I always feel little sad when Halloween is over. To me, I always feel like there’s magic in the air around Halloween – and just for Fall in general. We had a great Halloween and this was the first year my son made it the whole night on his on. I didn’t have to carry him, put him in a wagon, nothing. He walked (with minimal complaining) and overall had a great time.
Naturally, I needed to start my day with a Frappula Frappuccino from Starbucks. The barista warned me he may have bled in my drink, but what’s a little blood on Halloween?
I spent a good hour plus on my Dia de los Muertos makeup and was THRILLED with how it turned out. I watched a few YouTube videos and set to work. By the end of the night I was sad to take it all off. It was a lot of fun to embrace the culture of this and I even made sure to light a candle last night to honor the actual holiday of Dia de los Muertos.
Here is my sweet, spooky bat. I was seriously so happy he wanted to be a bat. I was expecting a superhero or Storm Trooper (not that I’m against those), but I know only have so long that he’ll want to be something that isn’t an actual character.
Family shot on our way into the Halloween party. Our friend hosted it and she did an amazing job with the decorations and food.
After the party, we left to trick-or-treat with our other friends. Nugget was THRILLED that one of the houses had a haunted house and Grave Digger from Monster Jam. This kid loves monster trucks and was so excited. They had to bring it in on a semi and everything – definitely the coolest house in the neighborhood for sure.
Here’s a quick shot of our front door before we shut down shop and turned out the lights. Hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween and is surviving the candy coma.
What do you dress up as this year for Halloween?
