So a lot of my fellow bloggers are giving away treats today--like books and.....uh.....books. But I just came on to say, Happy Halloween! That's just as good, right? Yeah, I know. Not so much.
One of my girls chose to be Katniss for Halloween (yes, she is now my favorite child, don't tell the others). We went to a church Halloween party and there were 5 others dressed up like Katniss. It made my book-loving heart burst. I remember a few years back when Harry Potter was the "it" costume at the party. I just love to see kids dressing up as book characters. (Granted, my son is The Dark Knight this year and that also makes me happy. Mainly because he is adorable. But also because I love super heroes.) I love the thought that kids are reading and loving characters (don't burst my bubble by telling me they're probably just watching the movies).
What are the costumes in your household this year?
Nothing. New Jersey and NYC cancelled Halloween :(ReplyDelete
:( Huge bummer. I'm thinking of you all over here and hoping things get back on track fast.Delete
Hubby and I are carebears this year :)ReplyDelete
Fun! I love carebears!Delete
My son was vampire, and his school decided to have picture retakes the day after Halloween. Which means this morning when I dropped him off I realized there were traces of vampire blood staining his face. Shoot. My daughter was supposed to be a princess but wouldn't wear her costume...good thing it was a hand-me-down:)ReplyDelete
Ha! That is awesome. You can tell that story for the rest of his life as you'r elooking at his school pictures.Delete
I bet I can guess which child it was. What a cutie!ReplyDelete
I bet you can guess which one it *wasn't*. :) Certainly not the one who hates to read (according to her). :)Delete
I was the same way! I almost squealed at every Katniss I saw this year. So awesome. My daughter was Hermione and my son was Frodo and another son was Han Solo - so proud of all of them. And my 4 year old vampire was adorable. And my oldest child was a platypus - yep. Still wondering where that came from.ReplyDelete
