Finally it's here and what a great day to spend it on this beautiful cool Kentucky day!
I have all of my Halloween decorations out. Besides getting pumpkins but I don't like to do that till it truly is fall weather. I got all the birthday party stuff besides food which I can't get till it gets closer. I have a few more things to do but other than that I can sit back relax and enjoy being pregnant during cool weather! Which hasn't happened before! 2 more weeks till we find out what we are having and Miss.Lydia's 3rd birthday! Here are some Pictures of some of my Halloween decorations. I went this weekend and of course the Dollar Tree has great stuff as always and for a dollar! Target's stuff was amazing and cheaper this year. Their One Spot has all kinds of crafts and Halloween stuff for kids. from 1 to 3 dollar items. Here are some Pictures.
|At the dollar tree for a dollar I put the owls in my windows and the rats in the kitchen so great! comes with 15 of them.|
|Target don't get! It torn apart as I was pulling it apart even if you do it easy so not worth 2 dollars or 50 cents.|
|Target's one spot a craft for Lydia.|
|Targets one spot craft for Mason.|
|They had these this year but much cheaper. They look great!|
|I got this guy last year for Christmas finally got to hang him up.|
My kids aren't scared of anything Halloween.The kids Birthday's are both in October and I have had a Halloween themed birthday party every year. It's my favorite Holiday and both of the kids first holidays. Plus my love for old scary movies and just me and my husbands love for odd or scary things that tend to hang in our home. Now we don't push anything on the kids if they are scared of course and don't watch or show the kids anything scary or over the top. Most of the time we just make fun of it and laugh then the kids do the same. My daughter just says eeewww look and laughs and my son isn't scared of anything haha he is a boy! We just make it fun and not a big deal. A lot of people like to make Halloween to be a evil holiday and something to not celebrate which drives me mad. Halloween is a time for kids and fun just like any other holiday. I think Halloween is better in some cases because it gives the kid a chance to experience giving without wanting anything in return like Trick or Treating. It's a creative time of year where your child can be anything they wanna be! I love anything and everything about the holiday! Don't make it into anything other than a fun time for kids and you. Enjoy fall and don't worry Christmas is just around the corner!
