Are you taking your LO(s) trick or treating? Yep, we're going around the entire neighborhood i'm sure bec/ we have my step daughter. If it was just M i'de probably take him to a few houses then come home and pass out candy
Are you doing anything else special for Halloween? Nope!
What are you going to do with any candy they get? Eating it? Haha.. i try to give M candy sometimes but he honestly wont eat it so
Are you taking your LO(s) trick or treating? Yup! We'll do a few blocks in our neighborhood and then come home and get DH (he'll be handing out candy at home) and walk down our street.
Are you doing anything else special for Halloween? We're going to Boo at the Zoo on Sunday afternoon. Hyvee also has indoor trick or treating about an hour before regular ToT starts so we'll go up there on Halloween to get a few treats. Kaija also has a Halloween parade at preschool so I'm going to have Kolbie dressed in her costume too since parents are allowed to hang out a little bit and take class pictures
What are you going to do with any candy they get? Kolbie will be allowed a few pieces. It's amazing how much more relaxed about stuff you get after your first kid I'm not saying I allow either of them to have tons of candy, but I wouldn't have allowed Kaija candy at 19 months old. I'm sure DH and I will eat most of it anyway.
Is their costume ready? Almost! We found Thing 1 and 2 winter hats in the last place I ever would have looked! I made the sticker patches for their shirts. I sewed Kolbie's pants together last night but I need to put her in them to figure out if I need to take them in and get the hem right. The pattern I have is for way bigger kids! I think I'm going to try to whip up some mittens for them too. And I may make Kaija some pants... I better decide quick!
Are you taking your LO(s) trick or treating? Yes, every year!!!
Are you doing anything else special for Halloween? Nope, this Saturday is pretty big for us though b/c it's Brandon's birthday and the South Carolina/Tennessee football game and that's always a HUGE day at our house. Plus we have company from out of town visiting that weekend...Mia's godmothers!
What are you going to do with any candy they get? They'll get tons, and inhale tons and so will I. I don't try to limit them on halloween as long as I check it over first and they aren't making themselves sick!!!
Is their costume ready? For the most part, yes. The girls are all going as witches and I need to get small things like tights and such...
Are you taking your LO(s) trick or treating?Yep - we will go my in-laws neighborhood. Ours only has like 6 houses. I probably will stay in with Julia, but Jed will go around with daddy and his cousins.
Are you doing anything else special for Halloween? Not really. I realy wanted to go to Boo at the Zoo, but with Julia that was impossible this year.
What are you going to do with any candy they get? I'll let Jed have some. I just have to make sure we take the wrappers off first! He will try to eat it with the wrapper. DH and I will eat some too.
Is their costume ready?Yep. Jed is going to be a frog and Julia has a "my first halloween" onesie to wear.
