Once again, miss Kayla Grace knew exactly what she wanted to be months before Halloween and stuck with it. I’m not sure what made her choose Alice since she hasn’t been watching the movie lately but she looks adorable! She’s convince Steven to be the Mad Hatter and myself to dress as the Chesire Cate. She really wanted Cameron to be the white rabbit but he refuses. His costume is no surprise as he’s obsessed with all things vehicles. He wanted to be Thomas the Tank so I got that costume but added a conductor/engineer costume for him to wear underneath. Well, he wore the Thomas part once and won’t touch it again. But he loves the conductor costume so much he wore it to school the first day it came in the mail about a month ago.
We went to 7 pumpkin patches and/or parties this season! Kayla was very into decorating pumpkins this year. She even won a contest with kids ages 2-13 entered. She was so very proud and we are so proud of her. This girl also loves a good corn maze, unlike her mama. I always end up wanting an emergency escape route. She likes to read and find every clue and try every path if she has to. I do, however, enjoy watching the kids run around squealing with excitement when they find a path that is not a dead end. Cameron has become quite the candy fiend, he is SO ready to trick-or-treat. He does not like chocolate though which first, makes me wonder how we’re related but second, yay for me!
We have been driving around the burbank hills for weeks now looking at all the fun decorations. Our favorite spot is down on Bel Air where there’s a Star Wars themed house, a clown themed house and houses with skeletons and zombies galore. We drive by just about every day and stop and talk about all interesting things going on at each house. We’ve decided that’s where we will actually go trick-or-treating this year. I can’t wait to see what they think up close, in person. It’s going to be so much fun!
We hope everyone has a very happy, safe halloween
