When you think of Halloween, you probably think of costumes and treats. I know I do. One of the fun things about this time of year is that there are so many options when making a Halloween treat – pumpkins, spiders, ghosts, bats – the creativity you see online is amazing! I really like the monster-themed treat ideas.
Jolie plays the evil Maleficent against the pure, Ella Fanning as Sleeping Beauty. These costumes mimic the tone of the film and are favorites for the 2015 Halloween season.
The Addams family was classic 60’s TV fare. The eccentric family headed by Gomez who was madly in love with his wife Morticia. They lived with their children, Puglsey and Wednesday Friday, plus Uncle Fester, Grandma Addams, Cousin Itt, Lurch, and Thing T Thing in a house that was more campy than creepy. These characters are so well loved that they’ve been brought back in remakes, though none are as fabulous as the original.
My mom is a self-proclaimed “Queen of Theme.” Growing up, she had a festive meal planned for every holiday and always had some fun themed treats in the days leading up to it. She decorated our home with simple, mostly handmade decorations like an old Aunt Jemima’s syrup bottle that she had tole-painted to look like a Halloween witch. Holidays in our house were magical and I have such good memories!
Ready for Ghosts, Gobblins, and Princesses to hit the pavement soon in search of candy? You’ve got time to prepare, but until then, curl up with a good book that’s centered around the Halloween holiday.
One of my favorite kid-friendly fall activities is visiting a local pumpkin patch or corn maze. Here in Seattle we have plenty to choose from but of course I have my favorites.
