I am such a big kid at heart. I love anything that is remotely childish an love nothing more than the big dates on the calendar, you know, Halloween and Christmas. They are my favourite times of the year.
On Halloween this year, streamers, banners, signs, pumpkins and spooky lights adorn our house, a great spectacular to witness. A caldron full of goodies for trick or treaters and me in a scary mask to finish it off.
The boys love it also, we had a bit of a hit and miss day to start off with. Daddy wasn't at home, hasn't been for most of the holidays (boo!) and so I took the boys to a local play centre to run off some steam. It was all fun and games until Charlie decided to have a fight with a chair and lost. Ending up with a deep cut above his lip and a further cut inside his mouth. Not that he was bothered. I was panicking at the blood and he just wanted to go and play.
Home time came and the boys finally got into their costumes. Both being scary skeletons. Although Thomas had a mask to wear, I tried out a bit of face paint in him beforehand which he loved.
We live on a small estate and had agreed with the boys that we would take them around a few of the houses trick or treating which the enjoyed doing. Knock, knock, knock! Trick or treat?!
Getting home, the boys looked through their haul of sweeties and had a couple of them to munch on too. To say we only went to a few houses, they managed to get a good amount of sweets and chocolate!
The boys both fell to sleep early after their busy day and I am so happy to see them doing what children do best, having fun!
Did you dress up for Halloween?
