I’ve never been a halloween person. The best enthusiasm I’ve mustered was my preteen years where I made it my mission to get as much candy as possible. Even then my costumes were a little “put together” shall we say? Having a little person to make memories for has changed my tune completely. I’ve never so much as hung a decoration and this year I went all out with cobwebs and bats and skulls. It was awesome! Here are a few pictures of our day. I made this wreathe!This is the two of us at yesterday’s costume party. She’s an elephant obviously, but I’m supposed to be a woman on safari, which is a little less apparent.I made these spider cookies for the costume party. Most of them were cuter than this. (This was a reject that didn’t make the cut)We woke up to Hazel’s first snow! Over the course of the day we had a total of somewhere around 3 inches.I tried in the themed-food-department. Mummy toasts and ghost bananas anyone?She’s obsessed with this ball. She smacks it on the floor constantly and crawls after it when it rolls across the room.This is her “I’m coming for you mama” face. She’s mostly likely also saying mumumumumum, which is her favourite thing to chant. heartmelt.I also made that sign on the far right. It had a raven on the very top and a candle in the lantern. The sign reads “something wicked this way comes”I took this picture after she puked all over that cute halloween onsie. You can see her red rosy cheeks. She was right out of sorts today and I’m certain it’s teeth. #keepinitrealFor dinner I tried my hand at halloween pizzas. We’ve got a spider pizza, a few (three-eyed) monster pizzas, a snake pizza and a pumpkin pizza.Finally it was time to trick-or-treat! We just went to a few houses of people we knew since it was so cold.Shane had to work tonight, so I was on candy-duty. I ended up handing out one and a half buckets like this. About 400 pieces. To be fair, I was giving out about 3 pieces per kid.
And that was it! Hazel went to bed right at 6 because she was so tired. She’d only slept for 20 minutes all afternoon. I really hope she’s feeling better soon!
