We love Halloween in our house. There is no other holiday where you get to pretend to be your heart’s desire, or something funny or silly, or a super hero, or whatever, and it be socially acceptable. If I had my way, we’d dress up every day (truth be told, sometimes we do and I’ve been known to wear a tiara to Walmart just to laugh at the reactions). For me, it’s a holiday for family bonding. For them, it’s about giggles and CANDY! But it doesn’t matter because we all enjoy it! It’s not all scary and witches…it’s Bumble Bees, Super Heroes, and Ostriches…OH MY!
For once, here’s a post that’s picture heavy, and word light (I hope) because I wanted to share our Halloween memories with y‘all!
I did mention ostriches, right? It’s OK, he can’t help himself. It’s funny and it’s OK to laugh. Everyone else did too! I’m just happy to see him happy!
Of course we can’t forget my Superman. He was so excited when we crossed the bridge high up over the road. He was sure to point out that he was “Up in the Sky…just like Superman!”. It was almost as good as flying for real.
Swear that stupid ostrich made it in to at least half of my photos. Can’t a momma just take pictures of her babies without an ostrich in the way? OY!
But finally, there was trick or treat and happy times!
And sibling love and bonding that makes this momma’s heart happy!
But Super Bubby was tired!
And Baby “B” had an attitude so it was time to wrap things up!
And it was a good night. Of course any night I spend with B and the babies usually is a good night. I hope y’all had a Happy Halloween and that you keep the fun going all year round like we do. Wear a boa to Target, a tiara to Walmart, a cape to pick your kids up from school! Seriously, life is too short to wait on a yearly event to enjoy yourself and pretend. “Dress up” is OK year round, and you don’t need the reward of candy, because the giggles are reward enough in themselves!
