing up as for Halloween? I still haven’t come up with a costume, so I’m frantically searching for ideas!

I hope all of you have a safe, fun, and happy Halloween! See you Sunday!

    Our little one is going to be a duck this year! She’s only 1 so I still get to choose her costumes and since her favorite animal sound is quack quack, it seemed appropriate. I completely procrastinated getting her costume but it worked in my favor because Target marked all their costumes 30% off this week!

    Thanks for all the frugal inspiration. We’re really working hard to figure out our budget and tighten things up and you have a lot of great tips. Have fun with your family!

    How exciting!!! I hope you have a ton of fun with your family!

    A few frugal costume ideas my friends have come up with:
    -wear all hot pink and tape a flip flop to your shoulder: bubblegum stuck on a shoe
    -blue dress with a painted white tube at the top (like a paper towel tube): glass of water
    -wear running clothes with a bouquet and veil: runaway bride
    -wear a crown, and heart jewelry/clothing: Queen of hearts
    -on a plain shirt glue/paint letters, attach a spoon/laddel via string or rubberband or carry it, and put a pot on your head like a hat: alphabet soup

    My little peeps are going as a frog, a cheerleader, and two little skeletons all courtesty of the kids resale store. The only costume I bought new was for the indecisive 12 yr old who procrastinated too long. Even still, we found a cheap cape and some face paint and will turn him into a vampire for Halloween.
