Hubby & I love Halloween & we go all out for it every year. HUbby will be a clown & I of course will be a witch ! Last year we had a coffin with a body in it & a bubbling culdren & all kinds of scarey things in our garage . The neighbor across the street is a DJ & he had movies & music running all night in his garage . WE had over 15 pumpkins lit up & sitting every where . Really had a ball teasing the kids & giving out candy treats .
I know...I just love Halloween...such a fun holiday, and I love having an excuse to dress up. Now with kids, it's even better. It's hard though...Before kids, I used to have so much fun decorating and handing out candy to the kids, but since I have to take my own out, I don't get to do the handing out so much. The last couple of years, we have just left a big bowl out, with a note reminding kids to not be greedy, and surprizingly enough, there was still candy left when we got back. We tend to head out with our kids earlier, so by the time we get back, there are still kids coming to the door. For the most part, the kids out here are so nice and polite I really enjoy seeing everyone.
@mpjp0907... it has taken us years to accumlate all of our hoilays decorations. I took 5 huge boxes full of xmas decorations to HAMM about a month ago . I do have 2 high boy chest of drawers I will be selling if you want to come look at them before I place them on the classifieds . I paid $568.00 each for them & will be asking $350.00 each .....just let me know when you want to check them out.
I was initially thinking of Alice in Wonderland myself, as my favorite Disney character is the Cheshire Cat (I have a tattoo of him on my back). My daughter would have been a very cute Alice, and I was thinking the Mad Hatter for my husband, and of course the Cheshire Cat for myself, but wasn't sure what my son would be- I didn't want to make him be Tweedle- Dumb! and if I were to be the Queen of Hearts instead of the Cheshire Cat, I don't know if he would really want to be a pink and purple cat! Actually, my son could be the Mad Hatter, and my husband could be Tweedle-Dumb!
I saw this and thought it was so cute! I would want a longer, less tight dress though!
